The theme is south african dinning with emphasis on the spice called Peli Peli. It is a pepper, but enhances and doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the food or leave your mouth burning. Great presentation of the food, We had 4 different entree's, all were excellent. Very friendly wait staff and definitely coustomer service oriented. We are looking forward to... More

This replacement of GiGi's in The Galleria was a very pleasant surprise. The staff are young, but that does not excuse the service. A customer should not have to ask for more water, but we did. On a POSITIVE side the food was delicious and prepared exactly as described.
