We had a great and very fulfilling meal here. The cornbread was so good, we didn't even understand how. I've never seen my friend eat more.

This restaurant just amazing: * Very nice food * Friendly staff * Great music * Cozy location Just remember to bring enough cash they don't take credit cards. We payed around R250 per person. But we didn't have any wine.

Sadly it is quite difficult to find, especially at night, but do persevere this restaurant is well worth the effort. It has a lovely atmosphere, great African food, wonderful staff and a slightly crazy owner. What more could you ask!?
