“bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I think for the price they charge the service the waitors offer should be better. You have to ask for things a few times. I also know if you are a bigger group the service is better. When I visited with my family, the service was pathetic, my young sons vowed to never go to Moyos again

“African food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We ate at Moyo for Mother's day last year and were pleasantly surprised. There were endless choices in the buffet from more traditional African 'samp and beans' to 'boerewors (spiced sausage) and more global food choices. There was an ample selection of local wine that was reasonably priced. The portion sizes are good, especially when you opt for the buffet where you can decide on your portion size. The ambience is unbeatable with live music and a face-painter who allows you to choose a suitable design to be painted with. There is also a gift shop where you can purchase items such as tagine pots to recreate the experience at home. The setting is perfect in summer where you can dine outside with the view of the lake or even in winter where you are provided with gas lamp heaters to take the chill out of the air. Moyo is an authentic African cuisine dining experience with excellent entertainment and ambience
