This is a great restaurant to celebrate special occasions, or just enjoy their reasonable happy hour.

Atmosphere was happy, relaxed, noisy and typical of many South African restaurants. However, the selling of its South African fusion character was over-the-top. The waiters had been schooled to sell South African flavours of which they obviously had no context or upbringing. Major disapointment.

I like to eat at a restaurant that has food I cannot cook at home. This is that kind of restaurant. The food was unique and fun too.

One of my favorite places to eat. Chef Paul has done amazing things to his dishes! The staff are so friendly, helpful, and very accommodating for your every need. They have the best filet loaded with garlic. Do try the stuffed peppadews and Capetown Cucumber Martini! Perfection!

The food was amazing. The sweet potato fries were amazing. Service was good. No real complaints. My drink went completely empty a couple times before a refill so that's why I say only good service. Pricing is a bit excessive, but well worth it for a nice date night.

Loved the food, the manager is awesome. He was so helpful. My friend had a post-wedding dinner here. He made planning it so easy, he took his time and went over every detail.

The service was excellent. It was attentive and well-placed. Our entrees were delicious, ample portions, and eye-pleasing. Drinks from the bar were perfect. This is my new favorite restaurant in Houston!

Went for Mother's Day and they had a fixed menu. We are a vegetarian family and the chef was very accommodating in making our vegetarian dishes even though they were not serving those dishes that evening! The food was very flavorful. We will go again!

Thank DJolly2014
