Designed for tourists but not kitch, well worth going. Start the night with a vigorous drumming lesson and then continue with the milticourse African meal with food from all over. Entertainment all night full of energy.

Very nice place to taste all flavours of traditional African dishes. I loved the dresses of the waiters and the music as well. Food was delicious.

This is a great place to spend an evening. There was a 14 serving meal. Good variety to the food with a number of African dishes but far too much food. Staff were efficient and friendly. There was also some entertainment with some audience participation. I thought I was good but the rest of the family advised me to stick... More

This really is a must do night out for any trip to Cape Town. The menu covers the best of the whole continent and the singing, dancing and general entertainment make it a very special evening.

This 18 course extravaganza of lovely African cuisine is not to be missed. We immensely enjoyed all dishes along with the lovely wine they had to offer. To top it off there was African dancing and face painting that was fun to partake in. Overall a great dining experience that we highly recommend and wont break the bank account.

We spent NYE at Golds, the place is in a huge old converted warehouse with sevaral floors. The entertainment was great and the food was too much. Suggest you don't eat much before as you not be able to enjoy the 18 courses. The staff were friendly and service was very good.

The food was wonderful, the music and entertainment was beautiful, and the staff made the night unforgettable for our children. You can't miss this restaurant if you are in Cape Town and have children.

Positives are the drum session beginning the visit - fun and cool. Apart from this, the place is a typical vacationer visiter restaurant and neither the food or the wine or the entertainment is very classy unfortunately. Fun to have been here but we visited so many other nice local restaurants that were so much better. Of course it does... More

Dear Per N We are disappointed that your experience with us did not meet your expectations. We try really hard to provide all our guests with an African dining experience in a short space of time that includes dishes from various countries, djembe drumming and entertainment all inspired by this beautiful continent of ours.

It's mostly tourists that are visiting this place but they cater to them well providing an authentic African experience. We requested the vegetarian option for all 12 dishes served. Everything was delicious and you could request more of anything you wanted. Plus we were treated to African dancing and music while we were there. Just to get a flavor of... More
