Fantastic all around!
it was a while since the last time there. Some new faces, many familiar individuals. The food is excellent and tasty, as well as the cocktails. Waiters are attentive and smiling. I confess: I am biased. I love this place. But I cannot less happy for this gem discovered few years ago.
Mandiba is the affectionate nickname for Nelson Mandela and this rustic Fort Greene gem is a fitting tribute to him. Go if you are interested in sampling South African hand-crafted slow cooked authentic peasant food. We loved it. The combination of spice and palate unique to this part of the world.
We loved every dish we spilt. The samosas were served with the most delicious pepper and spices which I believe is called atchar-not hot just but extremely flavorful. The ostrich carpaccio was fresh, tender and yummy. Chicken livers peri-peri were absolutely delicious with the perfect mix of spices. We also split the Oxtail stew which we elected to have served with roti-loved every single morsel of this dish. Oh and the two drinks we had were amazing! My only wish is that Madiba is not right down the street from my house.
This was my second trip to Madiba...I had a great time, the owner was very nice! Food great plus the drinks strong but very good. ...I would strongly recommend this place to others. Btw, I will definitely be going to the location in Harlem....Yessssssss!
The food was soooo good. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and he said it was the best food he has had in a long time. The ambiance was great as well and if you like to jam to Black music while you eat, this is the place to be.
Food was perfect. However, our waitress was not so helpful. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody. delicious food but poor service.
Loved the food! I had the prawns and they were delicious. I would definitely recommend.
Great and unique food that was perfect to share. The staff was the perfect balance of leisurely and efficient.
The lobster tail was substantial and the fish special was delicious. Ambience was interesting. Service was pleasant and attentive. Only shortcoming for me was the lack of adequate A/C.
