Nice decor but not luxurious, with outside seating also. Very interesting menu with a mixture of American and (somewhat) African dishes. The lamb curry was excellent. Wine list also interesting with all wines from South Africa. Service good and friendly. Will go here again.

My husband and I had dinner here curious about what South African food might be. Well, consider us fans! I had the cape Malay stew, and my husband had the bobotie. Both were excellent, and generous portions. I also appreciate that they have a list...More
