There’s a reason why this legendary Gugulethu joint has received a visit from famous TV Chef Jamie Oliver – It’s the real deal! Believe the hype. At Mzoli’s you’ll be delighted to find a great selection of meat as well as chicken wings being braaied on the coals. Like any respectable Shisa Nyama (or barbeque) there’s pap, a great vibe and cutlery is kept to a minimum.
