We were both females and visited in the Late evening. The route to the place and the ambience was very local and did not really felt safe. The shuttle service is limited if you are not coming in your own car. They have nothing vegetarian in their menu. Be here with your better half if you wish to have couple... More

We ate dinner at the Shebeen. Did not know what to expect. We sat outside next to the bonfire- it was great! no menu and little information from waitress but once we received the food- after a long wait- it was very well done and tasty. A good taste of Africa- we lovedit !!!!

We wanted to visit the cultural village and shebeen as part of our day visit to Sun City. We arrived at the cultural village first but there was not much to see, unless you pay the prescribed tariff for the tour. We decided to skip the tour and instead have a drink at the Shebeen. We expected something different but... More

We had an evening at the Shebeen and the food and service was very good. It is very traditional and gives a great insight as to what the local dishes are..

We visited the Shebeen at Sun City 16 August 2016 while staying at Kwa-Maritane. What an experience. Dimed lights, juke box blairing away in the corner and a few pool tables. Real african ambience. Beer only available in quarts. A short daily menu and very affordable. A must to visit. It is situated behind the cultural village at Sun City.

we did have a good time here, but our conference party had booked out the whole place. Staff were very good, food was plentiful and ok. It's not somewhere i'd choose to go, but everyone had a good time
