My friend and I decided to go for a night cap after a movie last night (17 February 2017) at 22h30. Thought Boabab would be a good place to end a nice evening. We sat down in one of the booths close to the staircase. Our drinks arrived and something caught my eye on the floor. Firstly thought it was... More

I just love this restaurant and I always come back. The fish is very good, the meat great and the sushi amazing! I recommend it to everyone. It isn't more expensive than other restaurants out there that are "chains" and the quality of the food is not even as close to here. This is very good food, chains seem cheap... More

Went to this restaurant to meet up with friends, it used to be very good, now it really is incredibly poor, especially the quality of the food was very sub standard. Even when arriving the place was dirty with the table not being cleared, and papers lying around. I for one will not go there again

My boyfriend and I went for drinks two times now. Each time the service was amazing and we eat there as well. Food was great but pricy. Atmosphere is better in the evenings because the full effect of the décor becomes alive in the dark. My only criticism would be that the paper serviettes ar thin and limited, the table... More

This restaurant is situated in Menlyn shopping centre. Stunning décor but unfortunately that is where it ends. We asked for ice to the side when we ordered our wine, but didn’t receive it. Asked another 2 times and eventually asked another waitress. An old lady came to sit opposite us and she waited 20 minutes for someone to actually bring... More

Friendly staff that are well informed and a new restaurant layout creates a great atmosphere with the option of sitting outside

I love their menu. They have anything you can think of. The service is also really good. They used to serve amazing breakfasts but for some reason stopped doing it. I loved going there for a proper, well priced breakfast

The food in general was pretty good although the oxtail was not falling off the bone and was difficult to eat. Our waiter had difficulty in understanding our orders which we had to repeat several times and even then he got one of the four mains wrong. The restaurant on the upper deck has a much nicer ambiance than the... More

Reviews looked good, but our experience was not great. Decor is great, but I do not think the food warrants the cost. Just another expensive Steakhouse?
