A rich and rewarding celebration of cultures,––experience cuisine and companionship at this theatre of food in the middle of the bustling Cape Town CBD.
Expect an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind, authentic African dining experience. One can’t help but get swept up in the excitement with tall Mali Puppets, live tribal dancing and singing to the rhythmic beating of djembe drums.
Head chef during the day, Mavis Nongongo believes the secret magic behind the cuisine at GOLD Restaurant is that the wonderfully aromatic flavours are enhanced (and not hidden) by the herbs and spices used. Contrary to popular western perceptions of a predominantly meat-based diet, authentic African cooking consists of organically produced whole grains, beans, fresh fruit and vegetables. These dishes epitomize a culture of healthy eating.
