We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and service. Compared to the 'other' South African restaurant chain we won't mention here, Serengeti comes out tops in my opinion. Generous portions, and absolutely delicious. Try the calamari!

Its an expensive place but the portion size makes up for it. One of the boys had Chicken Burger. The other had Rib & Calamari bottomless. My wife had chicken salad and I had King Fish. We all enjoyed ourselves.

We purchased a Grabone voucher recently and decided to go there on a Sunday as they just started Lunches on weekends. As we come from East Auckland the drive was better to avoid heavy traffic. The Restaurant was decked out to represent an African theme...More

We waited two hours for a very sub standard meal, salad bar was empty, food was Luke warm, and the baked Potatoe that was in silver foil was cold......what are they playing at. Manager was totally unsympathetic, and unsupportive of his staff. Will never go...More
