Incredible Curry Buffet

Due to current restrictions, we will not be serving the buffet.

The Curry Buffet in the Ocean Terrace Restaurant continues to attract fans from far and wide. Set in the casual, Mediterranean-inspired Ocean Terrace, with gorgeous views across the Indian Ocean, the impressive curry selection, of at least 11 curries daily, includes meat, fish and vegetarian options. Using delicate blends of spices and fresh herbs, each curry is a masterpiece in itself.

From the delicate flavours of the Singapore Fish Curry, using the freshest fish of the day, to the spicy, hot Beef Vindaloo and smooth-textured Butter Chicken. Vegetarian options delight as Bean and Botie sit side-by-side with, Vegetable Korma and Sugar-Bean Curry. The city’s famous Chicken and Prawn Curry and the Oyster Box’s signature Traditional Durban Lamb Curry remain firm favourites.

Accompanied by fresh, home-made condiments including lime and vegetable pickle, home-made Chutneys, Raitas, Sambals and freshly baked Naan breads, Papadums and Roti, the Curry Buffet, compels diners to return time and again.

Two Tandoori ovens guarantee authentic, freshly prepared Tandoori chicken, also available on the Buffet.
