Grab a bunch of good friends and head out to this marvelous African-Earth restaurant that combines true South African food and tribal elements with a view to impress! The portions are of good size and the prices are fair - the lamb curry in an African black pot is a must! Summer nights above city lights is what makes Baobab!

We met for a business meeting and was followed by lunch. My son enjoyed his sushi especially the springbok carpaccio. Service was discreet and attentive. All round a great experience!

Our lunch started with only half our drinks arriving. When we had to ask again for the drinks which hadn't arrived those orders were doubled on our bill. I ordered calamari and prawns which the waiter came to ask if I'd ordered hake and prawns- I then corrected him and lo and behold hake and prawns arrived at the table.... More

The Standard of food has deteriorated drastically and very poor service. Waste of time and Waste of money! Disappointing considering the high standard they use to deliver.

Baobab restaurant has been our choice for many years. The food is always excellent, the atmosphere radient, and access is easy. After the recent refurbishments however, management has changed the menu in that you now only get either a starch or a vegetable and not both. You can add it at an extra cost. As their prices are already high,... More

Took a special someone, both of us were very impressed. Great food, great service. Would recommend getting a outside table, the view is stunning. The place is quite busy over the weekends, would recommend calling early to reserve a table.

Ok, so here is the bottom line. Broad menu selection. Food was very good and nicely prepared and presented. Adequate service. Just ok wine selection. A good stop before or after shopping at the mall.

I am not keen to go to malls for dinner, but this place has a good atmosphere and service is friendly, discreet and fast. Portions are on the generous side and prices are rather reasonable. Presentation is good and food tastes great. Lots of open space makes it perhaps not the ideal romantic eating experience.
