Food was ok but the energy makes it worth it to come anyway. We sat by the window watching people bungee over the orlando towers while having so food and drinks and listening to 90's r&b. Fun way to spend an afternoon.

I visited Chaf Pozi with a group of people a few days ago for lunch. The atmosphere was electrifying, the food very basic but very well prepared, staff and management very friendly and helpful. A cool place to unwind after bungee jumping off the Orlando Towers! For visitors to South Africa - to truly experience urban South African warmth and... More

Loved all of it and the jump of the towers was brilliant. A true South African experience. Every South African and tourist must go there for the adventure and the excellent food.

I do like this place, its a great place to wile away the afternoon with a few drinks, watching people jump from the towers and listen to some cool, if overly loud, beats. However, our meal (group of six, platters of meat and sides), was forgotten for over 2 hours and what we got was cold and not what we... More

Visited Chaf Pozi and it was such a great experience, from the warm welcome to some great music followed by a hearty lunch and drinks! This is for sure a must visit! :)

My wife and I and a group of friends visited Chaf Pozi in Soweto for lunch on Saturday and stayed for the whole afternoon. The service was great and the food was even better. Short rib, lamb chops, boerewors, chicken, pap, chakalaka, pumpkin, spinach, coleslaw and gravy - all good. Then a group of incredible dancers arrived and thoroughly entertained... More

If you don't look like you are from a township or enjoy club volume township tunes don't bother. You will be forgotten about and may EVENTALLY get the food you ordered. Perhaps drinking gets you more attention. Who know?

Good Morning I really do apologise for the poor experience that you had at Chaf Pozi. It really is not what we want our guests to experience and i do believe that it is a rare occurrence. Unfortunately we had a group of 250 ladies all arrive at the same time and it led to a big rush as I'm... More

Went to Chaf Pozi for a get-together with friends. The set up is really super, a cross cultural visit second to none. The food was excellent, resident DJ kept everyone dancing and maniacs jumping off the Orlando Towers kept us riverted! Will defnitely be back!
