Mzansi Restaurant was birthed through the vision of Nomonde’s Siyaka mother, who is late. Mzansi Restaurant aims to introduce to the tourist African traditional foods served in the African traditional environment. Music, played by a live band adds to the atmosphere aiding in a complete township restaurant experience.

It is now operated and owned by Nomonde and Vukile Siyaka. Officially opened in 2008, Mzansi serves delicious traditional African meals and cuisine that showcase the country’s diverse cultures and tastes. It also offers a multiple cultural activities: customers can listen to the African Marimba band playing Indigenous, pop, and jazz music while learning the local dance. Nomonde also shares with all of her guests the powerful story behind the restaurant and her family. Other activities are also available upon request, such as gumboot dancing, face painting, drum circles, and township tours.

Langa Township is the oldest township in Cape Town and is the most visited by the tourist. It holds a strong historical account of movements against the apartheid government and thus the interest by the tourist.
