We'd heard good reports about Nguni but were disappointed. Very limited menu - they seemed to want to promote the steak but I can do a good steak on the braai at home. I'd prefer to be offered something a bit more imaginative. I had...More

There was one evening we wanted some nice place to dine in so I decided to trust TripAdvisor and picked Nguni because of its reviews. As it's very common that the kitchen usually closes at 9 everywhere and we had to drive a bit to...More

Our hotel recommended Nguni and managed the booking for us. We had a great meal the first time - and can't speak highly enough about the Cape Brandy Pudding - my husband ordered it and I liked it so much that I ate most of...More

If you are in Plett Nguni is the place to eat. Sitting in the garden you are well served. The food is traditional South African with a twist. We had the boboti rolls as a starter followed by tuna and ostrich steak. We loved it....More

Initially the restaurant service seemed slow, and unfortunately maintained that pace for the evening. Food quality excellent - and our table particularly enjoyed the calamari starter.

We were expecting good things based on the reviews read in advance and we weren't disappointed. Nice busy atmosphere but plenty of space between tables and we couldn't fault the service nor quality of food and wines.

Cool spot in a characterful setting with fresh lunch menu and delicious options. Good service. Took a little while to fill up. Can't understand why so undersubscribed for lunch - well worth another visit.

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!
