My daughter and I, being ex Durbanites , along with our husbands have wanted to try Durban Spice for so long. Then along comes Covid! However last night was the night. Shabs and Sarah graciously welcomed us into their home, which has some lovely South African touches. The smells coming from the kitchen were amazing. Thank goodness we were hungry! It was a seafood night and wow, it didn’t disappoint. We started with Severn & Wye smoked mackerel & trout pate, with gorgeous sourdough bread. 😋 We could see we definitely weren’t going to go home with empty bellies. We then had monkfish & crab samosas with a lovely mango apple & chilli relish. Main course was black tiger prawns & king prawn curry with rice & sambals, ahh who remembers Durb sambals! Now getting really stuffed. Dessert was granadilla ( passion fruit) & coconut slice with granadilla curd cream. I personally couldn’t finish mine but it was absolutely delicious. The whole meal was one of the best we’ve tasted in a long time. Sarah was a consummate host, explaining every course as it was served. Shabs is an incredible cook and a lovely guy. Will we be back….Try stopping us, we even bought some of Shabs famous samosas to bring home. Thanks Shabs & Sarah for a fabulous relaxing evening with amazing food, you both deserve every success. Hope to see you again soon.

What an awesome evening!
Thanks Shabs and Sarah for a culinary journey back to my hometown of Durban!
Those potato samoosas were the best I have EVER tasted and paired with the delicious chutneys - well heaven.
The bunny chow did not disappoint either. The lamb was delicious and tender and the sauce was just spicy enough. Mimi’s pickle - simply divine! You have to sell that by the bottle!
That Malva pud was also amazing! but I could not finish it as I just thought I might pop!
Can’t WAIT to come back again and enjoy some more of your hospitality and amazing meals.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

It was fantastic to have you join us and we are so happy we were able to transport you back home to re-live the tastes of Durban! Look forward to welcoming you back!

Fantastic food experience

My husband and I attended Durban Spice with a bunch of friends for their renowned bunny chow night last night. It most certainly did not disappoint! From the samoosa starter and malva pudding dessert, everything was even better than expected. We all felt so welcome and comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed the stories surrounding the different dishes and delicious accompaniments! The room almost went quiet when the food was served as everyone delved in to enjoy the unforgettable taste sensation. We will be back! Thank you Durban Spice for giving us a little taste from home 🇿🇦

Thank you so much! We are delighted you enjoyed your night and the taste of home!!

This is hands down one of the best food experiences I have ever had. Every mouthful is delicious and the ingredients are top quality. Sarah is a phenomenal host, explaining the South African roots of the dish which personalises the experience. Wonderful, friendly atmosphere. And Shabs is a culinary genius!

We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed our Supper Club experience, thank you for such fabulous feedback, we love that you loved it!
