Soweto's best Shisa Nyama ( traditional BBQ ) restaurant situated at the base of the iconic Orlando Towers. Great place to hang out or even visit for a cold one during or after a tour !!
There is nothing I like less than to see other people eating food that looks better than mine ESPECIALLY when I was told there were only 3 choices...flank steak, pork chops, and lamb. As I was eating my not-that-great flank steak I see one of the servers pulling something out of a pot and slicing it up. Whatâs this? I think to myself. As I watch her put down a plate of delicious looking ribs piled high on a plate at the table behind me, I looked down at my sad piece of meat and wondered why I hadnât been offered the same thing. Well, I can tell you why! Iâm a white tourist and the other customers were not. I will never recommended or go back to this restaurant. ALL tourists should know that you are getting the crappy meat while others are getting the good stuff. PREJUDICE plain and simple plus their beans were too spicy (and I like spicy food), the coleslaw was too goopy, and the corn meal not cooked enough so it was ineffective for picking up food. Terrible food, terrible service, and no atmosphere (outside is fairly interesting but not worth the drive to).

With 120 seats, an outside rooftop deck, open air alley seating and a private lounge, Mootee bends creative boundaries by challenging customer's understanding of food and drink culture. Through serving unique food and creative drinks that form a perspecti
The decor is minimal, but warm and cosy. Service was mostly attentive but this tapered off somewhat. The cocktail menu is quite original in approach. The presentation and resulting drinks are good too. Food was pretty decent. I would return again for drinks.

This place has A LOT of history. The walls are signed with many signatures, some of which youâll recognize, and itâs safe to say this is quite the local institution. The food consists of a variety of filling and wholesome stews, cooked meats, and vegetables. They also offer salads and desserts. We were served buffet style and the choices were many, something tasty to suit everyoneâs taste. I found the beef heart tough and not to my liking, but everything else was flavorful and delicious. The performers that serenaded us were a total delight. The womanâs voice reminds me very much of Ms. Makeba. Itâs funny that coming here had that homey feel one gets when visiting the Deep South in the US.

Our host in South Africa brought us here for lunch on a Saturday. The prices were reasonable and the food was great. There is a decidedly authentic feel to the restaurant and food. The servers are attentive and the street provides an energetic backdrop. Eat here and walk down the street to visit the street vendors and Mandela Museum.

Sakhumzi Restaurant is located in Soweto - the largest black township in South Africa. Vilakazi Street, the tourist Mecca of Soweto, is where Sakhumzi opens its doors to anyone and everyone - from locals, to tourists and even corporate groups. Sakhumzi is
They are strategically located next to Desmond Tutu's house and within walking distance of the Mandela House. The food is always piping hot and the variety is fabulous. My favourite is the tripe and the pumpkin pap they serve. I never go to Jburg without stopping here to eat lunch.

I was very fortunate to visit Robby's Place along with 51 graduate Master of Science in Finance students from Georgetown University. We enjoyed outstanding food and outstanding service. Robby, our host, is a gentleman and a special person. I can't say enough about the quality of the food. Definitely the real deal!

This restaurant is in the middle of Soweto. Perhaps best visited during the daytime. Our hostess started this restaurant from nothing and but it up to be a fine employer of very nice people. The food is what Soweto residents eat on a daily basis. It is a buffet style. Native dancers entertained us from without (street dancers). It is across the street from a house where Nelson Mandela lived.

The menu was good, and the ambience was great, but the highlight of our lunch was really the Waitron. Such an absolute pleasure! He was knowledgeable and witty and had an amazing sense of humour. He also suggested beautiful dishes that were the highlight of our meal!
