A fantastic opportunity to try a large number of African dishes. The little tapas dishes are all excellent and there is so much food! The entertainment was brilliant and really informal. Try to get there earlier in the evening to see all the entertainment. Also would recommend booking in advance.

We were recommended visiting 'Gold' by a friend, to experience African culture/entertainment & of course the cuisine!
(advised to book ahead too)
Luckily we were able to make a 6:30pm reservation, in time for the pre-dinner interactive drumming session.
From arrival we felt a warm welcome and were shown our seats. All seating in the restaurant has full access/view of the entertainment so doesn't matter where you are seated which was great.
Interactive drumming was a great start to the evening, getting everyone in the mood with humour along the way.
Once back at our table the waiting staff were very informative, explaining three courses of varying dishes would be served to share between us...enabling us to try lots of different dishes.
My food-fussy partner was a bit dubious but cleaned the plate for each course.
African dancing & singing inbetween courses made the experience as a whole amazing and would highly recommend anyone to visit this culinary delight!

Went with friends visiting from the US, and had such a great , uplifting experience . Did the drumming exercise before supper which is good fun too!

Great African food served by friendly staff. The entertainment doesn’t disrupt the meal either !

If you are lucky , the pumpkin fritters may still be on the menu !

We had dinner at Gold restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised and the food was amazing, the service was impeccable and we will be going back soon.
Do yourself a favour and go and experience it for yourself. The drumming is worth while and allot of fun.
