Great food, amazing service, wish that I could bring this place home with me!
The meat was on another level you could taste that it wasn't factory farmed which is a huge plus.

Quaint place with a fabulous owner(?) Chris. The food is excellent as is the service. You can get a wide variety from the menu but I recommend the authentic S. African fare like the venison the hunters bring in. Try the pap!

Had a great experience here. Food was delicious (and spicy!), tried pap for the first time and also had my new favorite dessert, malva pudding. Other customers were friendly and the staff were kind.

We enjoyed our meal at this lovely, nicely decorated small restaurant on Long St. A particular favourite: Lamb Curry - so nice! Looking forward to more meals there, particularly when we seek to introduce visitors to African food! It was also nice to speak French to our waiter as he hails from the DRC. Keep up the good work!

Our cabbie took us here and it was awesome! The owner took time to cook our meal to perfection :) One of the best restaurants on my trip thus far!
