Don't be put off by it being in a side street. It is small but the food quality and range make a visit well worth while. Very good service with pleasant staff

We both ate Springbok - probably the best we have tasted in 4 trips to SA. The starter (Caprese) and dessert were also excellent

Went to nguni on vacation in Plett, and wow, loved it. Small, owner-run boutique restaurant situated in an old house. Simple, fine food done with care, passion and style.

Seemed to date from a previous era, but that might have just been the dinner guests! Good food and service. Very central.

A bit overrated, the inside salon is stuffy (as in no oxygen) and the patio is a bit ordinary. Waiters are top-notch, and food is a bit plain.

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!
