We had a lovely dinner with friends. The setting is not so nice as it is in a mall, but that would not stop me from returning. Service was attentive and friendly. I can't remember what exactly we had but it was all good.

Wonderful variations on the breakfast theme, with a local slant. Delightful juice flavours and boboti spring rolls to name just a few. Will have to experience their lunches and suppers too!

The food is of excellent quality. The service is superb. Our ambassador Teddy was very attentive without being intrusive. I would come back here often. The kingklip lamb shank and bunny chow were delectable. Will definitely be back.

Cannot recommend enough! Martinis were to die for - the lemon meringue certainly floated my boat! I has the veg stir fry - probably the best meal I’ve had this year let alone in Johannesburg... Can’t wait to go back ...
