Boneless peri peri chicken thighs on a bed of coconut rice. The perfect comfort food full of flavor with just the right amount of spice :)

A combination you can't refuse :)

They have a rich menu of meats complimented by a variety of sauces. We tried the JoBurger, Crispy chicken sandwich, tenders, chicken curry and the quarter chicken with rice. For sides we had the coconut rice, fries, mushrooms and vegetable noodles. Please like this review and follow me on Google for the next round of HONEST and UNBIASED reviews

Great Food and Atmosphere. Can be crowded during rush hour so best to get there early. But delicious South African cuisine.

Menu has changed over the past year or so: no more fish tacos, truffle fries, or bone-in Peri Peri chicken, but it's still a great lunch option. Food is fresh, flavorful, and made with high quality ingredients. Definitely try the Peri Peri chicken. The shrimp tacos are cooked in a delicious sauce, even if I'm personally not a fan of a thicker "naan" used as a tortilla. Garlic mushrooms are also delicious.
