A really warm welcome and such tasty food. Delightful setting right on Manchester Ship Canal. Loved it and would definitely go again if in the area.

Took a family friend here for her 18th birthday.Bongo drums were playing a hen party were up on the dance floor having dance lessons from one of the staff and our meal was perfect.One member of our party tried crocodile,zebra and springbok-in fact we all tasted some of his food-beautiful!! Other dishes such as chicken and fish were also on the menu.
Our friend who was 18 had a bush tucker trail which she loved set up by the staff
Extremely friendly and helpful staff-service was spot on!

Nice surprise my mum and I visited here whilst stopping over in the holiday inn next door. When we arrived we were a bit worried as there didn't seem to be much around for food. Found this just across the water and they squeezed us in even thought they were clearly v busy. All I can say is the food was amazing, the buzz was brilliant, the staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgable,.
We had South African curry, and amazing chocolate cake....we also had a starter which was too much as portions are huge. Very very good.

We ordered a variety of game, pap (with sweet corn), boerewors, and a few other things and were delighted by the taste of South Africa. We dug in there, hands and all, and enjoyed the South African wines on offer. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, watching the ships go by (literally). The staff were very friendly too.

Will be going back for sure. Pricing on the lunch menu was good value.

Perfect birthday meal with friends. Entertainment was fabulous. Food mouth-watering especially the deserts. I was so full should have really shared my desert ! We dined on a Sunday . This is my third time here. First was with family, second was when we were passing by on a bike ride, we stopped for coffee and cake , then again with friends to celebrate a birthday. Staff have always made us feel welcome.
