Thava restaurants are running successfully in Norwood, Johannesburg, Gauteng and Ballito on the KZN North Coast.

Owner Mathew Abraham, who hails from Kerala, was inspired to open Thava to give Jozi residents the opportunity to experence the food from this region. "Kerala is a blend of different cultures and religions - Hindu, Christian and Muslim - and these influences are reflected in the blend of flavours that make the food from this part of the world so divine.My passion for food comes from my mother, who is an incredible cook, and whose recipes and hours of consultation on the dishes via telephone to India have resulted in a menu that is truly divine."

Thava specializes in Indian cuisine and prides itself on its use of the freshest local ingredients, aromatic dishes and, in a first for South Africa, its unique Indian Tapas offering - pure indulgence; perfect for sharing, perfect for experiencing.

Served in tasting portions as a starter, or as a main shared meal, guests can select from a combination of any items straight off the set or daily specials menu.

There is a mouthwatering array of vegetarian, lamb, chicken or seafood dishes to select from, Reflecting the diverse culinary specialities of India, Thava's menu includes fragrant curries, biryanis and stews, spicy Tandoori and Masala dishes, all served with traditional breads, rice dishes and side dishes of freshly prepared chutneys, pickles or vegetables

To complete the meal, dessert comes in the form of heavenly traditional Indian sweet temptations, or your selection of speciality coffees.
