Madiba Restaurant

Madiba Restaurant Review

Named for and inspired by Nelson Mandela, the borough's only South African restaurant (and the city's first), is styled after a traditional shebeen, a local bar known for its convivial atmosphere and lively conversation. This eatery—with its wooden benches, colorful African-theme paintings, and quirky folk art—has staple curries and stews, as well as offbeat options such as ostrich carpaccio and spicy peri-peri prawns.
