The dining room's decor is African eclectic, including ample greenier. I ordered the Vegetarian Sampler and it was yummy!

Authentic Ethiopian cuisine in an ethnic jungle house setting with tons of artifacts from the region. Communal food and you have to use your hand! So so good! Definitely not one of those touristy restaurants. One of our best moments in South Africa.

While on a Cape Town city walking tour my guests wanted to have a spot of lunch.
I took them to Madam Taitou where we were met by Helen and Solomon, who showed us to our table and explained the menue to the visitors.
This restaurant is so different from the norm, like a boutique filled with books, old cameras, weapons and other bric & brac.
We ordered 3 vegetairian dishes and 2 meat dishes, food was excellent and service friendly.

This place is so different than any other African restaurant I have ever been. I cannot even try to describe the place here. Food was great, however, no wow-effects. Especially the vegetarian food as well as lamb were excelent. Service was very frendly like in Cape Town always.
