I am utterly shocked by the state of the Moyo at uShaka. I have been to numerous Moyo's in the Western Cape and in Gauteng and the Moyo in Durban definately does not live up to the standards of the brand. The restuarant was dirty, i found a piece of gum on my serviette. My husband was served a flat... More

Scrumptious food,chicken dishes were spectacular, lamb was moist and succulent. Desserts were delish. Looked too pretty to eat, but was divine. Even had our own singers, an Zulu dancers. The view was amazing. An all round unforgettable experience

A few of us stopped over for some fish and chips and a few Long Island ice teas, the views of the beach were stunning and the food was of good quality, a nice lunch spot with a traditional theme dinning area

Unique setting at the end of a pier at Ushaka in Durban. The establishment geared more towards drinks and cocktails with six pages in the menu dedicated to the topic. Long wait for food, but worth it. Tasted amazing and value for money. I would suggest that if you are ordering food to rather sit at the top section, it... More

We have visited Moyos on the Pier for many years. With our latest visit we were extremely disappointed with the almost run down condition. Still a great place to have a relaxing drink but definitely needs refurbishment.

This is really wonderful restoran with a most amazing view. It's over the ocean. They make the most delicious cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, which look very nice. I recommend a part of restoran which is over the ocean, the view is really unforgettable.
