Why locals recommend it
They hit South African vibes on the nose at this restaurant, from the authentic food to the eclectic decor and warm service. The name is also an affectionate, traditional name for Nelson Mandela. Their seafood game is especially strong—try huge Mozambican prawns with sweet and spicy peri-peri sauce, or seafood soup with saffron broth. Try the char-grilled steak with “monkey gland” sauce—it’s a red wine reduction with apricots, raisins, and chutney.
