About moyo

a few words about moyo

Welcome to moyo – the destination for a unique African dining experience. Inspired by the traditions and values of our ancestors, moyo is a celebration of, and commitment to, the beauty of Africa, and the industry of her people. Our famously warm hospitality and modern African ambience make the moyo experience an unforgettable one.

moyo was born of one man’s passion for all things African – from art and design to music, cuisine and crafts. In 1998, moyo started as a small 120-seater restaurant in Norwood, Johannesburg, serving exceptional African cuisine amidst soulful vibes. Today, live African music and a unique African dining experience are the benchmarks of the five evocative moyo establishments that now form part of the Fournews Developments portfolio. Situated in some of the most iconic South African sites, the Cape Town moyo stores can be found in Blouberg and Kirstenbosch; the Durban store at Ushaka Marine World and the Johannesburg stores at Melrose Arch and Zoo Lake.

moyo menu

moyo embodies Africa’s finest urban cuisines, with diverse dining options ranging from relaxed lunch meals to romantic dinners. The Origins menu is broad and bold, offering visitors a taste of the continent, while also appealing to the local by offering classic South African favourites with a twist. The Life menu introduces café-style breakfasts and lunch with an African spin for quick on the go meals. A special menu for children broadens the appeal to the entire family. The extensive cocktail and wine list offer options that can be perfectly paired with any moyo meal or simply enjoyed on their own.

entertainment

For your added pleasure, moyo scouts Africa for the best artistic talent. Colourful costumes, dramatic acts and fancy footwork of dancers will ensure that you leave delighted. With a song on the lips of the Wishy-Washy ladies, you will be welcomed to the age-old tradition of the African hand-washing and face painting ceremonies.
