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

Had a great meal here, great service (very friendly), surroundings where very pleasant. All in all - I will come back. The foods not overly exotic - and has some interesting twists on flavours - well done!!! Great stuff.

I can not say enough about how good this restaurant is. The decor is fun, the garden is lovely, the staff is wonderful. The food was amazing! We had an eggroll stuffed with goat cheese, Kudu, Springbok, delicious salad, vegetables, sauces and, for dessert, a sinful pudding cake and wicked spiked coffees. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting... More

Simply beautiful! Everything - food, service, music, decor... Place is small, cosy and nicely decorated. As for food - don't let simplistic-looking menu deceive you! Ask waiter's advise and go for African Adventure - you won't be disappointed! Kudu grill was tender, mouth-watering and flavorful. Slightly spicy, just to the point of noticing. I started with broccoli soup - and... More

You can expect to get the full treat here: tasty and authentic african cuisine, friendly service and lovely atmosphere. We had a fantastic dinner at Tjing Tjing - starting with the warm welcome from the staff. The service was very friendly and attentive yet still very discreet - just perfect for a romantic dinner! The portions served are very generous... More

This little gem is well worth a visit if you enjoy places built on passion. The food was quite excellent, particularly the dessert, a delicious Malva pudding with Amarula. The decor is lovely and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again, particularly in the summer for the barbecues.

Very friendly staff and helpful staff. The portions are generous and absolutely delicious. We've been here a couple of times now and it has become one of our top #3 resturants in Amsterdam.
