We went there on 21 Dec 2017 as a family. Atmosphere formal, neat and classy but little vibe. Kids menu almost non existent (1 fish and one steak dish only). The adult portion of fish for R180 was less than the kids dish- no starch,...More

Quality restaurant, good food and efficient friendly service. Clearly know what they are doing and are attentive to the details. Steaks and ostrich were very good with really tasty roasted potatoes. Busy restaurant but the process just flows effortlessly.

I was so looking forward to the famous Nguni steak but was sadly disappointed both at the steak and its supplements. Really quite dry and tasteless. The waitress looked at me as if I was quite mad when I told her that I didn’t want...More

I had a good meal at this restaurant, ostrich streak was excellent, but my wife had the fish which was quitter dry and overcooked. Wine was nice. But we felt the restaurant and staff were a bit pretentious and better than its guests.

Decorated with style and laid-back seating in the patio at the back. The food was delicious with typical meat of South-Africa on the menu: ostrich, springbok,... Taste it!

Having read the reviews I was really looking forward to dining in Nguni. My husband and I shared the bobotie spring rolls for starters and they were to die for but that was the only positive for me. Our main courses arrived as soon as...More

This would normally be rated as excellent but because of the very high standard of restaurants in South Africa it has to be very good. The steaks were lovely and the desserts to die for! One minor point was that the potatoes tasted like they...More

An absolute joy to find a genuine African restaurant amongst a sea of predictability and ennui. Fortunately we booked in advance as it was rammed to the gunwhales even in midweek from the off---I can see why. Reasonably, if not cheaply priced, it offers genuine...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!
