Fodor's Review

The name of this restaurant means "the cooking place" in Swahili, and it is certainly that. The dining area surrounds two big, wood-burning ovens and a grill area where you can watch cooks in North African–style caps working on your meal. The menu here is more African-inspired than purely African, but it does include authentic flavors in appetizers like peri-peri chicken flatbread and wild boar tenderloin with mealie pap and chakalaka. Menu items often change, but entrées might include scallops with Senegal black-eyed pea salad, or spicy Botswana-style beef short ribs with cassava-potato puree. The restaurant offers dozens of wines by the glass, including a large selection of South African vintages. Ask about the Wednesday wine tastings.
