We were recommended this place by our tour guide and it didn't let us down We tried a couple of the starters which were lovely (chicken liver and one of the sausage ones) Didn't need a starter though as we couldn't finish our mains and there was no room for desserts which looked great Waiter really friendly If you are...

Had a business dinner early Sept whilst visiting SA. Decor is a bit touristy/tacky but considering it's within a casino complex, no surprises. The place was about 1/3 full and echoed quite a bit - but this was an advantage later. Food looked pretty good, with plenty of simple choices available too. We went primarily for the game platter (ostrich/warthog/kudu/impala).... More

Have had good experiences at Tribes in the past but.........a recent visit was most disappointing! I personally called at the restaurant to make a booking and selected a table in a specific area " boma" but when we arrived the table had been allocated to someone else? From then on things went downhill. The service was almost non-existent. There were... More

Last time I was at tribes was on my trip in 2011 and I can say that my meal this evening was just as good as it was then. The steak was cooked perfectly and the extra sauces provided make for an extraordinary meal. My waiter was attentive and made the overall experience fantastic.

My husband and I had an overnight stay at the Emperors Palace complex and had been advised about the wonderful steaks we could order here. We were definitely not disappointed. I had the most superbly cooked fillet and my husband had a rib eye on the bone which was magnificent. The service was very attentive, a good selection of beers... More

This restaurant is in the Emperors palace complex. The service is very good and the menu offer a lot of choices. The meat is well cooked and the sides dishes are also good.

The place was recommanded by the hotel. Let's be clear: if you like nice and quiet places, avoid absolutely this emperor palace mall and its restaruants ... Well, i was there, so no choice. I picked up the one which seemed to be a bit more local. Noisy as a mall can be, as a big restruant in a mall... More

I go there often because of its Africa look and atmosphere. The food is excellent. Priced a bit on the high side but worth the money.
