Elegant dining in one of Johannesburg’s top restaurants


“Qunu offers a modern African table, where local and international flavours meet to inspire unique, vibrant and entertaining culinary experiences.”  – Executive Chef Jane-Therese Mulry

Qunu extends a warm African welcome, enticing you with its rich surroundings, red tones, woven lampshades and an ambient glow, enhanced by the remarkable hanging gardens. Beyond the hanging gardens the doors open onto the Fig Terrace where guests can dine under the striking canopy of fig trees. With its picturesque indoor-outdoor atmosphere Qunu exudes a sense of being an intrinsic part of Africa.

Qunu pays homage to its South African roots, being named in honour of the small rural town that our beloved elder statesman, former President Nelson Mandela loved to call home, we hope you will too.
