My friends and I went to ubuntu last night and we all had a great time, the food was delicious and the service we received was elegant and again I have to say that the staff members were entertaining...
I've found a better place for ribs.

Took my family for Christmas lunch to Ubuntu. Food was good and there was a great variety of foods to choose from. The décor of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired and the seating was not that great. However the food was excellent and was a great day overall.

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.

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.
