The menu highlighted different specialties from all over Africa. It was all delicious, because it was a set menu you are able to try a variety of items that you may not order otherwise. Very good service and the show was highly enjoyable. Recommend a visit, be sure to make a reservation.

We are local Capetonians, and a friend of ours booked at Gold. On arrival we were dismayed to see 2 tour buses disembarking - but our fears were soon laid to rest. The layout over 3 floors, with amazing decor spreads the tourists amount the locals - and what a lovely evening. The food is tasty and authentic African -... More

Initially expecting a tourist type of venue, I was very positively surprised by the genuine approach. Quality food and wine, very good show and service. A truly enjoyable evening. It did not feel like this was a place with a lot of tour buses. Of course there were groups but also individuals and smaller diners. Excellent value for money and... More

The decor is absolutely fantastic (a decorator's dream, really!), the food is both interesting and delicious (from all over the continent), and the entertainment is great (we heard several grouops). Gold Restaurant provided a delightful evening, one that we will remember for a long time.

You must try the free drum lessons at Golds. Arrive by 6:00 and you are given a drum of your own, step by step lessons, and a lot of laughs. Food is good and you get a wide variety of African dishes to choose from.

Great place to try in CT. Variety in food and number of dishes to taste. Caters well for vegetarians. Entertainment is great fun, some audience participation. Restaurant decor is very African as are all the staff. Go with an appetite.

We were looking for an evening of genuine African cuisine. We were most definitely not disappointed. Many dishes from different African countries were available. All were really great. The waitress was very knowledgeable and knew her menu well. We were also treated to some really good dancing which made visiting this restaurant more than just a dining experience. It is... More

Aften two exciting weeks in South Africa we went for drums and dinner at GOLD Restaurant on our last evening. We expected to begin with a drum-show before dinner, but soon learned, that we ourselves should do the drumming. With instructions of course.. This was great fun and a really good way to begin..! The menu was the same for... More

Probably more of a tourist destination than something the locals go to but it offers a good selection of local dishes and authentic cuisine and an interesting building and layout wiht lots of entertainment. The dancers, drummers and staff were all excellent and too great care of us. We had a fun evening out
