The menu offers a range of popular South African dishes, with a contemporary twist and includes appetising starters, fresh salads, soups, succulent meat and poultry dishes, fish and seafood and truly decadent desserts.

All this, combined with a comprehensive wine list that includes Champagne and dessert wines, the elegance of the venue and attentive service, makes for a truly remarkable dining experience.

    My husband and I had lunch at Yizani on Mother's Day. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the staff service was of a high standard.

    Really enjoyed my lunch a great variety. However my only disappointment was not having any roast meat like lamb beef or pork. Being a sunday lunch it would have been a great addition instead of grilled steak and chicken breast. Other than that it was a job well done. Thank you for the complimentary parking ticket, perfect way to end the day.

    Love the meat griller guy - he was awesome, always making comments and adding a joke or two. Food was really great, wide buffet selection to cater for all tastes.Dessert could have been more varied though. The lady at the buffet station explaining what everything was, was also a great help. Thanks Elize for making the moms feel special. Guitar guy was a plus. It was a beautiful day outside yesterday and quite hot inside the restaurant, would have been nice to have an option to dine outdoors perhaps. Maybe next time. Great service from the waitrons as well.
