Any new (Good) South African restaurants?

Does anyone know of any restaurants that serve African game? (Kudu? Oryx? Impala?)
Also interested to find good "Bobotie" (may not have spelled it correctly) THANKS!

  1. It's more of a winebar, but the food at Kaia is rather good, including the bobotie. You'll have to settle for ostrich and bison over kudu and oryx, though.

      Thanks. I"ll check it out.( I thought it would probably be impossible to have the more exotic game here but I did get to try wildebeest, warthog, impala, springbok, kudu and oryx on my recent trip and though it would be great to have a chance again now that I'm home!) But good bobotie sounds great!

    2. Xai Xai is also South African, though not new. You'd probably have to settle for ostrich and bison there as well.

        Braai, from the same people as Xai Xai is a better place to eat. Xai Xai is more a wine bar than a restaurant.
