Booked for a quiet Monday evening for 5 people. Long time since I'd been there and I was looking forward to a repeat of a steak that I'd had some years ago. Restaurant wasn't busy and the initial service was good but later we struggled to get attention. the chairs are really uncomfortable so perhaps they don't want you to... More

We've been eating at Tango's for many years, last night we went with five friends and had the most awful meal, service ever. Out of six orders only one was correct. One guest had to wait longer than the others (which was a long wait in itself) because he was told his order had been given to someone else. I... More

I visited Tango's with my wife and daughter tonight. It was good, but there are a lot they can improve on. The service was friendly, but a bit slow and inattentive. The food was good, and the price was great! The decor is from a previous decade and needs a re-think. There was a fireplace and that was great. It... More

No booking recorded 10 guests for my birthday dreadful service and food. Complained to Manager for the evening. Still waiting for an apology or explanation as is one of our normal casual early supper eateries in the Constantia Tokai area. It was suprising and not up to the usual standard. Maybe a chef or change of managment. Disappointing.

I keep saying the same thing but it simply is a good value restaurant. Do huge takeaway trade which shows the faith locals have in their meals. I usually choose the 600g ribs with veges for R99. Can barely finish the meal. Coffee could def be improved but along with drinks is very inexpensive. Glass of wine R22! Many diners... More

Restaurant decor is dated! Poor service. We had to wait very long for our food. Our steaks were rare and we ordered medium steaks. The restrooms are in a bad condition. We were offered hot chips instead of the usual garlic pita bread when we complained about the long wait for our food. I ordered a take away steak with... More

Chose the 'staff pizza' on our last visit. Was impressed with it and thanked the pizza chef 'Constance'. Wife had te rump steak which she rated highly albeit slightly over-done. Prices have crept up a bit since August, but still great value esp for early diners before 6.45pm.

As this place is very close to our home we have visited it quite often. They offer very tasty and reasonably priced meals, of both meat and fish. We usually have the fresh fish or calamari. Tangos also offer an early bird menu, which is very good too. The vibe is good and as it isn't a huge venue it... More
