Tribes is the place to be for a good fillet steak and pap and sauce! The food is fast and always quality and you always leave feeling stuffed! I can never fit in dessert but it always looks like a great selection. I little bit expensive for a normal evening out but lovely for a special treat

I've eaten here about 6 times and not had a poor experience yet. The service has always been excellent (much better than normal in SA). Every meal I have had has been excellent in both quality and quantity. I always look forward to visits here and would recommend it to anyone,

I have been to Tribes a couple of times during the last years. It has always delivered great steaks. The selection is wide of beef as well as on game. The atmosphere is nice with the staff singing and dancing for special occasions (some times it can be a bity noisy if you would like to talk). Service is good.... More

The choice was great - especially on the game front but the steaks were also fabulous. Something for everyone here and all cooked to perfection. In a large complex so sit inside for a more intimate experience. Lots of kids around, hence the noise!

After a long day at work, Tribes is a great place to unwind and enjoy a 300 gram filet steak and veggies. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a meal when they sing Happy Birthday, the authentic song whilst beating the drums will have you bobbing your head and trying to sing along! Save room for dessert as they... More

We have been here many times over the years. We used to go on special occasions, wedding anniversaries, birthdays etc. however, recently it is losing its appeal. First of all I would like to say that the presentation is still up to standard and the food was cooked to order. However, a few small niggles in that the service was... More

Arriving in South Africa, I wanted to try some true African meals. I was quite disappointed with the food. I thought that being in this gorgeous building, with a catchy restaurant name, the food had to be good. We ordered calamari as an appetizer. I think there were 8 small pieces, lathered in some kind of oil and plopped on... More
