Loved this steakhouse as a choice for our one night in Johannesburg close to the airport. Tried lots of local fare and loved everything Try the biltlong (dried cured meat) that is a lot like beef jerky but juicier. Love the experience. Chakalaka sauce is very good and super spicyy for those that like spice

I was expecting better, but still reasonable and quite good prices when converted into US$. Service adequate and offered lots of African game meats

We took a warthog expert with us. That wasn't warthog, it was pork. The springbok was lamb. The kudu appeared to be kudu. For 175R you expect more than less than "Spurs" quality, dodgy gritty onion rings and plain mash. You expect something special. I didn't eat the pork, it was tough, dry and without a sauce. Shameful and disappointing.

We had a nice relaxed atmosphere and could do some excellent business exchange. It was not too loud so we could understand each other clearly (sometimes difficult if people speak different accents).

From reading all the positive reviews, I expected more. Food was quiet average. Ordered chicken which really didn't have much flavour.

Business dinner for 20 people. The two waiters did an excellent job. No orders were messed up, drinks came when they were needed. Food was top class. Not one complaint from the table, which is remarkable taking account the different orders on steaks. Dessert was presented in a totally new manner - actual dessert examples on one big massive tray.... More

Given its location, we were pleasantly surprised on the quality of their steak. Definitely worthwhile to try.

After looking around the food court we decided to give Tribes a go as there were some exotic menu offerings. Upon being seated we were escorted to the meat case where you could pick the piece of meat you would like grilled to perfection. Looking at the meat in the case activated my saliva glands and called for a great... More

Grill restaurant in "African" style in a large mall. The food is allright. Only (white) tourists are eating here. I would have rated it 4 stars, but cut it down to 2 because of the waiter who aggressively demanded a tip which we didn't want to give because he had been unfriendly all evening.

Thank Maud1986
