The waitress gives you a menue, but we have seen the buffet, so we decided to do also, and that was not a mistake. You'll have a rich choice, and you can eat as much as you want for a fixed price. Excellent.

Had their Chicken Bacamberry with chips. Same as the previous time a few months ago. Top quality! At a reasonable price. I hope they will open a restaurant in Nelspruit soon. I will be a regular guest.
