Fordsburg is an area that is predominantly residential but it also has a huge range of mainly Indian restaurants and shops. If it’s authentic Indian cuisine you’re after, this is definitely the place to visit for just that.
Dosa Hut is great – here, their speciality is thin, Indian-style pancakes, which are served with your choice of filling. There is also Bismillah, World of Samoosas and Taste of India, all of which are great spots to grab a bite to eat… why not try them all?
Forsdburg’s Mint Road also plays host to a market on Friday nights – here, you’ll find everything from fake DVDs to sweetmeats and everything in between. You’ll even be able to pop into a barber shop, buy spices to cook with and just enjoy the bustling vibe.

Let's start with what's there- A flea market operated on weekends and comes alive after the sun has set. Variety of grilled foods operated under flea market conditions so forget about hygiene...
You get everything (Food, Spices, Sweets) from Indian subcontinent. Very very lively place. Just park your car and have a walk around the streets and market!

Not a big bazaar by any means, and not much to choose from in terms of merchendise... but it is the only authentic night bazaar in Jhb that we have found. The shops around the bazaar stay open late...
