Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 13 November 2022 via mobile

We ate out for almost every meal during our 7 day stay in Hoedspruit all of which were great. But the quality of food at Kassava is something you'd expect from an excellent restaurant in Cape Town. My son had the brisket and one week...on he is still talking about it. He believes it to be the best meal he has ever had. His girlfriend had the pasta and declared that to be the best she'd ever had. For me though it was the chocolate tarte. Although maybe if the marula cheesecake had been available I would be raving about that. Unortunately both times we visited it was sold out. The menu is fairly small but this ensures the quality of the ingredients. Front of house service was exceptional. The chefs take great pride over each piece of art/dish they prepare so food does take a little while to be served. But it's totally worth the wait. (It may also be that they were training new chefs when we visited). This fairly new Hoedspruit eatery deserves to be number 1. They also offer chefs at home and other outside catering. I wouldn't hesitate to use them if I had some sort of special celebration. My only critical feedback, you should charge more! I hope you need to expand to larger premises in the not so distant future.More

While staying in Hoedspruit we got takeaway from the Kassava Cafe. It was excellent! We went in late in the day to find out the PiriPiri chicken had sold out earlier. We ended up ordering the Beef brisket with the mustard mash and the Pork...belly pasta. BOTH WERE EXCELLENT! We reheated them in our cottage where we were staying and worried the brisket may disappoint but it was great. The Pork belly pasta was the best pasta we had in our stay in SA. We also had a slice of amarula cheese cake. It did not disappoint. My only disappointment was we were only there for one night so we could not try more dishes on the menu I am sure this restaurant is popular with locals but would highly recommend it to anyone travelling in the area.More

This place is exquisite, hands down the best food Hoedspruit has to offer. We’ve eaten at least half the menu collectively and every single dish is delicious, original, and fresh. The waiters are all lovely. Strongly recommended for both lunch and diner.More
