Born and raised South African, the word "braai" is synonymous for social get-togethers where people can meet enjoy good meat and various other foods. So when I heard there was a South African restaurant serving up cuisine from my place of birth I couldn't wait to go. I have now frequented Braai a few times and even host my birthday dinner there- each time this place has pulled through. The food is cooked well and is authentic, from seafood to bobotie this place really transports me home. The staff are friendly, its always easy to get a table due to its large dining area and it does not over do the "cliches" of home - rather its elegant and somewhat rustic Their only shortfall comes in the form of having very limited beers from South Africa itself, if you ask for a "local" beer its basically coming from Africa in general rather than your local watering hole in South Africa. All-in-all a place I would recommend to any expats needing a taste of home.
