Manager extremely arrogant and unfriendly. Please let the waiters take food orders. Managers was irritated when we had a question around how the food was prepared. Kamo our waitress was a gem. Disappointing

The food is not traditional South African, which makes it refreshing and interesting but it can verge on the stodgy. The decor is really nice and the accoustics and situation near the North door makes it easy to find and a pleasant place to meet...and talk.More

We (5) went there for a Saturday lunch today to celebrate my Mom’s birthday- after I searched and saw the great reviews on Tripadvisor. The food was excellent! We love Middle Eastern cuisine especially after living in the Middle East for 7 years, and this...was the best we had in Gauteng. Wide variety on menu and tasty. And the service was also spot-on! Waitrons making eye contact when you need them and not annoying you by interrupting conversations and asking if you need anything (this is not common in restaurants). Decor beautiful contemporary, clean WCs. We would definitely go again and would recommend to others.More
