Durban curry at this upmarket halaal restaurant

Lamb curry, lamb rogan josh, tiger prawn curry, butter chicken are specialties

Last updated: Monday, 13 June 2022

New, upmarket and halaal, that’s Nouveau Coffee & Grill in Milnerton. Its hearty menu includes Durban-style curries, steaks, seafood and desserts. It’s a warm and cosy space and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Nouveau has a modern, fresh style, with splashes of sage at the bar that accentuate the exposed brick walls. There’s a variety of seating, from modern, high-chairs to comfortable couches, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.

Durban-style curries are Nouveau’s speciality – they’re the real deal. Chef Mohamed Ifthikaar Shaik grew up in Durban and attended culinary school there. He offers four particularly noteworthy curries: A traditional lamb curry made with A-grade lamb, slow-cooked in Indian spices; Lamb Rogan Josh, a staple of Kashmiri cuisine made with intense spices; tiger prawn curry and butter chicken. All are served with sambals and roti, naan, or Basmati rice.

Not in the mood for curry? There’s plenty else on the menu. Start off with a smoked salmon salad or peri-peri chicken livers entrée and, for mains, order from the grill section. It offers premium cuts, from fillet steak and sirloin to rump, and Tomahawk. For dessert, get a chocolatey brownie, cheesecake, granadilla panna cotta or crème brûlée.

The Tomahawk steak ranges between 430g and 450g. Image: Centric Media


Nouveau Coffee & Grill is open: Monday to Sunday, 7am to 10pm
Find it: Shop 3 | Century Village Centre | Century City | Cape Town
Price range: From R57 (for peri-peri chicken livers)
