Made a reservation at Baobab for Mommy to BE's closest friends and family, boy this we have fun. Classy restaurant with delicious meals and we got BEAUTIFUL pics too. Would like to send a HUGE shootout to our waiter GERALF (Baobab Menlyn), e made a huge difference to our dining experience (a group of 12). He is a good waiter, very professional, despite doing a job which isn’t easy. Keep it up Gerald and Wilfred kept checking up on us as well. Happy Customer

We visited Baobab after many years and really had a lovely afternoon, cocktails were strong and tasty and the food was good with generous portion sizes.

Menlyn baobab is scamming us out of side orders all of the time! BAD BAD Service. The manager tonight said we must screw up the Uber guy after the MISTAKE WAS MADE BY YOU!! THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME NOW. WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET THIS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What pathetic disgusting service and cheaters from Menlyn Boabab. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! I placed an order online for a mix grill and the delivery came, I asked the driver to please wait as I check my meal only to find that it has missing meat. When I stepped outside the driver has disappeared and upon calling the restaurant the manager told me i can come in to get the missing meat or upon my next order i must place commentary to get the missing meat. To my horrified shock of how he thinks i can drive to menlyn at any point or how he figures this will be possible from another order defeats me. he didnt even care to give an alternative suggestion that will accommodate me. He than later says drivers are not his control and FYI they dont have the meat in stock available. so if that is the case why didnt i get a courtesy call or a discount on my meal or replacement???? i still stressed how i used my last money to accommodate a meeting i was to have with people and I am remote working and cant be fixing messed up orders which he didn't seem bothered by!! this is disgusting shocking service coming from a manager at Menlyn Boabab. I have the recording and will go viral with it!!! it be interesting to hear how we are treated in these times of trying to safe and still work and accommodate our lives with the terrible service from our restaurants. I will never order from Boabab and will make sure all the people I know that prefer the place of business go somewhere else. they don't deserve the capital coming in if this is how we are disregarded.

Had supper at Baobab in Menlyn last night. Not sure why the heading says cafe because it is definitely not a cafe. It is a classy restaurant with delicious steaks. Had a small problem with my husband’s order but management sorted it out quickly. Loved loved loved the decor. Stunning toilets. Friendly & professional service. Most of us had ribeye steak - really good. I ordered mine with stir fry veg - delicious! My youngest devoured the bacon and avo burger - said it was the best he’d had. Highly recommended. (Forgot to take photo the meal as I couldn’t wait to tuck into it ☺️)

Been here a couple of times it’s a great restaurant and the stuff is friendly. It has a great view especially at night. For some weird reason 80% of the time I’ve been there someone was being proposed 💍 just next to my table or a bit further. Guess it’s an ideal place if u want to engage ur love one.

It is one of our favorites restaurants inside the Menlyn shopping Mall. It is an South African Cuisine Restaurant. The inside design is awesome, very African style. The service and food are really good. Many different kind of meat and wine, but also have good fish. Don’t forget to try also the desserts, the chocolate mousse is my favorite. It is a must!!!

We visited here one lunchtime and the service was excellent as was the food The restaurant has great ambience with tasteful decor and it is very chilled I ordered the xio xio chicken which was delicious and I really enjoyed the flavours. A really lovely spot and would love to come back and try more that the menu has to offer.

We were a group of 12 people (kids to 80s) celebrating a bithday, with very diverse cullinary needs. Orders were taken efficiently and with the neccessary guidance where needed, and service and quality was checked just the right amount of times. Food quantity and quality was good, with many a doggy bag leaving with us. The atmosphere was quite intimate, despite the large group. All diners thourougly enjoyed their meals and the setup was not a squeesed in large table where you struggle to move. Everyone could freely move around and switch chairs to allow conversations within a group that had not seen each other for quite some time. Will definitely return.

The food here is alright nothing to rave about. The menu is a bit daunting as it is massive and has endless items, making one wonder how they keep so much food fresh.

This restaurant is on the first floor of Menlyn Shopping Mall on the eastern wings just next to the food court and Edgar Store. It's a two floor restaurant originally owned by Cape Town fish. The floor terrace has a wonderful view. This restaurant is frequented by urban upmarket clientele hence no youth hang at this place. They have a wide variety menu in line with their clients. The bar is on the ground floor opposite the entrance. The atmosphere is friendly.

Dined here just before I boarded my flight home. So pleased I did. 7 of us enjoyed 7 wonderful meals. Friendly prompt service. 3 had steaks of various types and size, all cooked perfectly. One had ribs, delicious. 3 had salads and haloumi. All agreed it was delicious and great value for money. Definitely worth a visit and the view is fantastic.
