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

I enjoyed the Kingklip with spice. It was our anniversary and the outdoor seating was great and less crowded; just right for conversation.

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.

a party came in just as our food was served- VERY distracting, loud, and taking constant photos - basically ruined our quiet family dinner/birthday
complained to host stand - nothing was done and our server did nothing to control the situation either - the group should have been moved to an more private area in the dining room - plenty of space to do that - disappointing

My experience was amazing as always. I’ve never had a disappointing visit. The food is absolutely amazing, the staff is hospitable and seem to genuinely care about the experience had by each visitor. As for the drinks, you are being naive if you think you’re only going to being to have one because they are DELICIOUS!

I have been at 10 Degree South now about 5 times and the service and the food never change, it is always excellent. I come here to eat the ostrich, which is always prepared perfectly, this time was no exception. We'll be back.

Excellent service with traditional South African cuisine. Great wine list of regional wine from South Africa and California with interesting house cocktail creations. The Ostrich and Curry were wonderful.
