I visited Chef's Boma last weekend with some visitors from the USA. We were all impressed by the friendly and efficient service and the wide variety at the buffet. Too many choices! The service was attentive without being intrusive and the quality of the food and entertainment - a marimba band - was very good. The view out of the windows at sunset must be fantastic - unfortunately we arrived a bit late for that. We will go back!

I have always heard about the Chief's Boma restaurant at the Indaba Hotel but never had the opportunity to try it out. As they are currently running a "2 for 1" special on Sunday evenings, the wife and I decided to give it a try.

We were welcomed at the entrance by a warm inviting fire and a Marimba band. Our pleasant waiter explained to us how the buffet worked and, after placing our drinks order, we proceeded to the starters section.

There is so much on offer to mention that it would be best that you go to their webpage and have a look at the selection of food on offer.

To the sounds of the marimba band we enjoyed our meal, dessert, coffee and cheese and biscuits and left very full and very satisfied.

The staff are awesome, the food fresh and plentiful and, with their current special, the best value buffet in Johannesburg.

We'll be back!!
