Reviewed 7 April 2022

This restaurant is comedy material. Everything, from the coffee upwards, it's overcooked or poorly made. We first tried a cheesecake. Terrible. Well, the coffee was worse, just some kind of diluted water from a machine. We went against our instincts and gave them a second...opportunity with the dinner buffet. NOTHING was good. The chicken was hard, felt like plastic. Then we tried the beef, but it turned out that the chicken was the star of the menu. The side dishes were appalling. Never a soda tasted so good in my life. The service is just okay, really just some waiters taking your order and bringing the food. Please show some respect to the tourist. Charge more if you like, but sell something edible. As I said in the review of the resort, the food is barely preferable to hunger. Time for change.More

The whole atmosphere inside the restaurant was good, despite the huge number of people eating indoors and the slow service. Food was not bad at all taking into account the circumstances. I feel it might have been better had there not been such an "overbooked"...situation.More

The restaurant is in a lovely setting and the tables inside are well laid out. The food however was not good. The buffet food was not hot or of good quality The a la Carte menu is limited. The snack menu was ok with Pizza,...Burgers and Sandwiches not African food The staff were very helpful and friendly which made up for the food. There is a cigar lounge and bar which is quite pleasant. The veranda outside was pleasant with views of the mountains and there are several walking trails from here.More

When we arrived we witnessed plenty of staff members who felt it more important to look after themselves instead of us, the customer. To start of with, we had to fetch the menu ourselves. When we eventually were able to place our order we had...to wait a good hour for our food to arrive despite several inquiries. We were told that we had to wait as there were other orders that were placed before us (there was only one other table occupied besides us). When our food eventually arrived the chicken was still raw, the prawns looked like they were cooked the day before. The appearance of our meal was unappetizing. Under normal circumstances we would have declined this meal however we were starving and forced this meal down our throats. We cannot in good faith recommend this restaurant to anybody. We have eaten at numerous around South Africa and this is the worst we have ever experienced and we will never come back again.More

We had lunch at Kadisi restaurant and it was truly a train smash. Firstly, we were sitting closest to the buffet table but opted to order from the menu. When the kids had their food ordered everything was PICKED from the buffet which was just...ridiculous. Bread was stale and bacon overcooked. Drinks were a joke as well. Ordered coffee that had to be returned four times because they didn't pay enough attention to do it right the first time. And to anybody please don't order the yogurt smoothie. It was basically left over yogurt and dried pieces of fruit from the buffet that we expected to pay R40 for. I'm not going to go into full detail with the rest of the food we ordered but if this review is anything to go by, rather spend your well earned money on something you can make yourself. Thanks to the manager who was too busy to come and see us and whoever is in charge of this resort's F&B department must go back to school.More

This is a large restaurant in the Forever Resort with plenty of parking space outside. It comprises a spacious dining area, split in two to both the left and right of the entrance, plus an outside patio area. However, when we visited in June it...was too chilly to take advantage of the patio area, but I would imagine it offers good views from the deck. Inside the left-hand dining area appeared to be unused, but doubtless is kept busy in the high season. We therefore used the other dining area, which was comfortable with well-spaced tables with a nice log fire in the centre to give a cosy atmosphere on a chilly evening. They offer a buffet at 170 rand per person, or an a la carte menu. The buffet appeared to have a good selection with three meat dishes (one pork, one chicken and one beef), but not being a great fan of pre-cooked buffet meals we went for the a la carte. Three of us had the rump steak (two as part of the surf and turf option), while one had the cheeseburger. The steaks were OK, but all a bit chewy although the calamari ‘surf’ element was nicely cooked and crisped. The burger was also OK – a fairly standard burger with nothing to complain about but nothing special. The service was good and friendly. Not being familiar with SA prices I have no idea whether it was good value or not, but it seemed reasonable to me at 135 rand for surf & turf, 115 rand for a plain rump steak (plus 25 rand for a sauce) and 70 rand for the burger, with 500 ml draft Castle at 28 rand. All in all we enjoyed our meal. However I find rating difficult as the restaurant was very nice and the food good, but Trip Advisor for some unknown reason does not provide a rating for good. As (for me) the rating of a restaurant must be heavily based on the food rather than the ambience then I could not say the meals were sufficiently above good to warrant a ‘Very Good’ rating. On that basis I have rated it as ‘Average’ with the understanding that this means good, but nothing more and nothing detrimental.More
