Rainbow Restaurant & Jazz Club

Sundays see the restaurant at its busiest, guests enjoying unpretentious local fare and listening to live jazz, whose sounds have been filling the restaurant's air since 1981. See their website for show schedules. Located inland from Durban proper.


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.
