Fodor's Review

From the food and decor to the music and live entertainment, Moyo is strongly African in theme. The focus of the rich and varied menu is pan-African, incorporating tandoori cookery from northern Africa, Cape Malay influences such as lentil bobotie, Moroccan-influenced tasty tagines (stews with lamb, chicken, fish, or seven vegetables), and ostrich burgers and other dishes representing South Africa. Diners are often entertained by storytellers, face painters, and musicians. The restaurant has six locations in South Africa. At night or in winter, the branch at Melrose Arch is the best bet of the two Jo'burg outposts. In summer and during the day, the Zoo Lake branch (1 Prince of Wales Dr., Parkview, Tel. 011/646–0058) is the nicest.
