I visited this place on recommendation from a friend. The vibe, quality of food, service and reasonable prices were extremely great. Was very impressed would recommend and will be passing through this joint every time I visit SA. There also had live football Barca vs...Real Madrid.More

I must say I'm utterly disgusted by the staff. Arrived at the place at 13h30 and by 15h45 was still not assisted. I was told by the barman that I should go order out food myself. Tried my luck with several waiters and waitresses but...no luck, either I got the no response look or I'm coming back sign after that no eye contact. I'm never setting my Foo here ever againMore

Imbizo has opened up a new branch in China Mall Midrand. It is beautifully set up however I had to approach the waiters as we were being ignored. The food is pricey, the meat was tough, the ujeqe was dense, chakalaka cold and talk about...portion control, it was like we were on the survivor island, rationing out our food. The wine selection is very limited, no printed drinks menu. It was an experience, not to be repeated anytime soon.More

The chaos that is there is beneath me, after waited for an hour still the meat was not near to be done. Had to go around waiters asking and still my meat was lost somewhere in the fire. Everyone serving is so confused there is...no order in that place.More
