I have had lunch and dinner at Peli Peli many times, as well as a group luncheon in their private dining room. This last visit was with a luncheon for a group of 19 women. This last luncheon was the second in a week at this restaurant with the same waitress, Nina for both luncheons. She was very efficient and... More

Peli Peli is a surprise in the Vintage shopping centre. I was staying at the Elements Westin in Vintage Park and we chose this restaurant. Interior is pleasantly dramatic. The menu is varied but features seafood and steak. I chose the seafood trio --sea bass, shrimp and scallops --all cooked to perfection and their lemon sauce truly is to die... More

We have wanted to try this restaurant for some time and went on Friday for lunch. The food was fabulous and our server, Tiffany W, was great. She gave us a perfect briefing on the restaurant philosophy and chef's background. Tiffany's recommendations were superb. Definitely on the list. Sooo looking forward to the opening of the Galleria restaurant.

My wife and I visited on a Thursday night (with reservations) and ate a tasty meal. The food was flavorful, cooked perfectly, and lived up to the restaurant's rather high expectations set from so many other reviewers. We found an excellent wine to accompany the meal (2008 Meerlust Rubicon) and appreciated our server's sales pitch for the authentic South African... More

I'll start this review by describing my dining experience at Peli Peli with one word: Monumental. I never thought in my wildest dreams that a meal could change my life for the better, because honestly, who could imagine a meal generating so much flavor that it would shock your taste buds? I'll be the first to admit that I never... More

We had a wonderful experience taking the Chef's Tour and Nina was spot on in her recommendation. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. We can't wait to go do it again.
