Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Durban/ Umhlanga area, in particular, have long been foodie destinations. Our Indian cuisine and seafood are world renowned and the “casual city” proudly takes its place alongside South Africa’s others when it comes to dining out.
Umhlanga is home to some fantastic restaurants. Our famed Ile Maurice (conveniently situated near the Beverley Hills and the Oyster Box – both fine dining destinations themselves) comes to mind. Ile Maurice’s Chef Robert has dazzled gourmands for years with his superb menu.
In the past decade or so, we have seen a ton of new eateries opening in Umhlanga Ridge and the town is now spoiled for choice!
Further afield, Durban has some world class restaurants too: 9th Avenue Bistro in Morningside has stood the test of time and Freedom Cafe in Greyville never disappoints.
With the doors of Pearl Walk being officially opened, the high-end boutique mall provides Umhlanga with even more of an array of superb restaurants. Pearl Walk is Umhlanga’s first boutique shopping mall, and so there’s no doubt that the upmarket eateries, coffee shops and bars in the centre will be of an incredibly high standard. Developers were able to cherry pick tenants as the demand for retail (and restaurant) space was incredibly high. Businesses obviously see the benefit of aligning themselves with this prestigious development.
With Food Lovers as the anchor tenant of this magnificent development, it can only set a superior tone for quality dining. So for connoisseurs of fine dining and foodies of all persuasions, you have come to the right place.
