Suncoast, Hotels and Entertainment is billed as one of Durban’s hottest destinations right now, and the range of new eateries is one of the reasons.

The 10 new restaurants range from Italian, Mexican and Indian cuisine. Here's a guide of the eateries you should visit. 

Greek

Mythos: Whether it's the delicious Greek menu or their vibey ambience, Mythos mixes high-end dining with a laid back chill. 

Don't be surprised if you hear a few plates breaking (Greeks view this as good luck). Or if you see waiters dancing arm in arm around the restaurant, it's all part of the authentic Greek experience.

The menu celebrates Greek cuisine, with mezze platters, signature Kleftiko(lamb shank) and baklava cheesecake on the menu. 

Mythos will host Greek evenings once a month.

Indian

Roti &Chai: It's been a good year for this fast food joint. Sandesh Rampersad and his team, whose naan wraps were quite the attraction at various Durban markets, opened their branch on Florida Road earlier this year. 

They have since opened in Suncoast.

“We have been quite busy since our Suncoast opening. Many people didn't know about us and are intrigued by our offerings. 

So, it's going to be great to share our meals with more people,” he said.

Popular meals include paneer tikka masala naan wrap, filled with spicy marinated paneer, green peppers, onion and salad, or their signature tandoori chicken naan wrap. Call 061 959 6975.
