We celebrated our anniversary here. I made mention when I booked the reservation in open table. The hostess greeted us and congratulated us too. Noticed that prices had gone up since our last visit over a year ago. I was disappointed that they did not recognize our special day. No dessert or even champagne. While I know that is not... More

This has been my favorite restaurant since the first time I went, a couple of years ago. I've been a couple of times since with slightly varying experiences. When I first went, this was the only Peli Peli open. The owner/chef visited every table and personally watched as his waiters performed their duties. He would also personally answer any questions...

Joined friends for lunch at this unusual restaurant featuring S African and European cuisine. The service was impeccable and accommodating. We enjoyed appetizers of baby kale salad, ginger carrot soup, Italian flatbread, and bacon wrapped scallops. All were excellent. Entrees included Espetada (think shish kebob), S African Samosa with curried chicken, and medallions of beef. For dessert, coffee and sticky... More

We went here because it was offering a different type of food. The food was really good. It is South African dishes for the most part and we tried several. YUM! We enjoyed ourselves. It was a bit odd to come in from the mall side as all you see is a long row of tables and chairs and it... More

This awesome little place just opened by our house. The manager is super helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and what might have allergens. Almost everything they have gluten free which is like a dream to anyone with gluten intolerance! The food is good and they are quick! I recommend the porkbelly and the fajitas. The cauliflower and mushrooms are... More

Second trip to Peli Peli for a long casual lunch with a friend. Neither of us was familiar with the menu, so we relied on the excellent advice from our server. He fully explained the dishes he recommended and we absolutely enjoyed everything. Save room for dessert.

This restaurant was great! The ambiance was great, food great, staff/service great. Location wise it was a bit challenging to find in the mall, but I'm not from the area so I will attribute me not finding the restaurant easily to that. If you love foods with exotic spices and great strong drinks, this is the place for you.

The service might be fairly good but a bit too pricey for the type of food they serve. Maybe I was just expecting more because of the reviews this restaurant is receiving but there is really nothing exceptional with the taste and the presentation of their entrees to merit the astronomical price they charge. The sitting arrangement also gives you... More
