There is live performance on stage during dinner. Nice African music and dance performance. Food is a massive 14 item menu. Try all of them. The chicken Satay is nice. Even the appetiser of bread and a tuna spread is yummy.

This is an amazing place to visit as it is overwhelming once you step inside the restaurant that is spacious and multi level. It can hold large capabilities but is nicely designed to fit in individual diners and larger groups. The entertainers move around and...More

We went in December - excluding drinks, the base cost for the menu for an adult was ZAR335pp. The Drumming before dinner - which is highly recommended - was another ZAR95pp
Is there a restaurant with similar food and entertainment in Johannesburg?
