We haven’t been to Moyo’s since they changed the menu and I was a bit worried initially. Fortunately the food is still top notch and uniquely Africa-inspired. I had a perfectly medium rump with dhukka spice and my partner chose the Durban lamb curry. Both...More

Visited for our anniversary. When making reservations was unsure where to sit - Outside, Mezzanine, Inside??? We chose the Mezzanine but when we arrived they recommended the Downstairs because it was more romantic. They were soooo right! They sat us in a private little cove...More

The food here is absolutely authentic and amazing. You must have one of their signature drinks. The staff is so friendly, they make sure you have a blanket and are placed by the fire or heat as June is their winter. I love it there.
