Good atmosphere. Great waitstaff. Superb selection of food. It is "fusion" as advertised. Hard to categorize as "African", although one could find these food types in Africa.

The dishes named on the menu are interesting and arouse curiosity of the diner. Looking at the countries of origin and experiencing the blends of flavors in the seasonings makes for enjoyable dining. The meats are the best quality; well-prepared just as you request; and accompanied by unusual vegetable dishes as well. I consider it the best restaurant in the... More

We absolutely loved everything about our experience. As someone else mentioned, it is a little loud, but still such a great environment. The servers are attentive without being overbearing. They went through the menu and explained options for both food and cocktails. I had the filet and scallops special, while my date had the Huguenot filet. We shared the samosas... More

We've eaten several times at this restaurant and we've enjoyed it every time. The food and service has been good. On the pricey side, but nice.

If you are interested in soemthing different, try Peli Peli , it will not disappoint. Great cocktails, fantastic South African flavors - my family has travelled extensively to many parts of RSA- give it a try, it is fantastic. I do not recommend bringing the kids there, although the chicken schnitzel is very pkain in flavor but absolutely delicious!

We visited Peli Peli a year ago or so, and the experience was not memorable. We did not return. Recently, several of my friends raved about the restaurant, so we decided on giving it another try. And we were pleasantly surprised. Service was very good, the food was memorable, and it is a restaurant we will return to visit eagerly.

Attentive service and lively atmosphere. Menu mostly meats. Went with S. African friend who was impressed with seeing her national dishes on the menu, but not on the execution. Portions were on the small size considering the high prices. Meats and fish too salty.
