Here for business and I'm never optimistic about finding an interesting meal in Houston. Tex-Mex or Waffle House seem to be the choices. So was thrilled to find this gem serving South African food. Had the Kingklip fish (never heard of it before) with baby...More

We have dined here many times. Although the men usually like the steak, I prefer the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer for my meal. Must get the large Peli Peli special sharable appetizer for the group as it offers a bit of different options for everyone...More

They do. The Bobotie is outstanding and it's Curried Boca, Carrots, pastry top, and mango chutney. Also, the staff will remove meat from any fish and add extra veggies if you ask.
