As always the food was good. Not quite as good as it useD to be but good nevertheless. A bit pricey for locals but always an enjoyable place to take visitorsome from out of town to.

I had a lovely dinner sitting on the terrace. The menu has a number of specialty from across Africa. I went for the ostrich fillet, which was very tasty. Portions are large (the ostrich came with vegetables, more than enough for dinner), so don't over order. Wine voice wasn't great, or maybe the wine I choose just wasn't good, a... More

Wine sense is a place only wine lovers must try. This is Johannesburg South Africa at its leading and innovative best - wine tasking in a restaurant but at one's leisure leveraging a technology dispensing system that is truly genius.

This restaurant was my first stop in Jo'burg, quite the introduction it was! The food certainly had the African vibe to it, and although it's very highly rated on Trip Advisor the prices are quite reasonable I think. Have a look at the menu yourself. I hope you're not too prudish, otherwise you should not look at the doors of... More

We dined at Moyo's on two occasions and enjoyed both the authentic meals and the entertainment. Audience participation was encouraged. Very busy but relaxed atmosphere and reasonably fast service. On the first occasion, Patience served us and was especially friendly and attentive. The manager was also sociable and helpful in assisting us with securing a taxi back to our hotel.... More

We ate outside warmed by heaters in the Square in Melrose. We arrived early but the place began to fill up from 7pm. The menu is quite extensive with a few vegetarian options. I chose a starter of peri peri chicken livers then the three bean curry potje which had a spicy bite to it. The service was very good.

This is a fun place to celebrate. They have face painting and sing what I can assume is an African Birthday song. Food and drink were ok. But go for the music and environment. Service is great and everyone is friendly.

As a past regular patron I have notice that the service in this premium restaurant has dropped significantly. Smaller complimentary bread portions.. the attention to detail dropping. Food not as well prepared as before. Sad to see.. as it was a staple foreign visitor restaurant for my guests or overseas business travellers. They used to do the scented hand washing... More
