This location is worth a visit. It‘s authentic African food and entertainment in one place. After a short introduction you get served a rich selection of dishes from different African countries. It‘s really delicious and I think nobody will remain hungry. During the dinner a group of locals are dancing and singing African music. The prices are not shown and I would say it‘s more expensive than in most of the other restaurants in Cape Town.

There is only one 13-course menu for everyone. It was great but it was too much for me infortunately. I can recommend it, though.

We were in Capetown on a family vacation last summer and stumbled upon this amazing restaurant. We had never really experienced African food before and it was so good. Portions were large but even the kids cleaned their plates.
If yo are ever in Capetown you should make sure you check this place out.

All great dishes, which had the look, smell and taste of authentic food.

Lovely smiley staff, who looked to be enjoying what they do.

Highly recommend, but, a word of warning, eat all the dishes before you order more, it`s very filling

A very nice place to get a taste of African food. The food was really good, you get like 14 dishes, all from different countries. Very cheerful place with live singing.
