“Dinner for 4”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Generally, food very good and service good. I had mussel starter and loved it whilst the prawns were good. Rach had piri-piri livers which she enjoyed. Chicken schnitzel n steak were tender n tasty. Hubby said eisbein was fatty and bland! Choc mousse was good, ice-cream fine. But, the 2 starters were bought to the table at different times and so were the 2 puddings - not good! Prices were reasonable an surroundings pleasant. More lights needed in car-park at back though, with lighted path to front of restaurant.

“improves every time”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went back to the Kraal again as I was in Bulawayo overnight on business. This restaurant continues to get better and better. Richard does very fine job in the kitchen and those Devils on Horseback starters are superb. Puks has the serving staff working very hard and the restaurant seems to be busy with a very good atmosphere most nights.

A real asset to staying in Bulwayo, not to be missed. Keep up the good work

“Best restaurant in Bulawayo”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

always outstanding service and food. brilliant atmosphere, happy staff. Owner managed and run. Lovely view if the rugby field at Busters Sports club with lots of grass for kids to run around and play. In summer sitting outside with the fairy lights is very special. there is sport on the TV over at the ports club if you want to catch up with rots news.

“High-class food in a relaxed setting”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This restaurant seems to be doing a roaring business and it's easy to see why. The Kraal has a fast and friendly service complementing a small but varied menu and has a pleasant setting. The surf & turf options are excellent, and the 400g beef sirloin is simply outstanding. As always in Africa, order the meat 2 shades more raw than what you might be used to in Europe, as everyone takes their grilling very seriously here. A few exotic additions (king prawns in vodka tempura and a wasabi-cream dip for instance) are well-executed and make the culinary experience above average. A large meal for 5 people and ample amounts of (good) wine set us back only about USD 120 - in other words, excellent value. Note that the customers and staff there were a mix of locals and expats, but exclusively white. Whether that's a habitual thing or not I'm unable to say, but it's certainly striking. Anyway, top marks for the food!
