I have eaten here a few times and have to finally admit that I am now tired of the same menu & settings. The prices are over the top and the service level does not warrant these costs either. Lovely restaurant to try out otherwise.

This casual little place is tucked away in a nice informal neighbourhood in Johannesburg. Their service is fantastic. And the curry was the die for. We tried Cape Malay in Bo Kap & other places in South Africa but this is definitely the real deal!
