This place is outstanding, the food is tasty, filling and healthy - not to mention happy. We ate here during their weekend buffet where you fill a medium or a large size plate for a set price. The flavours were delicious and there were so many choices that I couldn't try everything. Highly recommended is the pizza, fresh spring rolls,... More

Leafy Greens is a vegetarian/organic restaurant set in the gardens adjoining Casalinga restaurant and wedding venue. while the setting is tranquil and lush, its is the food which is the focus. As a typical South African male, to me, a meal is only a meal if it has meat! vegetables and salads are what go WITH the meat, not a... More

All vegetarians gather together we have found common ground. This is the perfect spot. I as a vegetarian I felt uncomfortable as this is a venue where all catering is done with me in mind..........the guilt disappears when the other guests dig in and forget what they are eating........delicious.....delicious......delicious.....

I was not impressed. And I found it very expensive, too much! Lots of vegetarian dishes and salad, but somehow basic service - actually a self-service place! I couldn't even have some bread with my salad :( Anyway the place is nice...

A lovely setting for a restaurant. Ambiance, friendly staff, lovely decor and well presented food make this restaurant a definite must for vegans and vegetarians to visit and enjoy. Lunch is a buffet - a smorgasbord for vegans.

We are carnivorous as a family and have for some time now moved to a gluten free (as possible) and predominantly lactose free diet. What this restaurant does is broaden our horizon as to what is possible with vegetables without sacrificing taste and visual allure. My kids loved the Sunday buffet, which is the top endorsement going round. Coming from... More

We found the venue to be very relaxed with most of the seating being outdoors. The lunch buffet was extensive with many dishes to choose from. If you are net a Vegan though you may find some challenges with the menu. This is hardcore Vegan.

I visit leafy greens often and truly adore the place, their food is devine and I am a regular visitor to their shop. the only constructive criticism I have is the service from the waiters, they are very slow and not very attentive to customers, even late afternoon when the restaurant is quite.
