Highly recommended restaurant. Make sure you book in advance. You must order the babotie samoosas. An interesting combination of flavours. The tuna carpaccio is great too. Make sure you order line fish.

Lovely surroundings, welcoming atmosphere. Very good food, touch expensive. Simple, but varied menu with good service. Midweek, looked nearly full, not noisy though, good sign, discerning clientele?

We stayed in a local guest house and the owner recommended it to us and booked the last table. How lucky we were. It was a lovely restaurant and busy too. The meal was superb, great atmosphere and a snip at £40 with wine.

We came here spontaniously in bathing shorts on our road trip. All other people were clothed more fancy. Even though we got our table and enjoyed great steaks (ostrich / springbok) and delicious spring rolls. Staff was very nice.

The food was delicious and the service extremely attentive. The final bill came as a pleasant surprise and was very reasonable. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Plett.

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!
