They cater for everybody's needs. My husband ate a half peri peri chicken with chips was absolutely delicious. I had fish and prawn combo, was heaven. Excellent service from the staff

This little place remains one of my favorites for a peri peri baby chicken. The JHB branches simply can't match the original.

If you've never tried Mozambican seafood or chicken ... You need to immediately. No other country's cuisine has done such justice to prawns, chicken, calamri etc. It is one of life's great culinary experiences to be had and this place does it really well. The decor is rustic African beer hall (if that makes sense) with a massive famous show... More

If you do not go to Mo-Zam-Bik whilst in Ballito you are truly missing out on an excellent African experience. The Ambience, food and drinks are yummy and the staff super friendly and helpful. Definately in my top 5 for eating out. Loved it.

Awesome seafood, brilliant chicken. Perhaps the best place to have chicken that tickles your taste buds. A delight of prawns and seafood that lingers in your mind for a long time. Thinking you should just go back and redo the tasting. Just to be sure you still like peri-peri chicken. Or is it the prawns. Mmmm.

We ate their a while ago while or kitchen was being completed. We ordered prawns, fish and calamari. The prawns and fish were completely overcooked but the calamari was delicious. The manager did fix the prawns though, so good for him. Service is often absent and the restaurant looks a little too rustic (when it comes to stickiness of table... More

I went to Mozambik for dinner and loved my time! Great service and the most incredible food. I give a 10/10 for the chicken.
