Currently sat in the restaurant now as I type this. My mother and I have both just enjoyed very tasty and reasonably priced meals in Tribes. The staff were very attentive, the food was delicious, and the ambience in the restaurant was great! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

We ordered "Hakuna Matatta" plate and tried two different drinks. The food was amazing, the service was nice and the drinks were ok. Recommended.

We came twice and tried different meat dishes, nothing was particularly good and some dishes was not really that great. Only reason we went again because they do amazing dance with beats and drums for birthdays, but that's it.

Excellent service and a good choice of food available. Have to try the avocado and beetroot salad - not sure how this is prepared but it's awesome ! Have also visited the MOE restaurant which is equally as good. Will definitely return.
