We have been here about half a dozen times. We always love the setting overlooking the canal and the decor is very pleasing to the eye. But of course we love the food. We took my daughter for the first time. She loved it too. We especially like the game that comes with any of four accompaniments including wedges, salad,... More

Went with family to celebrate a birthday, walked in to the African drums playing, great decor and ambience. Food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing, most of our party had a selection of game and all enjoyed it. I had the Jabula chicken which had the most amazing sauce I have ever tasted. The cheesy potato mash was to die... More

After a go on the bongos and learning a bit of south african we will... More

We enjoyed the Ultimate Platter. Its a sharing meal with tasters of all sorts of game and stews. The restaurant was warm and inviting. The atmosphere was just right with the background music at just the right level to create the SA ambiance but not to drown out conversation. The staff were attentive and friendly. The young girl behind the... More

I have never been to South Africa or eaten South African food before, so when Living Social came up with an offer for a sharing meal, we went prepared for anything. It was a really good, all round experience. The decor and the music were good, the food was wonderful and the staff were so friendly. There was no rush... More

Bit of a late review but this restaurant has a lot to offer. Great for a special birthday surprise or just a couples meal. Food is very tasty and they have great authentic South African dishes. I went for the pot chicken which was very good. Unfortunately I had no room for desert. will definitely return.

We visited today for lunch, using a Living Social voucher. It was lovely to sit at a window table watching the water, birds and changeable weather whilst waiting with anticipation for our food. We were certainly not disappointed. We had the Game Platter, consisting of three courses, each one cooked to perfection and delicious. The game meats were crocodile, ostrich... More
