Africa Restaurants: 143 reviews and 458 photos

This is, quite simply, the best bufet in Africa. It?s also the most expensive, but may be worth it if you drink. The restaurant offers a buffet every night as well as theme nights on Saturday (Arabic night), Monday (Tex Mex night) and Tuesday (Asian night). The friendly staff bring you into a large hall filled with wonderful smells and you are seated at your table. The drinks order is taken first. Ah! That?s right ? free wine & beer. Yep, all you can drink & eat. Then there?s the food! Sushi, hot meat roasts, cooking stations, wonderful varieties of vegetables dishes, wonderful fish and cooking stations. The cooking stations make all sorts of goodies for you the way you want it. There is also a huge salad choice and the dessert are is the size of a small restaurant itself. Yes, you are eating and drinking at the best buffet in Africa.

This place is not cheap. $45 for normal buffet nights and $50 for the theme nights. I sat and drank beer for 3 hours along with my meal ? no questions were asked. Its good value if you are a drinker.

Favorite Dish:
I enjoyed the Tex Mex night. I did mix fajitas and other Mexican dishes with sushi and curried fish. Fantastic. And of course ? Mexican beer (pictured).
