The food at Nguni was really nice, with very good service. We had the tuna carpaccio and the Nguni beef, perfectly cooked. Make sure to get a table outside.

Recommended by hotel. Had babooite spring rolls, and ostrich and two desserts, plus wine and coffee. Fabulous meal for about £40. Although branded as authentic , noticeable all clientele were white served by local people. Good night very good food food and very enjoyable.

Nice atmosphere, interesting deco with cows made of chicken wire. Pleasant service and good fresh food. My wife had a steak for her main course which excellent, very tender and tasty. Will probably go back there so that must be a good sign.

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!
