If you want some nice meat, go here!! Just above Van Rensburgs butchery it has the freshest and best meat in town. Always a good meal here and will always go back.

“Hands down the best ribs ever”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed a family meal here before Christmas. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient and the little touch of being given hand sanitiser and a nibble of Turkish Delight after being seated was a treat. We were all there to try out the ribs and were certainly not left disappointed - all agreed that they were the best we've had anywhere! Highly recommended!

“SA Cuisine with a Turkish Twist”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We were greeted warmly but had to wait quite a while to be asked what we wanted to drink and eat. My husband ordered lamb rump which he thoroughly enjoyed. It was a very thick piece of meat but was cooked superbly to his taste. The way they serve the vegetables all in a filo pastry tart was extremely innovative and very tasty and the wedges were piping hot. I ordered chicken & mango curry which was accompanied by poppadum and sambals. Unfortunately, I had to comment to the waitress that although my meal on the whole was very nice I could not make out any curry flavour in the food. I do not like hot curries but my meal really did not taste of curry at all. However, having said that, the menu was varied and priced just right so we will go back for another visit soon.

Hi, thank you very much for your review.
I will look into the curry-as it stated on the menu - a very mild chicken & mango curry, as general people don't like a medium or hot curry. Some customers ask for more mild / medium / or hot, it's a personal preference. Our chefs will gladly prepare it to your liking!
Hope to host you in the near future. Kind Regards.
