I treated my mom to a surprise 60th birthday lunch at the Zoo Lake Moyo and she LOVED it (so did dad, my husband and I!) The restaurant is beautifully decorated in natural solid wood and appears to have been built into the trees themselves! The waitrons went over and above the call of duty by ensuring that the cake was brought out on time and with the necessary pomp and ceremony and huge attentiveness to the guest of honour. Mom was in fact serenaded with fantastically tuned Birthday song renditions by both the entire Moyo team and the Afro-haired trio of beautiful singers! She truly felt like the Queen that she is. Being vegetarian, we were a bit sceptical about the authentic 'African' menu design but thoroughly enjoyed the spread of flatbreads, cheese & onion and potato & pea samoosas, Mpumalanga salad, vegetable tagine and lentil curry! Granted that was pretty much all the vegetarian dishes they had on their menu but each one was truly packed with great flavour! The pretty face painting experience rounded off a wonderfully enjoyable afternoon! We'll definitely be back for more!

We got in late, walked to Moyo's, and they put all 19 of us in a private area WAAAYYYY down in the naturally excavated cavern under the restaurant. Very exotic....Definitely a dining experience all our group will remember. Our waiter suggested for starters that we allow them to bring out platters of indigenous foods for the whole table......don't miss this! Menu was extraordinary and we had a special "first night" in South Africa. Total bill, including some wine for the 11 adults, was approx. $386, an average of about $20 per person. We thought it was a good value considering the ambience and quality of food.

Had dinner here on a Sunday night in July. Service was slow. I know that the standard isn't the same everywhere, but this is a large busy restaurant and it was difficult to get anyone's attention during the dinner service. Well just to get someone to take our order was an ordeal in itself. The food was not great either. Some of the dishes came out room temp. I guess they sat out in the kitchen before someone decided to bring them out to us.
