“Fantastic African evening!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Gold was recommended to us and we had a fantastic time here! The set menu offers a taste of various dishes from across Africa, the food was delicious and just kept coming. While we ate there were a number of performances with drums, singing and dancing which were great fun and got the audience involved. A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

“Fun with food and entertainment!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable evening at Golds Restaurant! The interactive drum class was so much fun! The food was good and the servers were pleasant. The entertainment continues at different times throughout the meal and was excellent. The singing, dancing and costumes are amazing! Some courses of the meal (14) were so good that we could have easily eaten more!!! Definitely a must visit while in Capetown!

“Opulent African restaurant”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

They certainly lived up to their "opulent" name. What a fantastic find. Anyone wanting authentic African cuisine in a lovely setting with friendly and efficient staff, this is the place to go!

“Very touristy but enjoyable”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Enjoyed the fun drumming session at the start of the evening. Staff very welcoming & friendly. Food ok but you go here for the entertainment. It is a real tourist trap rather than feeling authentic but still a fun evening
