The place has a very african vibe. The food was lovely. There are plenty of choices and a vast selection of different meats. You are also able to get vegetarian, and I have a tribes salad followed by a pudding. Overall a good night out

Different types of dishes and meats, always well prepared and done to perfection, the atmopsphere fits in with the whole African theme. one tends to linger much longer and before you know its its been a few hours since you walked in the door. staff are always friendly and can explaine any dish in details.

Oh my word!!! I'm blown away at the level of service and quality of food I've been served today. Ambiance is of an African feel and I'm feeling so at home right now. Been a long time since I've been so impressed with a restaurant here at Emperors Palace. And the wine is excellent...true South African style. Well done Tribes,... More

Great meat restaurant if you don't mind paying very high prices for a good quality meal. Lunch of fillet steaks and cold drinks x 4 = zar 880.00. Recommended.

I asked for Caesar salad. Apparently no one here knows what that is. I got a house salad with mayo sauce. I asked for Blue cheese sauce. I got cheese sauce. I asked for filet MEDIUM. I got well done. I wanted a place to talk. I got loud drums and "entertainment." The wine was about 4 times the price... More

Tribes has an amazing selection of meat. Game meat, special cuts of beef, lamb and chicken. Great ambiance, good service and a great selection of wines. Emperors offers safe and secure parking, the casino is a nice alternative for after dinner activities.

We had dinner here and my husband, who is not normally very adventurous when it comes to dining choices, had the tasting plate with a number of different meats on it. He loved it. I just had a steak and it was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend.

I had steak, pap and sauce. Not satisfied with the steak because my steak was full of tendons and a bit chewy. Service could be much improve. I love the atmosphere and the comfortable chairs.

The decoration is inspired in African tribes, easy to guess by the name of this restaurant. One of the best steakhouse I have been. Everything was just perfect. Although they serve exotic meat like ostrich and kudu, they have regular cow steak too and it is really good.
