Very welcoming staff. Our waitress recommend the lamb curry special which was delicious. Perfect setting for a romantic dinner. However the menu has a very small verity and somewhat pricy. Food is great quality and this quaint restutant gives off an African feel.

Very nice restaurant. Super friendly staff. Sat outside on the patio. Starters were phenominal: the mezze and the springrolls, with a splendid African touch. As mains, the tuna and the chicken curry were very nice. Dessert, the brownies... you know you want to! Great value...More

We visit Plett in March every year and have been regular patrons of this establishment. Last year we were most dissatisfied with our steak meal and made this clear to management who did not seem particularly concerned. We decided never to return however this year...More

Nguni Restaurant Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett's oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni's African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites. With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu. A true taste of the Cape!
