Definitely the best Nachos in town! Great hangout with the girls for an afternoon sundowner. Always had good service and the ambiance has a nice African feel to it.

My travelling party and I were surprised by the warm welcome received at the restaurant in Menlyn.

This was a family reunion! My sister came to visit us from Australia we have seen each other 4 years ago.The food was excellent and different to all the other restaurants foods. Interesting meals! The atmosphere was really nice with soft music in the back ground.

Everything you would expect in a shopping mall restaurant. Smiling staff do make it pleasant, and the outside dining area is nice on a Sunday afternoon. Food is boring and unimaginative.

We had lunch today and were impressed by the service and cleanliness. My husband had the beef schnitzel with fries(which were freshly cut and cooked) and I had the nachos. We were very impressed with the presentation and mine must have been covered with a kilo of cheese!! Too much to eat there but I was able to bring it... More

This is a lovely restaurant, with good food and service. It has atmosphere with a big choice in seating for family or corporate groups and privacy for couples without anyone feeling crowded. A new Baobab branch opened in Wonderboom Junction and its food and service was excellent. Even the presentation of the dishes are 5 star quality. We really enjoyed... More
