Incredible choice of variety of meat: from the most known to the typically local ones. Well grilled, well introduced at the table. Also excellent the choice of wines

Visited for dinner with 2 colleagues. The service was efficient and friendly. Two of us had steaks which were cooked to perfection and accompanied with pap and a spicy pepper sauce. Our other friend enjoyed Kudo which he thoroughly enjoyed. Prices were competitive and I would certainly return. Thanks I Hi

We visited Emperors Palace and since not interested in casino directly headed for good food. We landed in Tribes African Grill. The food was delicious with some local South African beer. The staff was friendly and prompt in providing service. Overall we had a good experience.

The service is very good the atmosphere is well set. We ordered ribs, it was mostly just bone, we ended up giving it back and just ate the Veggies, the dessert was a nice surprise, was an pootjie pot that was made out of chocolate and that was very nice. I will go there again, will stay clear of the... More

Had a beautiful meal here in a secluded corner of the restaurant. Attentive service, nice wine selection and despite being predominantly a meat restaurant there are a good selection of fish dishes available

I visited the restaurant on my birthday - 16th November 2016. I ordered a steak meal, it was not to my liking, I felt that the meal was not appetizing enough an too bland. The staff service can definitely be improved. If you are one for foods with less seasoning then this place would be for you. I would not... More

All was positive as we stepped in for dinner at this restaurant, which I must say, reminds of similar milleu at another African-themed Cape Town restaurant by the beachside. And the meal, which I specifically ordered for our party of 5, that of oxtail soup with rice, was very delicious. The oxtails were well cooked, and very succulent, the flesh... More

They promote their game platter but for that price it’s almost an insult. Each of the 5 pieces of game-meat were tough and the sides cost extra. And when we told the ignorant waitress that the wine was corked she insisted that it tastes like this and refused to bring us another bottle.

Thank Dino W
