We love the food but I feel it is over priced for what we got. None of the dishes had vegetables. Compared to other higher end places I feel that you get less for your money here. However the food is amazing as well as the Ambience! We will continue to visit just won’t take the entire family.

Vegetables served with fish dinner were so mushy that they could have been baby food. Waiter did not come back after food was served to check on us. Noticed him outside laughing with valet parking attendant. Had to flag him down when he walked back in to request al dente veggies like the ones my date had. By the time the veggies came, my fish and rice were cold. I ate some of the veggies and wrapped. We were shocked to receive a bill with an extra $5 charge for the replacement veggies. Makes no sense, poor management. Also, we were told that they would have live music and that was not the case. Not sure if it was an off night or the place is overrated.

This was a very nice dining experience for us. Service was very good and very attentive. We had the prawns and the lamb chops. The prawns were huge and tasty and the lamb was excellent. It is a very interesting restaurant layout for fine dining. We will definitely be back.

I made reservations for dinner and told them it was for a special occasion - our anniversary. They said complementary champagnes are included. When we got there we were forgotten after being seated and I had to get up to find someone to help us. They forgot to give us the champagne which I only remembered after leaving. The main disappointment though was the food. We both got the Durban curry and both of us thought it was a bunch of mixed flavors that didn’t go well together - not sure what they were aiming for. The spices were not mixed in well and we would bite down on a pieces of cardamom and have this overwhelming taste in our mouth. Appetizers and side dishes were okay. I think it will be a while before we try any South African cuisine again. My husband and I are both foodies so I feel my opinion of this place is fairly valid. Once we got service the server was very friendly. Maybe other entrees are good, but overall would not recommend this place.

We hadn't been to 10 Degrees South since before the pandemic but will be a much more frequent guest in the future. The unusual selections, flavors and quality were excellent good. The service was great in spite of a couple of minor incidents, the ambiance was perfect in the open screened area and will definitely make this a more regular part of our dining routine.

Another great dinner at 10 Degrees South. Came with a couple of friends and we enjoyed everything we had to eat and drink. We were a little disappointed that 2 of the 3 Rosé options on the menu weren't in stock, in addition to the Kingklip entrée. The private room near our table had a large party who were quite loud, and it was a little distracting. Wish they had kept their door closed to the rest of the restaurant for noise purposes.

We had reservations for a table but upon arriving at the bar, decided to stay and dine at bar to listen to the live musician. Mia the bartender was so fantastic. My s.o. is not drinking alcohol so she made him the most delicious mocktail I have ever tasted. It has lychee syrup. I ended up asking her to make me one as well! I was blown away by how addictive the drink was. We had the mussels. And you definitely should order a garlic bread roll with the mussels. We also had biltong and later got the fish. Everything from the moment we entered the building to the moment we left was excellent. I am going to be back soon

This was our first time here, celebrating our 26th Wedding Anniversary, and we were "completely wowed." The spices for all of the dishes were light, unique, and very tasty. My wife enjoyed the Cape Kingklip fish entree, and I loved the Ostrich entree as well. We especially enjoyed the Calamari appetizer - having it grilled over a bed of saffron rice was a wonderful switch as opposed to the normal (and much heavier) fried options. We are already looking forward to a return trip!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at 10 Degrees South. What a beautiful decor and ambiance.
This was not our first visit there but it was for our guests; they loved it and said they would be back. They often drive by the restaurant but had never noticed it.

Very enjoyable dining experience! After our visit to South Africa a couple of years ago, we were pleased to find authentic South African food in Atlanta. Spring rolls , Chicken livers .And kebabs with basmati rice were all top notch!

We could not fault the food. Delicious and flavorful! A real taste of home.

But... the service was sub par. Not very attentive, we kept having to ask for water. Some of the sides were wrong and an extra side was added.

Most amazing dinner! The Mussels never disappoint. The broth was so delicious, we had to have another order of bread loaf to soak up every last drop. We ordered the lamb chops which were so thick and cooked with a divine sauce. Also ordered the shrimp curry and the combination of flavors in that dish was too good to describe. Can't wait to go again soon. Enjoyed the Spellbound Petite Syrah Blend Wine too. Just a great dining experience.

Everything was great food and service. My only issue was that the staff did not wear face mask. We are in the middle of a pandemic and the staff should have on mask for their along with the guest safety.
