First of all the food was amazing. If you've never tried Malay food it is a cross between african and indian and very yummy! Moreover the Cape offers fun face painting for a uniquely african experience. Many exotic meats to try as well.

Description
Our gem of a chef, Martha Williams, needs a platform to show off her talents and we have therefore launched “The Cape Malay Experience.” You can book a Cape Malay evening which will be hosted, explained and served by Martha and her team. Our Malay restaurant and demonstration kitchen is in a cosy private dining area. This local cuisine restaurant is a unique dining experience in authentic Cape Malay food and an exciting choice of traditional taste treats await you. Spicy, rustic colours create a pleasant Eastern ambience. Cape Malay cooking is unique to the Western Cape.
