Music,drumming, dancers exotically dressed among the tables, diner participation, waiter banter, what a night ! But the real surprise and delight was the African taster menu from all over the Continent - a bit difficult to follow and it defeated us in the end but all interesting and delicious.

This is a must in Cape Town. It's very entertaining and so much fun! The food is amazing. It's a 14 course meal and each serving is from a different part of Africa. They have amazing entertainment throughout the night and you're welcome to partake if you wish! Everything was so good that we are going back in February 2018 when we are on holiday in Cape Town.

I got this tip from a friend of mine. You need to reserve the dinner and drums. It's worth doing it. You start playing the drums and follow to 14 plates dinner. Don't miss the African face painting as well. Enjoy!

From the show to the food everuthing was good. The menu is a tadting menu with different foods from around afrika. You have a lot of food! They also paint.your face :) the place is.more like a big garage which was turned into a restaurant so nothing fancy and is also very full. But the food is highly recommended if you want to taste something different
