Put simply, they don't seem to understand the product that they are selling. There's no authenticity to the South African experience that one receives! Having gone there with my girlfriend I was hoping for a nice romantic dinner which would be followed by a relaxing glass of wine to top it all off. However this was not the case, having had to make my reservation well in advance the service we received was appalling to say the least. The food we got was rather distasteful and seemed to be old, it lacked the burst of flavour one desires when having a genuine South African meal, especially considering the high price we had paid for it! Having had completed our meal we were rushed to finish and leave as we were only allowed to stay there for two hours, even though there seemed to be free seats around us. In whole, I wouldn't recommend going there and one should check other South African restaurants in the area as I've heard that there are rather delightful and highly recommended ones around.
