It took us four or five tries to finally get to Karoo at a time when they were open (closed on Tuesdays) and had space, but we're grateful to have persisted. The atmosphere is comfortably safari: colorful loops of African cloth prints (music frozen in time) covered the ceiling, and the entire decor speaks of South Africa. The service is professional and efficient; our waitress steered us vigorously away from low spots on the menu. The peanut soup was spicy and tasty; the "monkey" ribs (actually pork) were TERRIFIC; and the Cape Malay stew (I got the shrimp version) was rich and exciting. All of us got beers or mixed drinks that were tasty and potent. We'll come back and make this a regular haunt.
