“What an excellent surprise to find this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Undoubtedly the best game meat and steaks around. The staff were amazing; very helpful and attentive. Portions are well portioned to price. Good wines and champagne available. There is even a very good vegetarian option. The menu is good with a small enough selection to not make you wonder if the food will come out a freezer to be quickly prepared for service. This outshines Moyo anytime!

“Great restaurant, some of the best ostrich steaks around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a steakhouse far away from the more well known restaurants in the northern suburbs, but easily competes with them in terms of quality and service.

The ostrich steaks are particularity good and worth a try.

“Every visit....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Every visit to Johannesburg entails a dinner at Tribes! The best Steaks in Africa! The service is always friendly, courteous with well trained staff. The meal is in the upper costs but well worth every penny.

Always a pleasure to have dinner at Tribes. The food is excellent. The ambience is great. The service is excellent. What more do you need - the steak is to die for and the wine is endless. They realy have a great menu and a winning restaurant. Visit them it is worth it!!!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Tribes is contained within The Emperor's Palace complex in Kempton which, when I visited on a Tuesday evening in January, was very busy. Nevertheless my colleague and I were given a choice of an inside or outside table, choosing the former. The atmosphere was noisy, but this was the noise of lots of people enjoying their evening out and that's always a good sign of things to come. Sure enough my meal, steak with chips, was delicious and the service was very good.
The portions are very generous to such an extent that I avoided a starter and couldn't manage a dessert, as did my colleague.
