Restaurant Reviews:

This place is great. Atmosphere is chill and cool but the staff makes the place it is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, they understand the menu and the various offerings available and the variations of each and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is super good, with some mzansi classics and some combos to keep you confused as to what to choose on the menu, and for their prices it’s 100% worth it.

Went in on 12th March late lunch. Massive, huge thanks, kudos to manager Zama and awesome waiter, Musa. You guys are rockstars. 🤗💃👍

The sushi chef here is unbelievably incredible! His sushi would be a best seller at a 5 star restaurant. The restaurant could go to the next level if it were more spacious, it's quite a tight squeeze and too uncomfortable sitting less than arms length from strangers
