We arrived here in the Townships and very firstly a bit scared due to a ceremony on the street, but the staff was amazing in convincing us about the safeness of this place and at the end we're as so grateful! In one word... Amazing!

The show, the food, the dessert and the stories was all an unique and very special experience!

What a great experience!
I urge everybody to treat themselves with a visit to Mama at Mzansi. The place is oozing good vibes. The music from the local band set the mood and Mamas homemade dishes were all treats. It was also fascinating to hear the story of how Mzansi came to be and how the whole community benefits from the growing popularity of the place. The icing on the cake this evening, was the two adorable and talented kids visiting from Johannesburg playing their guitars and singing. Hats off ❤️

One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The food was incredible. I could literally eat it every single day. Mama and her family, were hands down some of the nicest most incredible people I have ever met. Not only will you get an incredible home cooked meal but you will get an inspiring, heartwarming story of a family who will teach you the meaning of happiness and fulfillment. When I go back to South Africa, I will come back to Langa and I will come back to Mzansi. Please do yourself a favor and experience this...you won’t regret a second of it.

Situated in the less developed and fortunate part of the city, the Restaraunt has a story to tell and an experience to share for those seeking real and all rounded vibes of a new country.
