Had a great meal in Chaplin's. The t-bone steak was perfect, costs 220 rand for 500g with a side dish. Wines are also very good and not super expensive. The owner Rainauld is a very pleasant guy, we had a lovely conversation towards the end...More

We serve halal meat and grill on separate grill. So Halal friendly. We are not a Halal restaurant. Call us if you have any other queries.

Sorry, our Speedpoint's only take credit cards when you are present. We can't do it like a travel agency. I think it's a security issue for restaurants.
