Sawubona, Welcome. Our restaurant offers a unique South African experience, the first of its kind in the United States. Since 1999 at our first restaurant in Fort Greene, Brooklyn we have proudly brought our guess traditionally prepared specialties from our nation. Never complacent, we added a second location in South Beach, Florida, and successfully sold it as our first franchise in 2007. Madiba Restaurant pays homage to Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and is dedicated to the future of South Africa, a future that promises greater cultural harmony, economic development, and collective enjoyment of a World in One Country. Our concept is steeped in the tradition of Shebeen, the informal dining halls in South African townships. These gathering places are where South Africans leave the work day behind to embrace joy, laughter, community, and a little beer to boot. The Shebeen offers sanctuary to the weary and well traveled; a visit to one is the ultimate experience of everyday life one can have while touring South Africa. From humble beginnings,South Africans townships replete with history and culture have flourished as the hub of activity and social life in each community. The feeling of Ubuntu humanity in the Xhosa language is the very core of each township's existence. Madiba restaurant is your gateway to South Africa. Through our electric cuisine, authentic music, arts & crafts, homesick? products, and highly successful catering business, we are celebrating and preserving the culture and vitality of a unique continent and extending it well beyond the shores of Africa. We are honored to reinvest a percentage of our proceeds in the people of South Africa via the charities Ubuntu Education Fund, Ethembeni School of the Blind, Achilles, and others. Please see web site for more information.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was great, service was not the best. Took us a while to get someone's attention so we could order and they didn't really check in to see how our food was or if we were done until we called someone over. Nov 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the food and atmosphere. Will definitely be there more often!!!! Oct 29, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Our server set the wrong tone. Didn't take drink orders, didn't care about dietary needs of diners, and went out of her way to do the bare minimum. We dine here often, so knew that she was just a blip on he radar screen. Oct 13, 2014
