1860 is an absolute delight

We eat here regularly and always several members of the party will have a Mutton Bunny Chow, for the uninitiated this is a Traditional Durban Curry served hot as hades, mild as butter or anywhere in between according to your personal preferences. The meal is served inside half a loaf of bread with the scooped out insides served alogside to help mop up the juices. The owner has the bread baked locally to his own recipe to provide the most authentic Durban flavour.

The staff are nearly all family members and on the quieter week days they will always make the time to chat with you.

My only minor critisism is the price of the excellent South African sourced drinks menu. They are not horrendous though and the Robertsons Red wine is amazing.

Take the time to visit this fantastic restaurant you will not forget it
