“Yummy South African fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2016

One of Obs hidden gems. I love the tomato soup starter and the falafel pita. Very affordable and with an interesting menu.

“What an interesting place! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2016 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for something different and this certainly fits into that category. It looks a little scruffy, especially from the outside but it has a lot of character. The food was really great. I had umngqusho (lamb shank with samp) and my wife had the vegetable rootie. Really delicious and very affordable.
