The menu looked so promising...we were all looking forward to a really good Christmas feast. Sadly the menu over-promised as the meals were a huge dissapointment! Bones, sauce & fatty chunks (no traces of meat) were served as Pork shank cherry potjie....just one of the many dissapointing dishes served.The salad bar presented salads + another dish that was not listed on the menu, cockroaches! I must however compliment Ubuntu on the desserts...the selection was wide and really tasty! Now just to work on the food! Will i ever visit or recommend Ubuntu to friends and family...probably not.

Thank Charlene A

Hello Charlene A

Thank you for taking the time to share your review and please accept our apologies for the poor food quality you experienced, it’s certainly not our usual standard. I will take your comments up with the management of Ubuntu as your experience is certainly not our normal standard..

I would like to invite you to return and experience Ubuntu as it normally is - excellent service coupled with excellent and wide variety of food.

We were there on NYE, and it was a really good experience.
The waiters were friendly and really helpful.

But let's talk about the buffet...
There were so many various options: curries, stews, schwarmas, roast meats, salads, build your own pizza and pasta options (where you tell them what to add to your pizza and pasta. And so much dessert.
We left there nicely filled

Oh and there were the Christmas crackers to add a nice touch to the festivities... yes it is the small things that matter.
