Welcome to a culinary experience that will delight every one of your senses. This is not merely a resturant but an entire experience in the finest of African music, food and expression. Welcome to Moyo.

Set in Melrose Arch, the northern suburb of Jo'burg - Moyo offers the absolute best in East African / Morroccan cuisine. From the time you take your seat - a bowl of rose water is brought to your table for you to wash your hands and so begins the joy of truly eating wonderful food.

The resturant itself has four levels, the ground level that has tables outside and a cocktail bar, the upper level offers romantic lighting for those who want to share an intimate moment, two levels below - one a cigar lounge and further down the wine cellar where you get to pick your own bottle for dinner from an extensive range of the best wines SA has on offer. Absolutely exquisitely decorated!

The menu is delightful, the food even more so. The waiters also come and paint your faces beautifully in tribal styles with white paints that can be easily washed off (I had this done a few times).

Even the bathroom is glorious with a mosiac wash bowls and a maiden in waiting ready with a fresh, warm hand towel and a spray of expensive cologne.

The entire evening is magical and its no wonder you have to book in advance! Definitely go there to enjoy some of the finer things that this city has on offer!

I want to get my face painted and have a maiden in waiting waiting for me. Sounds like an awesome place.

Sounds like a blast! I have two friends here in the US who are originally from Johannesburg. I'll have to "tag along" when they return home :-D
