Go to this restaurant on beautiful days to enjoy the sunshine and wonderful food. The menu is all about African game meat: kudu, springbok, blesbok, crocodile, ostrich, Impala, etc. There are sampler main dishes if you can't decide what to get. I really enjoy the kudu poppers for a starter and the blesbok fajitas (spicy!) for mains. There is usually... More

The menu is good for adventurous eaters and plain-Jane's alike. But whatever you order, come hungry! Our kids were craving a burger, and could not finish half of it. I devoured the chicken tikka masala and thought it was supurb. Others in our party ordered more exotic fare, and were just as pleased. Don't come if you want a rushed... More
