9th Avenue Waterside

9th Avenue Waterside runs under the patronage of a celebrated local chef and serves up offerings of local produce such as fish of the day, free-range duck, grilled beef steaks and lamb shoulder. The wine list provides an extensive selection of South African labels.


Indian influence is strong on the local dining scene (Durban's favourite dish is the "bunny chow" – a hollow bread loaf filled with spicy curry), with multiple Indian restaurants spread out across Durban, peaking in concentration in the Indian quarter. Fine dining establishments dot North Durban, while fabled South African steaks are to be searched for in Florida Road (Durban's thoroughfare and popular entertainment hub) and beyond.
