We were celebrating Father's Day. Unfortunately they had ran out of the beef so WE had to order something else. It was good but it wasn't what WE came for.
Maybe next time..

I was disappointed by the limited menu because most of my favorite dishes were not on it. I would probably not go back if they are only offering a limited menu.

We love Peli Peli. The only thing we had issue with is the VERY large increase in drink prices without prior notice.

This was our first visit to Peli Peli and we were very impressed. Our friends who joined us had been there before and pointed out some favorites from the menu. Great service and tasty food. We plan on returning.

Calamari was uneventful. Rubbery. Prawn cakes were over cooked. Waiter pushed an expensive $70 bottle of wine that wasn’t worth the price at all. All in all, it was a disappointment.

We arrived about 20 minutes late but still seated immediately. The waiter was very good, explaining everything about the restaurant and menu items. Just the right amount of attention when we needed him.
Food was amazing, authentic South African fare and delightful new tastes, excellent presentation.
We especially liked the bobotie and killer prawns.

Normally have a better experience, this time waitress was distant with us, no recognition of special occasion even though was noted on reservation. Food was OK, Carrot bredie was chunkier than normal, specially sausage had course ground spices that were not pleasant to chew on.

We have attended Peli Peli multiple times a year since it opened in the Vintage, and always - we have thoroughly enjoyed our experience. For some reason, this was different - a 1/4" to 1/2" fishbone was discovered in the stuffed mushrooms. My wife ordered her favorite - the steak medallions medium well and all were overcooked. Ironically, the table was not level (wobbly). So sorry for the review . . .

We had a 7:15p reservation. We still had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, which is quite out of character for Peli Peli, and was somewhat disappointing while we waited. But after we were seated, the experience was top notch, as expected. And the food is always beyond amazing.

Great restaurant. The service was amazing from the second we walked in. The hostess was nice and sweet and our server Collins was the best server I have ever had at any resturant. His knowledge of the menu was amazing. The food was scrumptious and mouth watering. Great place. Will be back. Thanks Collins!!

Our group of 6 was seated in a separate, quieter area that was perfect for conversation. We were so fortunate to have Collins as our waiter. He was very professional, made wonderful recommendations, and choreographed our meal exquisitely. The food was lovely....seafood and beef espetada, lamb chops, South African sampler, Cape Town skillet.....all enjoyed. And the sticky toffee pudding was amazing. Collins is reason enough to visit but the food makes it an extra special dining experience.

We asked to be seated outside, but the area was bare, and looked closed. The tables were wet, worn and not set. It was very unattractive and we almost left. It would have been a mistake. We decided instead to stay and had a wonderful dinner inside. We had a flat bread appetizer, carrot soup, kale salad (forget everything you know about kale and try it), the South African shrimp, and a wonderful curried chicken dish. All of it was excellent.

First of all, our waiter, Jamal was exceptional! Very friendly, accommodating, patient, and he was charming and informative, too!!! We had 2 birthday gals in our party, so he arranged for Chef Paul to come out and talk with us, bringing us each a glass of champagne and passion fruit - yum! The food was excellent, as usual - we all got something different and topped it off with a huge piece of
Sticky Toffee topped Cheesecake to share. We had a delightful time and will be back!
