Very nice atmosphere, Starter of bean soup and honey bread was absolutely delicious ! wide variety of never ending meats. Had crocodile, which was very nice! The springbok samoosa was very tasty. Friendly staff. Overall a good outing for meat eaters.

If you love meat and you want to taste a variety of different African animals, then this is the place to go. We had crocodile, pork, beef, lamb, every kind of deer you can think of, it was delicious. If you wanted more, you just asked for more. It was a never-ending supply of meat and the price was cheap.

The mains are grilled meat of all sorts from the big rotisserie oven which you can see as you entered the restaurant . The saugages were hard and rather burnt and salty. The lamp is not as tasty and the crocodile meat is ok. Chicken propably the best. I has about 6 cold side dishes which are very good.

This restaurant is all about eating different kinds of meat and that is about it. If you are looking for anything further then it is not for you. Staff is not very friendly and service poor. Menu is limited to meat, meat and some more meat. Décor could do with a facelift. All in all once been there and tasted... More

I did not enjoy the meal or the experience of this restaurant at all. It does not appear to be about quality, but quantity, and the meaty menu did not titillate the palate.

The cutlery and wine glasses were dirty. The upholstery on the chairs dirty and fraying. The servers grumpy. The meat and side dishes poor.

This is a lovely place to experience great food and something that is completely different to your normal restaurant. The meat is never ending and you better come as hungry as a lion. From Buffalo to Giraffe and blesbok. Accompanied by superb side dishes. The staff is very friendly and the service is good. I would just like to see... More

When we first entered I was delighted by the beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant. Then the food started coming - an absolute feast. Staff super friendly and they were also dancing some traditional zulu dances. If you are visiting the area this place is a must!
