  • The service needs improvement.
  • Very slow and bad service. The sweet potato quiche is amazing though and so was the burger.
  • Owner said to us "you can eat my food or bigger off". Surprisingly, we stayed. An hour later, we're still waiting for the food. Thinking about buggering off.
  • Terrible, slow service :(
  • South African food with a super awesome ambiance. Interesting dishes and drinks. A little pricey.
  • Guava cosmo is awsm.
  • They brought Bobotie to Choice Eats- traditional Cape May curried mince bake (meatloaf) with an egg custard tuppine & shaved almonds. Served with yellow rice and raisins, complimented with sambas. It
  • Great food (samoosas, chakala, bunny chow!), drinks, atmosphere, service! One of my favorite restaurants anywhere! Was recommended by a Durban native.
  • We always get the Curry Durban or Roti, its <insert expletive> amazing! Havent been terribly impressed with anything else on the menu, but still go back again and again just for the curry.
  • Get the Ostrich Carpaccio and wings as your appetizer. DELICIOUS - Your welcome :-)
  • Service is seriously suspect here. But I keep comin back.. Cuz I'm not in a hurry
  • Be sure to try the whiskey milkshakes.
  • Have the Koeksisters for dessert!
  • Love their prawns, seafood biryani
  • chicken curry roti style
  • The lamb chops are like meat candy!
  • It's a bit pricey for the portion size, but I'm partial to the lamb curry roti.
  • I really, really want to love this place. But service was terrible & our food was cold (would have been delicious). Frustrating! Steep prices & not even a check up for alcohol ($$)...smdh. Just sayin
  • Oh boy, the lobster tail in butter cream sauce....not the same as when I had it a year ago, but always sumptuous.
  • Good food, good vibe, done in true South African spirit!
