We have been going to Peli Peli since it's opening and have enjoyed every meal. The menu is varied and the seasonings and sauces are great additions to each meal. I have sampled a number of entrees, with my favorites the garlic steak, Madagascar Peppercorn Steak, Chicken Schnitzel and the Sea Bass. The Mango Slaw and Couscous are excellent and unique sides. The wine list offers a number of good selections, including the excellent South Africa wines.

Twice we have had a special treat with Chef Paul stopping by our table and sitting down for a conversation. The waitstaff are well informed and very friendly. I learned in our last visit that the staff have three weeks of training before they wait on tables; the training investment shows. If you are in the area, give Peli Peli a try.

We love this restaurant. The food has such an intense flavor and just a bit spicy. Really good. Also, Chef Paul will come to your table and check on you personally to ensure you are having a good experience.

Went to Peli Peli with friends for the Monday Night special dinner -- a delectable garlic steak on a bed of spinach with sautéed cubed potatoes. The steak was outstanding, and the special included a glass of wine and a creamy key lime dessert - all for $20! Beautiful place, great food, perfect service. We enjoyed it all and will be back soon to sample other menu items.

Very good food. Had a steak which was so tasty it needed nothing added. Atmosphere was good with live guitar music. Located in a new strip center.
