The ambience here for a Monday Lunch was friendly. A ladies day out provided a low cost special of the day. We chose the chicken and salad - a well presented meal promptly served. The marinated chicken fillets were very tasty along with the colourful salad. Value for money was there as a drink was also included for this lunch time special.
The service was friendly and a follow up to the table upon completion was well received. A great atmosphere in an easy location. Would definitely return here to dine on the unique cuisine available.

This was our third visit to the restaurant since it opened and it continues to improve. When it first opened the staff were still getting the hang of things, but they now have the right level of experienced staff who provide great service but aren't too intrusive. Before dinner we enjoyed a glass of wine in the bar area which feels cosy and intimate - but would be good for a larger group too. We started with the boerewors (beef) sausage rolls served with a tasty chutney - very nice. Then we had fantastic fillet steak, cooked exactly as described in the menu, served with beautiful mashed potatoes and delightful monkey gland sauce! Love the range of South African wines and spirits available. Overall very nice decor, great food and welcoming staff...what more do you need?

After reading some of the reviews, we were a bit dubious; however it turned out to be the perfect choice. The skewered meat was delicious ( go hungry!) as were the fish and chicken dishes. The sticky toffee pudding dessert was absolutely 'to die for'. The service could not be faulted- just the right balance of checking everything was ok and leaving us alone to enjoy the food and company.
The chairs were fine too. I must admit it was noisy but this is a small niggle in the overall scheme of things.

After reading the mixed reviews we decided to try for ourselves. We were unable to get a booking at the Hillarys Hippo Creek (our fault, last minute effort on a Saturday to make the booking) so instead we decided to try the Karawara restaurant. Service was very good. We were frequently checked on without it being annoying. My husband was promptly offered another beer when his glass was empty. We both had the rump on skewer and for an extra $1 the side salad. Our 4 year old daughter enjoyed her meal from the kids menu. Food was very nice. Not cheap, but nothing is in Perth. We both thought it was very good value for money. Tender rump, nice sauce. Most impressed with the staff. Attentive and clearly wanting to make certain we were enjoying the food. Upon paying the waitress again asked if we enjoyed our meal and the manager also approached us and asked the same. We both thought they have been given some poor reviews and are making efforts to improve. Green metal chairs need to be changed over for something more comfy. We will certain return.

Lunch deals are good value. Not one for the vegetarians. Monkey gland sauce is tang-tastic. African large resturant.
