You wouldn't expect to find such a unique gem in a strip mall, especially surrounded by chain restaurants Orange County is so well know for. I have gone here four times (lunch and dinner), and every time received friendly service, and the food never disappoints. For those looking for a little adventure outside of your normal burgers & fries and... More

Mozambique Peri Peri, in Newpor Bluffs, is a great alternative for lunch or a quick cafe-style dinner. You can eat in; or take out. The food is really interesting - shrimp, chicken and sausage plates, seasoned with south- East African spices. It's like of like tomato-based Indian spicing but minus the fat. The meats are grilled and either on a... More

Excellent all-around restaurant! Everyone can find something they will enjoy from steaks, fish and chicken to vegetarian options. Meals are usually served mildly spiced and are served on proper ceramic dishes with metallic cutlery; not paper and plastic. For the braver souls, there's a super-hot green salsa available by self-service next to the drink station. If you are burned out... More

I am unfamiliar with South African cuisine and since I do not care for spicy food, this did not appeal to me.

We hosted a group of 15 diners here two weeks ago. No one knew what to expect this being touted as a South African restaurant. They do offer two levels of seasoning, extreme and mild. I ordered the Sea Bass with the spicier seasoning. I did make one mistake, I ordered the small portion. I have three recommendations: 1. Get... More

Stumbled across this restaurant at The Bluff by accident, but since it met my no-wheat requirement, decided to give it a try. I ate the steak, prawn and chicken platter. Holy smokes! THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE. The steak was the best, and just a flat iron... Who would have thought that cut could be so moist? It was cooked perfectly,... More

So often we are looking for a restaurant with a different twist in taste. Mozambique Peri Prei offers exactly this at great prices. Most of the menu is under $15. With African roots the main menu offers chicken, steak and seafood. Plus, African Roti Wraps (burritos like), sandwiches and salads. There are a few curry dishes, too. Most of the... More
