We visited this restaurant with a large group and the banquet we had was a little disappointing. The food, a mix of local and other African dishes, was good but not special but the evening highlight was the dancing and singing provided throughout the night.

Gold is exactly what it says it is, ie, many courses of food from allegedly lots of different cultures. The food is perfectly fine, though nothing to get too excited about. The entertainment is scattered throughout dinner, and they certainly try hard. The whole experience is basically like being at a theme park, it is a show and it feels... More

The restaurant is large and wonderfully decorated The evening started off with a drum ceremony that involves the patrons which is great fun, exhilarating and hard on the hands. The locals who do the entertainment are really great, friendly and get everyone involved. The hand washing follows and then the meal. Local dancers go... More

This was not an easy feet for some, however our instructor was fun but demanding. Eventually, we "all" got it and sounded pretty good. It really was fun. They then lead us... More

A Vibrant Experience from playing the drums to having my face painted with South African flags and being invited up to dance with a lady dancer during the floor show. My wife said not bad for a 75 year old. The food was very interesting and tasty.

Great food, excellent entertainment....loved every minute of it. Highly recommend eating here. We ate at the pop up restaurant which sat larger parties (it was 18 of us) and it was phenomenal.
