We went to Boabab to celebrate my father in-laws birthday. This is still one of the better looking venues in Menlyn Mall and it just "feels" more mature. The service was good but at some point the constant checking up on our table became intrusive. Between the waitor and management we had about 10 visits to the table to check... More

From the start the service was good with the waiter being attentive throughout. I had the rump steak and it was prepared to perfection. The other guests seemed to enjoy their food except for the chococino. It might have been personal preference but the lady commented that the combination of the chocolate and coffee did not work.

Took my family there to celebrate my daughters graduation. The service was beyond superb, the food was very delicious. It was a great choice to create a beautiful memory and the perfect ending to a great day.

My wife and I went for her birthday to have dinner. We often go to Baobab for "tasty" events. The Matre'D was friendly and efficient. Soon after being seated, drink orders were taken and a short while later, we received our starters. I had the mushroom soup as starter since I wanted to have the bone marrow rib eye and... More

I have often walked past this restaurant. I am not one for dining in big shopping centres. However, this was a business dinner and so I was obliged to try it out. What a surprise! Once inside one forgets that one is in a glitzy shopping centre, the decor is stylish and hides the outside quite well. The service is... More

Such a shame. This place has so much potential. My daughter and I went there for dinner on a Sunday late afternoon. The decor is very good and the view is great but if you are sitting outside and some petrolhead with his GTi decides to gun it the noise is horrible. The service was lacking. We had to ask... More

The atmosphere and decor is very classy and elegant. This restaurant offers Al-Fresco dining with a great view if the city. Good wine and cocktails. The food is good, mediocre steak and the service was poor. This can be attributed to our waiter as everyone else seemed to be having a good time. A lovely place to have dinner with... More

Hadn't been to Baobab in some time before taking friends there for a post-early-movie dinner. I ordered the rib-eye, mid-rare, the other 4 diners each something different. Problems began when the food began to arrive. It was about 5 minutes between when the first three meals arrived and the last two did, along with my wife's side of potatoes. I... More
