We always get the Curry Durban or Roti, its <insert expletive> amazing! Havent been terribly impressed with anything else on the menu, but still go back again and again just for the curry.
The service needs improvement.
Try the Umngqushu Stambu
Very slow and bad service. The sweet potato quiche is amazing though and so was the burger.
Good food, good vibe, done in true South African spirit!
South African food with a super awesome ambiance. Interesting dishes and drinks. A little pricey.
Great food (samoosas, chakala, bunny chow!), drinks, atmosphere, service! One of my favorite restaurants anywhere! Was recommended by a Durban native.
Owner said to us "you can eat my food or bigger off". Surprisingly, we stayed. An hour later, we're still waiting for the food. Thinking about buggering off.
Terrible, slow service :(
Guava cosmo is awsm.
Get the Ostrich Carpaccio and wings as your appetizer. DELICIOUS - Your welcome :-)
Service is seriously suspect here. But I keep comin back.. Cuz I'm not in a hurry
Oh boy, the lobster tail in butter cream sauce....not the same as when I had it a year ago, but always sumptuous.
Be sure to try the whiskey milkshakes.
The Staff is cool and the food is very very good! Yebo Burger with Cheddar Cheese was FANTASTIC! and Damn good Moheitos!
Have the Koeksisters for dessert!
Ask for Ruen to make you a margarita..
Love their prawns, seafood biryani
The lamb chops are like meat candy!
It's a bit pricey for the portion size, but I'm partial to the lamb curry roti.
I really, really want to love this place. But service was terrible & our food was cold (would have been delicious). Frustrating! Steep prices & not even a check up for alcohol ($$)...smdh. Just sayin
Step 1: Order Chakalaka & Slap Chips. Step 2: Dump Former over later. Step 3: Eat it w/ your face. Step 4: Thank me & tip your server.
Try the lamb bunny chow and the wings! Prepare for a kick of pepper with the wings though!
This place is AWESOME. Do yourself a favor and get the Mulva pudding for dessert. SO GOOD!
The sangria with lychee is so good
amarula!! yum. the lamb bunny thing was delicious. about to try the traditional salad--
can't go wrong with samosas or lamb curry bunny chow. lamb chops were great, though chops themselves were pretty small.
Ox tail is good, but I don't know about those lamp sausages.
Sample their fruity drinks
Lamb bunny chow and Mozambique prawns - yummm!!
chicken curry roti style
The Durban bunny chow is excellent
Brunch was decent. We didn't venture too deep in the menu this time, but there are some great curry items I hope to try in the future. Get the pitcher of Obama Mama. You won't regret it
Rest In Peace Madiba.
Good ostrich carpaccio and lamb chops. Cornmeal and cabaggey sides are blah.
Peri peri wings are a must. I also recommend the prawns, boboti, and Durban bunny chow. Tusker beer and ginger beer will quench your thirst.
I love this place. It has a great vibe & atmosphere. Get the Durban Bonny chow curry with seafood! The spices are like an aphrodisiac.
The Pap & Vleis is super tasty. So good.
Try the prawns! And the chakalaka beans are wild tasty. Yum!
The Oxtail Potjie Kos rules all.
Complimentary brunch cocktail #ftw
Everything is good here. Food, service, and south African wines
Boerwors with a bottle of Noble Hill Syrah... just like on the vineyard!
Went for second time & food was again delightful! I had lobster tail w/saffron rice in a sweet chutney + an Obama Mama rum drink (mmmm). My companion had a lamb curry w/tasting palette. Also delish.
Bunny Chow is excellent here! Same with the house ginger beer :)
Soup is excellent.
Try the biltong
had the traditional salad and the roasted chicken and mayo on white bread. so. delicious.
