A fun-filled eating experience with energetic entertainment.

Gold is quite unique - best to go in a group. The Industrial Chic premises are huge, semi-open-plan ,with stairs connecting the different levels. Roving teams of dancers, drummers and musicians entertain the guests at intervals during the set-menu African feast. The costumes and decor are excellent... read more

This was easily one of the best meals and experiences that I have EVER had in Cape Town, which (considering I live here) is no easy feat. The welcome, the drumming, the PHENOMENAL food, the atmosphere, the interactive entertainment - EVERYTHING was so amazing. I have been raving about it to friends and family ever since and can only give... More

I was luckily enough to be invited to a private tasting of the new winter menu recently and wasn't disappointed. Have been to GOLD on a number of occasions previously for Birthday Party and a pre wedding dinner for an overseas family member. The new menu takes their African cuisine to a new level. Exciting tastes and visually very pleasing.... More

Food was very good and great choices. We had different platters of African dishes. During the courses the restaurant staff and performers sings and dances. The costumes are colourful. Please remember to bring your camera. The restaurant is large and lots of stairs. Local wine and drinks are not too expensive. This would be a great evening for a group... More

This restaurant was a very good place to sample south african food. They also featured live entertainment which was excellent. Several courses were served which for us was a lot of food. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers) had a super fun night! We absolutely enjoyed the entertainment. The restaurant is nicely decorated inside and all the staff is dressed the part. We started with the drumming session and I think that is totally worth it. It was so fun to learn and play the beats on the drums.... More

This place has it all, singing, dancing, drumming, face paint, and great atmosphere. We had the set menu, which was all that was available at the time, so that meant missing out on a few items due to dietary requirements. Overall we had a great night and would happily go back again
