Its not a Safari - but worth the Trip

We went for drinks and snacks again earlier this month. It's unusual given its African theme and, with the exterior areas having been refurbed around 2 years ago, it really is a fun escape hidden away in Petaling Jaya.

First review this forum after years coming here for dinner....visit for dinner tonight with friends after a long absence. New menu for us but many of the favourites still there like the steak pie which is a firm favourite and a belly busting portion! This time for me went for the ostrich schnitzel which again was a good sized portion... More

This place has been around for some time now and the fact that it has survived this far, it can only means the food kept it sustainable. African food as you can imagine. Not a place when you have beautiful decorated food like those in fine dining outlets. So, let's not compare to anything. While I haven't step foot to... More

The place is very nice, with a realistic tropical setting touch just steps away from the University LRT station. Do NOT trust TripAdvisor's address or directions, as they are dead wrong! The restaurant is located at the PJ palm sports complex so you can even bring the kids for a swim. There are a few bars in the complex. The... More

Out of Africa, a South African themed restaurant and bar is a relaxed option in Petaling Jaya with excellent food and a fun atmosphere. It is no surprise that it is a regular venue for both the South African and Australia/NZ expat clubs. The Zebu steak pie and the bobotie are particularly recommended whilst a good Roast Beef and Yorkshire... More

This is a top place. Its next to a public swimming pool (just 5 ringgits if you fancy a swim) and places some nice quiet chill-out vibes. The beer is cold, the wine is good and the pizzas are excellent. If you've never had halal ostrich Carpaccio before, get yourself down there.

Invited by friends for lunch yesterday. The beers were really fresh and chilled to the right temperature. We had escargots which were nice but could be better. The pies were awesome. The chicken liver delicious. The pizza excellent. The desserts are to die for. Ambience was nice and cozy. Really a great place to chill out.

My family and I ate here for the first time recently. I had a ribeye, my wife tried the lamb shank and my children each had a burger. Everyone was pleased with their choice. It has a very pleasant environment.

If you want to watch rugby with real rugby people enjoying a good beer and some excellent "home cooked" food.... Then this is the place. ... But arrive early if you want a seat
