Went with friends on a Thursday night. The waitstaff while very friendly, was over whelmed. Granted the place was pretty full but still, a 15 minute wait for the menu ??
The peanut soup was above average. The ribs and the rest of the food we felt was way over priced, this was based on the quality which was average,or below ( the food was not very authenic). The quantity of food served was MEAGER. For example, the lamb stew was lamb stew in name only, very small portion and hardly any lamb.
The only thing one could taste in the Peri Peri Shrimp (and there was not a lot of shrimp) was the
Peri Peri. Peri Peri should be used to lend heat and flavor to a dish, you do not dump the whole bottle in and hope for the best. For what they charged the portions should have been larger, and we are not big eaters.
The cocktails, Manhattan and a Tanguray Martini tasted watered down.
We recognize we are in a resort area, and most restuarant have to make most of their profit in a small window of time, BUT PLEASE, let the customer leave your place of business feeling he or she received good value for the money spent. We did not feel this at Karoo.
