Decor and atmosphere perfect! Our waiter was helpful to explain the menu. Portions were bigger than we expected who could complain about that! Only thing which is out of their control is parking is terrible in this section of the mall.

The restaurant has three rooms. We ate in the middle room with the unusual ceiling. I had the lamb chops with two sides. They were excellent and tasted so good that I did not use the mint sauce. The menu has food from different cultures....More

Great cuisine. Different style. Delicious food. A South African style that’s really an international fusion with great taste. I taste the calamari, the lamb rack, the mango cole slaw, the chicken livers, ... all of them with great flavors and taste. The place has a...More

Came here with a co worker while on a business trip and left very impressed. You cannot tell for a second that you are in a mall when inside the restaurant. The design is very relaxing, quiet and neat looking. We started out with the...More
