If you are looking for some great meat, together with music, some party and a local touch: Mzoli's is the place to go for a Braai! I spent the day there last Sunday with a group of friends: the atmosphere was great with an equal mix of local and tourists !
The concept is simple: you get there, pick your meat and don't have to care about anything anymore: just sit down and have fun! PS; Don't forget to bring some nice wine and glasses!

Believe it nor not, but I did visit the Mzoli's as part of a business trip to South Africa from Germany straight after having landed at the Airport and boy was this a start to the four day South Africa trip. Located right in the middle of the Township Gugulethu did this establishment strangely combine many things into one: a authentic view of Township live, great African barbecue, harmonious being together of locals and tourists - essentially the good side of the South African spirit. Sunday noon can be compared to a really cool, loungy after party with people barbecuing and enjoying drinks, which created a very special vibe and atmosphere! In Retrospect one of the cheapest but coolest venues we visited in Cape Town and surroundings: Thumbs up!

Highly recommend this place. I must admit I was unsure when I got there because of the area but once your in it's a great atmosphere with Afro house music. The locals are really friendly but I would say go as part of a trip so you have transport as it's not advisable to be walking around outside. The food is some of the best food I have ever tasted and cheap drinks. Don't be put off by how it looks as it's a really good party. Expect it to be busy

The queue for entry was insane. granted, this is not the establishments fault as it is quite popular with tourists. Standing in the heat for hours did not appeal to us and we were then referred to Gqudu (sp?) Butchery where the vibe, food and live music performance surely outdid our two hour wait outside Mazola's, waiting to buy entry tickets.
