Thava Indian Restaurant

Award-winning Indian restaurant now open!

Norwood’s renowned Thava Restaurant is bringing a fresh new take on Indian cuisine to Montecasino, with an authentic menu of tasting and sharing options, tapas, main courses and, in a first for Montecasino, gourmet street food served from a traditional Indian food cart Thava’s menu features Indian cuisine using the freshest local ingredients and aromatic spices in a unique tapas offering, served in small portions or as a shared main meal, manner, all designed for sharing, tasting, experiencing, and enjoying. All Thava’s chefs are from India and most from Kerala to retain the feel of the ‘old country’.

Thava’s menu includes an array of vegetarian, lamb, chicken or seafood dishes; fragrant curries, biriyanis and stews; spicy tandoori and masala dishes, all served with traditional breads, rice dishes and side dishes of freshly prepared chutneys, pickles or vegetables.
The food cart menu features dishes designed for takeaway, including Tandoori Bunny, Paani Poori, Momos Vegetable patties, Panjabi chaat, and more. Customers place their orders with any manager carrying a tablet, collect their orders from the window or trolley, and then can sit and eat on the terrace or move around the streets of our Tuscan village with their bite-sized dishes.

Thava has earned a well-deserved reputation over nine years as one of Joburg’s finest Indian restaurants, with a menu that reflects recipes handed down to owner Mathew Abrahams by his mother. Mathew, originally from Kerala, a state on the south-western Malabar coast of India, and Chef Philippe Frydman, who has been the consultant for Thava since it started, are continuing to deliver the Indian cuisine “with a difference”. Adding an innovative edge to their restaurant, Thava brings a gourmet food cart concept to Montecasino, offering Indian street food to passers-by and a casual sit-down area for those who want to sit and watch the world go by from the centre of the action at Montecasino, opposite Skoobs and near the grand staircase entrance.
