The most incredible food. Only ever had amazing meals here, and I eat here pretty regularly. Everything is very fresh, healthy and delicious. It’s now called Olami, but it offers pretty much the same food.

Thank Nimzat

so you choose from meat balls, chicken in prunes, salmon etc that gets microwaved hot and then 3 salads from an array of 10 - 15 different dishes - particularly like the aubergine - Despite the hot part of the dish being microd, overall the food is really nice but I can only give 3 stars because the food is all left on a table in the summer heat and my friend and I have stopped going because we were always getting a runny tummy in the summer - This place is small but busy doing take-aways as well as stool seating for probably 8 inside and tables outside so not big - but it does seem successful so why they havent invested in proper cooling over the food who knows - amazed it passes health and safety being left out for a few hours. I did used to eat here frequently and a plate used to be R65 and pretty good value - Price went up and they stopped providing tap water blaming the water crisis and one can now only "buy" bottled water - crazy I know and last time I visited - vote with my feet on such a silly policy. Very nice staff and always tip well

Delicious and super fresh food. It's like a healthy home cooked lunch.. get there early as every time I've been they always run out of most dishes, pity they don't make more. Although maybe that's the beauty of this place. Staff are friendly
