Our restaurant offers a unique South African experience, the first of its kind in the United States.
Since 1999 at our first restaurant in Fort Greene, Brooklyn we have proudly brought our guests traditionally prepared specialities from our nation.

We are a New York based full-service Catering & Event Company, experts at making any size corporate or social function a highly unique event.

It is founded on the basis of superb professionalism wrapped in family.

With an array of international cuisines you are always guaranteed the highest level of first class service.

Whether for 10 guests or several hundred we provide that extra touch that will make your occasion a success.

At Madiba we pride ourselves in partnering with you to create all that you envision and more!

Our concept is steeped in the tradition of a Shebeen, the informal dining halls in South African townships. These gathering places are where South Africans leave the work day behind to embrace joy, laughter, community, and a little beer to boot.

The Shebeen offers sanctuary to the weary and well-traveled; a visit to one is the ultimate experience of everyday life one can have while touring South Africa.

From humble beginnings, South African townships – replete with history and culture – have flourished as the hub of activity and social life in each community. The feeling of “Ubuntu” – “humanity” in the Xhosa language – is the very core of each township’s existence.

Madiba restaurant is your gateway to South Africa.

Through our eclectic cuisine, authentic music, arts & crafts, Homesick? products, and highly successful catering business, we are celebrating and preserving the culture and vitality of a unique continent and extending it well beyond the shores of Africa.

We are honored to reinvest a percentage of our proceeds in the people of South Africa
via the charities Ubuntu Education Fund, Ethembeni School of the Blind, Achilles, and others.
