    They have the best smoking area ever provided for a restaurant. It is not a dingy corner, but part of the restaurant.

    I just love Boabab, I make sure I come here whenever I visit SA. Their portions are massive for the price and the quality does not disappoint. Try the Sweet Chilly Chicken, it's unbelievably good!
