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.

This used to be one of our favorite places to eat. The last number of times the service was not as sharp as always. Food has also deteriorated a bit and the decor is starting to show its age.

A very large menu of meats, fish, pastas and salad made for a tricky selection. Very friendly atmosphere with excellent staff and tasty meals. Large portions and excellent meal.

Ribs as tough as leather. Not the quality im used to at Baobab. I have noticed that quality has been compromised on my last two visits.

Baobab has an excellent menu, with a great variety of dishes. The service at both the Wonderboom Junction and Menlyn restaurants are very good, and the waiters are trained well.

My wife and I go to baobab like once a month. We always have a good experience there. The food is always good and we really enjoy the atmosphere. Their biltong and mushroom soup is one of the best soups I have had in a restaurant.
