I love their menu. They have anything you can think of. The service is also really good. They used to serve amazing breakfasts but for some reason stopped doing it. I loved going there for a proper, well priced breakfast

Our waiter had difficulty in understanding our orders which we had to repeat several times and even then he got one of the four mains wrong. The restaurant on the upper deck has a much nicer ambiance than the... More

Reviews looked good, but our experience was not great. Decor is great, but I do not think the food warrants the cost. Just another expensive Steakhouse?

Boabab is a well known establishment in Pretoria. It is a restaurant where friends meet, couples have romantic dinners and business men make deals over lunch. I have been to Boabab on various occasions and have never felt disappointed. The food is always very well prepared (I especially enjoy their curries and potjies). Service is always professional and friendly. I... More

The restaurant is located inside the Menlyn Mall and is one of the few that provides more of a intimate ambience as opposed to the 'chain' restaurants in the building. The menu is extensive, with the addition of south african dishes. Portions were very large, i had sushi though it was average and more on the smaller side - nothing... More
