We visited Tjing Tjing to try their "Braai" (BBQ) menu with some friends new to South African food. Since it was a group type dinner it was served as a buffet meal. For starters we were offered a plate of samosas, some vegetarian and some beef, served with some chutney. As a samosa lover I found both varieties very tasty,... More

The food here was excellent, imaginative, and very generous portions. Cannot fault the service either, nor the interesting decor. This will appeal to both afficionados of South African cuisine, and also complete beginners. The only downside is that you won't be able to try all of the difference dishes you'd like to try, unless you're living in Amsterdam, and can... More

We loved it! The service and welcome was impeccable, friendly and courteous and the waiter was more than helpful in guiding us throught he different options. The restaurant is extremely cosy and it felt like we were eating in someones large living room rather than in a restaurant. even the smell of the place reminded us of the holidays! The... More

Fancied something a bit different, and as we had never been to a South African restaurant before and this place was near our hotel, thought we would give it a try. Friendly welcome by the waiter who introduced us to the chef as we passed the kitchen. Cosy dining area with some tunes playing that I haven't heard in years... More

I went there last night with two friends who've been to South Africa in 2008. It was difficult to choose between all the delicious dishes, so we chose two mixed grill's and a bobotie. For a starter, it was suggested to take the starter platter which had small pieces of most of the starters. Good decision! Samoosas, spring rolls, fish... More
