“Hip vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We went here last night, the food was really tasty, we both had chicken kebab, it came with a lot of dips chips and salad. The service was quick which is rare here the food wasn't expensive but the alcohol was, the meal came to 3630rps for 2 spirits with mixer, 2 lion beers and the food. Its a shisha bar as well so people were on mats smoking that, which I've never seen before it smelt nice, they did apple, grape or strawberry.

“Good tunes, nice vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Nice tunes - a deep house set if I recall - volume not overpowering, perfect for chilling out.

Food quite fresh and good. Lounges nice and comfortable, inside house had a cool vibe (for those considering staying over).

Beer a little more pricey (250R/can rather than 300R/big bottle as average) but would visit again.

“Middle Eastern Mezzé”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

We had drinks & dinner at the Pink Elephant last night. The Mojitios were delicious. We had an Arabic mixed grill for 2 served with dips, pitta, salad and chips. There was plenty for 2 people and very tasty. The meat was perfectly cooked. There's a nice atmosphere with big cushioned seating areas. Service was good, would definitely recommend.

“A very chilled place with good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

You sit on cushions by a small table. The sun goes down but riches the tables until late afternoon so you fill very cosy. The food was ok and the music played in the background builds a nice atmosphere. Staff was very friendly, playing guitar and stroking the dogs who seemed to be well looked after. All above make the place very friendly and welcoming.

“Could have been four star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Chilled out hippy vibe. In one corner folk singing with guitar whilst on the bar, a Sonos sound system pumping out deep house. I sampled the tuna wrap, tasty after a day spent on the beech, the Sri Lankan curry as good as ever. The issue is that the lounge seats are very dirty (understandably as people relax on these and drop food), so the easy answer is to clean these regularly.
