Unique foods, completely delicious, and exciting and different. Loved this place. The honey and Brie appetizer is outstanding.

I could tell you all of the reasons why I love this place, but that would take forever. All you need to know is that this place is amazing. It has some of the best sliders I have ever eaten. The road runner is delicious, and the mud hut is perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth. I have eaten at countless places all of the city, and this is still one of the best places I have eaten at.

Excellent food. Don't believe some of the earlier reviews. They cleared ordered the wrong stuff or came with preconceptions. Great salad and coconut polenta. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently went to South Africa on our honeymoon and we were so excited to find this restaurant in NYC!! We had such a great experience there - the food was excellent and the decor seemed very authentic. We can't wait to go back and bring our friends!!

My husband is an ex South African & we really wanted to like Braai & were realistic with our expectations, this is NY not SA. Braai disappointed on many levels, chiefly taste & authenticity! The Samossa's were soggy & the filling pasty. The Boerewors was skinny & very overcooked - where was the plump, thick, juicy wors found all over SA? The Briyani' was all rice with very little protein to be found. The Pap (Polenta) wasnt bad, but its friend the "tomato gravy" was a poor imposter, at best. The slap chips were an insult to the original version. The Peri-Peri Chicken Livers were good and so were the Ribs, however Ribs could have come from anywhere in the world (that wasnt the tangy Monkey Gland sauce found all over SA). All in all a poor reflection on what is otherwise a very colorful and delectable cuisine. Very disappointing.

The nice decor of the place gives you the feeling of being in South Africa. However, upon being seated we had to wait a while before we were given a menu. Apart from the presence of 4 staff at the medium size restaurant, it seem no one else, except for our waiter was able to do much of anything else. Our waiter, Angel, told us his name at least 3 times during our approximately45 minutes lunch. The hostess, who got us seated, was at first seemed reluctant to help Angel who was a bit overwhelmed in attending to the five or six tables were filled at the time. The runner is not much of a help to us as customer nor to the rest of the staff at the establishment. I first, asked him for a drink menu, he just pointed t Angel and grunted something unintelligible. So, we then asked the hostess to bring us the drink menu. When my food came, it comes with a series of condiment. So, I asked the runner who brought them, what the different condiments are. Again, he grunted something unintelligible and pointed at our waiter Angel. The food, was alright. Nothing spectacular and forgettable. I doubt that it is a good representation of South African food. The South African wines that we had was great. Slightly earthy with a clean finish. The dessert is also forgettable. It is unfortunate, when a place that sounds and look promisingly good just doesn't deliver.
