Very interesting decor and fun entertainment, but tour groups seemed to be coming and going all night long. Some of the food was okay, but nothing to write home about. I don't need to go back again...

It is a very nice authentic African restaurant in Cape town close to Waterfront. You have a 12 course dinner, tastes all around Africa, delicious food!! Aside to food, you learn playing Djembe drums and enjoy African songs and entertainment.

Who would have thought that such a gem existed in a not so great corner of Cape Town right opposite the bus station? We managed to park right in front of the restaurant and the car guard was so helpful to my handicapped spouse. Upon...More

Gold is a gem of a restaurant. We started with taking a drum lesson which was a hoot! Food was fabulous as was the wine selection! Staff was wonderful and entertainment was lively and fun! They also painted your face if you wished. Couldn't have...More
