Stopped in at the Karoo as I suddenly got the craving for some food from home. Had the pap and wors. Wors was good although just one section of sausage. I wish they would offer it as an add on item.

Authenic African food. Chef is from South Africa. Food is excellent. This restaurant is a great change of pace from fried seafood. Peri Peri chicken is my absolute favorite

When it is time for a change from pizza, tuna, or lobster - try this authentic African delight. What many don't realize is that South African food is a amalgam of Indian, Game and BBQ flavors. Great SA wines and wonderful service abounds. Highly recommended.

For myself, coming from London, it was not that expensive. Here we pay a lot more for good cooking. I think Karoo is a step up from your average fry-up and prices will reflect this.
