The food was amazing and the service was great! There was a long wait time, but it was worth the wait! We got the meat plate and the chicken pie. Everything was delicious, I especially enjoyed the chicken pie and the maple sausage.

Must try lamb chops and meat pies! Also, cheesecake is the perfect dessert! Don’t forget to make reservation otherwise it’s gonna be a long wait.

This south african restaurant is a good and genuine find in the big city of Seoul. Think Lamb, bangers and meaty food pies. Limited amount of seats so reservation is recommended.
