It is a very small place so you better make a reservation when you visit. The food is very good and original. The menu is tapas style but the food is a mixture of African and Asian, a good combination.

Was expecting great - got some great, some okay and some not okay. The latter was the wine and the prices. Wines dull and don't serve day old by the glass. Service great! A few dishes really lovely flavour combinations. But some a tad boring and very over priced.

Packed together and the food was certainly not worth the cost. Wine they recommended was disappointing and we like our wine. Noisy and not memorable

This place was was recommended by a couple who we got talking to in a bar the night before, they could not sing it's praises any more, so we went along. It looks are deceiving, when you go in the little outside area is lit up with lights and the inside dining area is like sitting in the owners front room. The menu is tapas style with so much to choose from. We ordered 10 different dishes and weren't disappointed.! Each and every one was a taste sensation, I have eaten 'street food' (good quality local dishes) in many countries and this was deliciously homemade. Each dish was beautifully presented.
The home made lemonade was refreshing and the speciality cocktails were a dream!
I even made room for a pudding! Crepes with homemade ice cream.
If you are after plush surroundings then this isn't the place for you, if you are after a quirky experience which makes you feel lucky to experience then it's for you.
Remember it's cash only.

Came here with a group of friends, beautiful food especially the bobotie.
Yes, it is a little more expensive than some other places but well worth it. Service good, met the owner at the end of our meal, impressive knowledgeable lady
