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.

Ordered the hottest chicken meal on the menu.The order was delivered in reasonable time. The meal was great. Ended up sweating a lot but enjoyed every bit of it. The wait staff were great and...

Service indifferent. Food good but not great. Prices on the higher end. No specials were offered by the waiting staff, we had to ask. After the initial drinks were ordered no further drinks were offered. If you are on a nostalgia trip to family braai's in South Africa the salad bar would hit the mark. Compared to the beautiful salads... More

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 and had a great view from the window seats. The Waitress was friendly and the... 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 there again.

Steak knives are blunt, food arrangement poor, pepper grinder not offered, I asked for it and it was empty. I asked them to fill it, they went away for 10 minutes while my steak got cold and then it came back.... still empty and no pepper for my steak. Steak was ok but they don't seem to pay any attention... More

Five of us visited Serengeti to try out their ribs and we all selected salad instead of veg. Everybody enjoyed their meals.

This previously good restaurant has gone down lately. Service and portion sizes are down and prices are up. We ordered a burger which came burnt (see photo). We ordered 2 sides, one came half way through the meal, and the other as everyone was finishing. Given the poor service, reduced portions and increased price, we will not be returning.
