Madiba, a tribute to Nelson Mandela, is not just a restaurant - it is an experience. It is like spending a while in another place. The look and feel of the restaurant is meant to feel like South Africa, and those from there say they have succeeded. The decor is unusual, warm, eclectic. The staff are friendly, attentive, and will even dance with you if you ask :-). The food is wonderful, different, savory (sometimes pretty spicy), and the drinks are great, fun, and potent! The 'roti' bread is one of the best breads of any nationality we'd ever had - light and flaky and buttery and almost sweet, like a cross between naan and a flat croissant - heaven. There was great music that night, which just added to the great atmosphere. Don't plan on getting in and out - they say they're on South African time, that you will wait for your food, and you will. But try to see it as an evening out and just enjoy. Totally worth it. One of the best restaurant experiences we'd all ever had.
