GOLD Restaurant – an immersive African experience

GOLD Restaurant in Cape Town offers an authentic African experience. So much more than just an African restaurant, a night at GOLD is an immersive experience that will take you on a 14-dish taste-safari paired with traditional Mali puppets and entertainment.

Guests at GOLD Restaurant cannot help but be swept up in the excitement of archetypal African stories told through the live entertainment with dinner. The African entertainment includes praise singing, Mali puppetry, and dancing to the rhythms of the marimba percussion and djembe drums.

You are also given the opportunity to feel the heartbeat of Africa with a pre-dinner interactive djembe drumming session that really sets the mood for the evening.

The entire 14 dish menu is served at your table in sharing and individual portions and you may order as much as you like from the menu. The cuisine authentically reflects the colourful diversity of Africa and its people. GOLD’s menu includes a variety of traditional African dishes with a Western twist. All the Halaal-certified meat, poultry and fish dishes also come with vegetarian or vegan substitutes.

Throughout your traditional African meal, you will enjoy learning about the country of origin, cooking techniques and spicing of each dish. At any restaurant, when you ask a waiter a question you can always tell if they’re genuinely excited about the food. GOLD’s people are not just familiar with the menu; they have a personal and very real connection to it. They get to eat it, often, and much of what goes on the menu is inspired by their own home countries, cultural heritage, and shared experiences. Practically everyone at GOLD has a favourite dish and a story about what it means to them, and how it reminds them of home.

In addition to hosting, cooking, and serving guests, the team at this Cape Town restaurant contributes with their favourite African recipes. Hailing from all over the African content, they provide the ambience, warmth, and knowledgeable service for which GOLD Restaurant is well known. The restaurant team also helps to design and oversee their traditional African dress, and even hand stitches their personalities and artistic ideas into the intricate details on the table linens.

Satisfy your taste cravings while you enjoy dinner and revel in the amazing atmosphere created by the team of lively entertainers. This is the true African experience. This is GOLD.
