Thanks to Sarah and Shabs for a wonderful evening at Durban Spice. Everything about the evening was like being home. Family, the relaxed atmosphere, the accents, the laughter – but most of all the great taste of home. The flavours took me straight back to Durban, to Mrs Govenders Bunny Chow in Congella where I used to work. Thank you!

First time at Durban Spice and first time with South African cuisine…..definately not the last!. Food was lovely, so many flavours and so much care for details! Sarah went through every single dish with us and Shabs cooked such an amazing 5 course dinner. Such an amazing evening! Highly recommended. PS Looking forward to for a new seafood event!

Had this as my birthday treat and it was like home away from home, the food was out of this world and the aromas took me back home. Sarah and Shabs were amazing hosts and made us feel so very welcome, going the extra mile. I highly recommend Durban Spice for a twist on authentic South African food. Thank you so much – we will definately be back!

This is my second review! Last night we finally managed to attend the Bunny Chow evening! What a delight! They are brilliant hosts and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming! The food is ‘Lip-lek-lekker’, they know and love their food and have perfected it to a fine art. Everyone should go!

Shabs and Sarah are the most hospitable hosts and the food is out of this world! Amazing dishes and things I might never have tried before if I haven’t gone. Shabs is an amazing cook and Sarah runs through each course in detail – it’s definately one that’s not to be missed. Thank you both so much for having us.

Shabs and Sarah are great hosts. Food was out of this world along with the background story for each meal made the whole experience truly memorable. Great evening with spectacular food . We will be back. Chicken curry took me right back to South Africa.

Found a gem tucked away in Oxford. What a fabulous dinner with food we love and remember from our native town Durban. Best meal I’ve eaten in the UK. Congratulations and thank you to Shabs and Sarah on a superb meal, brillant hosts and stunning venue. Our English family truly enjoyed the meal.

What a fantastic evening had by myself and my Mum last night at one of Durban Spice’s Seafood evenings. Not only was the meal amazing but the hospitality too, we felt so welcome from the moment we walked in. We can’t wait to go back again, thank you for a wonderful evening!

Just got back from a fabulous meal at Durban Spice. Food was beautifully presented and cooked and expertly introduced. A thoroughly enjoyable experience for our first ever supperclub and we both more or less saddled out of the door. Fantastic flavours and fabulous hosts in Shabs and Sarah! We will be back!.

This was our first meal at the Durban Spice but it won’t be our last. From the moment we walked through the door Sarah & Shabir were the perfect hosts. Beautiful dining area, excellent food and loved the information Sarah gave on the courses we were having. Such a fun enjoyable evening felt like we had known them for years. Highly recommended can’t wait to come back. Thank you.

Love love LOVE the food at Durban Spice; best bunny chow I have ever had (and I grew up in Durban). We have visited Durban Spice twice now, and each time we have been blown away by the food. Sarah and Shabir are welcoming and professional, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone. The boerewors samosas alone are worth the visit!
