As you step into the Baobab Café and Grill in Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, your eyes are immediately averted to the giant statues watching over you as you walk into the contemporary African themed restaurant. While it is set in a vast space, you instantly feel the warm welcome of the staff.

With a large variety of dishes to choose from, one wonders where to begin. From light meals and salads to meat or fishes dishes, you are more than likely to find something that will tickle your taste buds.
If you’re in the mood for a lighter meal, we would suggest the grilled chicken quesadilla ,which is a toasted flour tortilla filled with grilled chicken, sun-dried tomato and cheddar cheese, or the sushi that is always fresh and melts in your mouth.

As for a more hearty meal, we would suggest the bone marrow rib eye or the shisa nyama which is half a chicken, sort rib and boerewors flame grilled the traditional way. In the mood for a seafood style dish? While you can never go wrong with the Grilled Calamari which is topped with delicious lemon butter and served with Tartar sauce, Baobab Café and Grill have recently introduced the Red Snapper as their line fish option which is also served with a lemon butter sauce and has been highly welcomed by their customers.
While the food and the service is highly rated in our books, we are major fans of the earthy yet modern, Pan African décor of the establishment. Shades of creams and tans as well as browns are seen throughout with subtle hints of greenery from rows of potted plants and succulents that are tastefully dispersed throughout the restaurant. This elegant and modern décor flows through both the bottom floor and first floor of the restaurant. If you are looking to host a more intimate dinner party, there is even a private room available.
