We had dinner here and my husband, who is not normally very adventurous when it comes to dining choices, had the tasting plate with a number of different meats on it. He loved it. I just had a steak and it was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend.

I had steak, pap and sauce. Not satisfied with the steak because my steak was full of tendons and a bit chewy. Service could be much improve. I love the atmosphere and the comfortable chairs.

The decoration is inspired in African tribes, easy to guess by the name of this restaurant. One of the best steakhouse I have been. Everything was just perfect. Although they serve exotic meat like ostrich and kudu, they have regular cow steak too and it is really good.

Tribes is an unusual restaurant in that you can order several different types of game from Ostrich to Kudu individually or as a sampler. Food is good. Entrtainment with waitstaff playing instruments and singing.

Went here with a work colleague at he was staying at the hotel near by. I wanted to give him a delicious steak and I was successful - the meat was very good. The waiter was a bit pushy with the wine and tried to get us a bottle when all we wanted was a glass. Sit "outside" and you... More

Great offering of juicy steaks are a highlight on the menu. Accompagnements are adequate rather than great. Drinks are good and the chocolate mousse is quite a feast when it comes to pudding. Service is a little hit and miss depending on which waiter serves you. Overall if you want meat then this is the place to go for in... More

Really lovely restaurant with friendly staff and management. Food to a high standard although pricey. Wine prices rather high compared to other restaurants.Ambiance and decor a delight. Although in a casino resort one feels outdoors. Highly recommend their steaks.

Good food and fast service. Very welcoming and the hosts appreciate your custom. Grilled meat is the speciality and it is prepared exactly to your specification. We found it a bit noisy and boisterous inside but the tables outside provided the passing parade of visitors to Emporers Palace. This is not for a romantic candlelight dinner but fits with the...
