“Exciting dinner”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

My family including two 9 year old kids decided to be adventurous and try Karoo's South African cooking. We loved it all. From the snail rangoons to the samosas to the monkey ribs. The kids were really into trying all the different and strange foods. I had the curried lamb stew. Rather spicy, but very good.

The staff was friendly and eager to explain all the strange menu items. We will be back.

“Bravo, Bravo, Bravo!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

An absolutely wonderful juxtaposition of flavors and diverse ethnicity that is subtly balanced with the freshest ingredients. While we sorely miss the convenience of their Ptown café that the owner decided to close this year to focus on the flagship restaurant in Eastham, the 44 mile roundtrip that we eagerly make is testimony to outstanding reviews that this restaurateur so richly deserves. The wait staff is very attentive, prompt, and accommodating. Oh, and I might add that the menu prices on an inflation adjusted basis are from the 1990s. Kudos.

“Fantastic.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We just love this place. The menu options are authentic, and there's nothing else like it on Cape. The restaurant itself is comfortable, and on our first trip, the chef came to our table and personally thanked us for our visit. Highly recommended!
