    I really enjoyed Chef Mmabatho’s tasting menu showcasing millet in every dish creatively. The food was very delicious, carefully thought out and beautifully presented. The wine pairing also went very well with each dish. Service was very good as well and all staff were extremely friendly. Next time I’m in Cape Town I’ll be sure to make another visit!

    Our fine dining experience at Emazulwini far exceeded our expectations. The food is incredible and is a true credit to the chef. We were recommended by a couple we met to eat here and we are so grateful to them for recommending such a wonderful place. The service from all of the staff was amazing and we left very happy. Thank you so much

    My mom and I went here for dinner and absolutely loved it. The attention to detail is spot on and the food was phenomenal. Great flavor combinations and extremely precise plating.

    Firstly, I love the concept. It feels like the owner/chef takes her clients seriously and takes great care with presentation. The flavours were new and interesting, but the food was colder than I expected. It was overall a good experience!

    They are promoting Zulu cuisine in the most fine dining approach imaginable. It was oh-so-tasty and totally under priced, maybe in part the result of being on the outskirts of a food market, though still create a lovely and intimate atmosphere. The wine list is short but works great with the offerings, excellent choice. The staff couldn't be kinder and more welcoming, I've recommended this restaurant to all my friends possibly planning trips to Cape Town. They can certainly hold their own in competition with CT's Michelin landscape.
