Superb food. Worth the trip. Highly recommended.

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... read 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

Out Of Africa is the best place to chill out. Food is delicious and service is outstanding. Like to thank the Operation Manager Mr Hendry and his team for the outstanding hospitality. 👍

We have passed by often but never thought of dropping in. Recently, as I looked at kid-friendly places to try instead of our usual haunts, this consistently came up. Overall, a good first visit. The Mauritian crab soup was lovely and creamy though slightly spicy which was not mentioned on the menu. I enjoyed it but would caution giving it... More

Been eating there since they first opened. Quality of food consistent. Staff should be a little more attentive to customers sitting in the air conditioned area. I've had to walked out a few times to get their attention.

We have been there numerous time and the quality of the food is always perfect. Not one dish we have tried was not good!! Service is good and reasonably fast, even if it is crowded. Prices are a bit stiff, but who would not want to pay a bit more for the best steak in town as far as I... More
