The heart and soul in the kitchen, the force behind all our hearty food. Happy, Nelly and Mane are old hands in the Kitchen and their passion and love for what they do is evident in their care in handling their ingredients and preparation of each dish to the order and maintenance of the Kitchen. The team has many years of experience working with different styles of cooking and are a steady influence on the new members of the team.
Our welcoming and relaxing atmosphere is largely due to our impeccable front of house staff. Their friendly and welcoming demeanour, coupled with their expert training on our menu and hospitality service lends them to hosting all our customers with our Kuzuri professionalism. Vickey, Hawick, Moses, Vusi and Obama run a tight ship on service throughout Kuzuri.

“ What a wonderful setting in the trees overlooking the Botanical gardens. Kuzuri is the perfect place for a relaxed and delicious meal. My favourite eat-out spot in Nelspruit, only ½ a minute from Riverside Mall.”
“ Never a disappointment, the food is good and the staff attentive, friendly and professional. I love the calming effect of being among the trees with the sound of the waterfall.”
“We found Kuzuri a happy place for children to have a meal outdoors, which as a family we appreciate. The milkshake was particularly yummy!”
