The Curry Room at The Rubens at The Palace Hotel


Situated within The Rubens at The Palace, The Curry Room is an enjoyable dining experience. Offering up three courses conjured by Chef Arun Kumar, The Curry Room showcases Indian ingredients to offer guests a gourmet journey.

The menu takes inspiration from The Rubens at the Palace sister property, The Oyster Box Hotel in Durban. Spices are exclusively imported from India to create a rich vibrancy of dishes. The restaurant itself boasts rich Rajasthani hand embroidery and opulent colours providing a feeling of warmth and richness. 

As starters dishes include keema samosa and poppadoms with homemade lime pickle, mango chutney and mint raita. Guests can select traditional Indian curries, with an option to select a Thali of three as their main course and round off the evening with a selection of desserts, including Kulfi ice cream, a must-try.
