Having been to Karibu on previous occasions we knew what to expect and even though we hadn’t been there in a while, the service, food and ambiance was still excellent.
Then of course there are the famous Karibu breadsticks, which is one of the major reasons we keep coming back. Simply divine.
The restaurant’s was very accommodating and whilst they offered a set Menu for Restaurant Week they also offer their A la Carte Menu. We choose the full Restaurant Week Menu and also some dishes from the A la Carte Menu.
A LA CARTE MENU – PRAWN COCKTAIL – Prawn tails with a piquant home-made seafood sauce, served with crostini. Not being a fan of Prawn Cocktail I can say this one was good, perhaps less sauce,but other than that it was pleasant.
BOBOTIE SPRINGROLLS – Lightly fried and served with Banana Yoghurt and Chutney.Really good Bobotie,the traditionalist might not appreciate the Banana yoghurt,but I was indifferent. To me the Chutney and Springrolls would have been good enough as is.
RESTAURANT WEEK MENU – MUSSEL POT – Fresh mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce, served with roosterkoek. I loved this starter,the sauce was excellent and they do give you loads of mussels,could have passed for main as it is quite rich.
RESTAURANT WEEK MENU – PEANUT & HONEY SESAME CHICKEN – marinated in a nutty sesame soy sauce. Served on putu and chakalaka. This was another hit,soft,succulent chicken. I choose the salad instead of the Putu and Chalaka and it was really delicious as well.
RESTAURANT WEEK MENU – OSTRICH FILLET – From the Karoo – healthy, lean and tasty – grilled and served with a sweet onion marmalade sauce. Cooked Medium Rare the fillet was cooked to perfection
A LA CARTE MENU – MILKTART – Old family recipe – short crust pastry filled with cinnamon infused custard.Delectable,delightful,delicious. Perfect !!!
Karibu has a formula that clearly works which is why we keep going back. Keep up the high standards guys,we well see you soon.
