moyo is a celebration of commitment to the beauty of Africa and her people, inspired by the traditions and values of our ancestors. moyo’s famously warm hospitality and modern African ambiance makes it the ultimate destination for a unique African experience.

In May 2017 moyo partnered with StreetSmart South Africa as part of the organisations’ initiative to raise funds for street children projects through participating restaurants and has since donated more than R90 000 to local StreetSmart charities. StreetSmart was started in 2005 under the founding patronage of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. The funds raised go to selected and approved organisations that run programs for the normalisation of street and vulnerable children’s lives. moyo creates awareness with a StreetSmart menu insert at all moyo restaurants, informing customers that a voluntary R5 can automatically be added to the table’s bill. Should the patrons wish to contribute more or none at all they should simply inform their waiter. StreetSmart operational costs are sponsored so every cent donated at restaurants goes to the beneficiaries.

The StreetSmart organisation’s message is to encourage the public not to give money to street children as this enables them to carry on living on the streets. In essence, eating at a StreetSmart restaurant and contributing is the “smart” way to help a street child.

“We took a long time to find a partner that had both a national footprint and a benefit to local organisations. The fact that 100% of the proceeds go to the relevant charities is what won us over. We are looking forward to a long and substantial partnership with StreetSmart,” says Innes Linder, moyo National Marketing Manager.

Visit one of the five moyo restaurants which span across South Africa including; Blouberg and Kirstenbosch in Cape Town, Ushaka in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Zoo Lake or Melrose in Johannesburg to make your StreetSmart contribution.

moyo uShaka

November, 2017: It’s summer time and now moyo Durban fans can come on back to the sunniest, saltiest hangout spot KZN has to offer. The moyo uShaka Pier is reopening on 02 December 2017, just in time for year-end celebrations and the holiday mood that is already filling the air.

With the pier being closed for a total of 16 weeks to date, the vital well maintenance has been successfully completed and even more exciting is the announcement that the moyo uShaka team have completely revamped the pier bar which will be revealed to the public for the first time.

The Pier offers guests a new look, a breezy atmosphere and fantastic dreamy ocean views, making the moyo pier the perfect casual African dining experience. With the reveal of the newly revamped pier, moyo will delight guests with a new menu, which focuses on simple African light meals and baskets, featuring burgers, shisanyama and the traditional favourite tripe.

The moyo main restaurant underwent a subdivision as well as some refurbishments in order to enhance the African ambience and make guests feel welcome a home away from home with Mama moyo. “We strive to ensure each guest has an unforgettable moyo experience and for that reason we felt that the store required some refurbishments, allowing us to heighten and enrich the nostalgic, memorable appeal of moyo uShaka”, says moyo Marketing Manager, Lynette Balie.

Furthermore moyo has decided to shift their focus onto the quality of their food rather than quantity, striving to give guests from near and far a truly memorable African experience. The emphasis on the quality of the food gives room to provide specialised cuisine centered around the element of excellence.

So whether it be a sundowner and a snack on the pier or a dinner party in the main restaurant to celebrate the end of the year, moyo uShaka caters to all needs and invites guests to come and celebrate the end of the year in true African style.
