Had a great meal here, great service (very friendly), surroundings where very pleasant. All in all - I will come back.
The foods not overly exotic - and has some interesting twists on flavours - well done!!! Great stuff.

I can not say enough about how good this restaurant is. The decor is fun, the garden is lovely, the staff is wonderful. The food was amazing! We had an eggroll stuffed with goat cheese, Kudu, Springbok, delicious salad, vegetables, sauces and, for dessert, a sinful pudding cake and wicked spiked coffees. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting good food, nice atmosphere, fair prices, and a break from all the tourists!

Simply beautiful! Everything - food, service, music, decor... Place is small, cosy and nicely decorated.
As for food - don't let simplistic-looking menu deceive you! Ask waiter's advise and go for African Adventure - you won't be disappointed! Kudu grill was tender, mouth-watering and flavorful. Slightly spicy, just to the point of noticing.
I started with broccoli soup - and it was just haven! With a nice touch of nutmeg and smoky flavor... Beautiful!
And, as I learned - the place is chef-owned and operated.

You can expect to get the full treat here: tasty and authentic african cuisine, friendly service and lovely atmosphere. We had a fantastic dinner at Tjing Tjing - starting with the warm welcome from the staff. The service was very friendly and attentive yet still very discreet - just perfect for a romantic dinner! The portions served are very generous and most of all super tasty. Nothing left to desire...

This little gem is well worth a visit if you enjoy places built on passion. The food was quite excellent, particularly the dessert, a delicious Malva pudding with Amarula. The decor is lovely and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again, particularly in the summer for the barbecues.
