I took some food home to my partner who grew up with Cape Malay food and is from South Africa. He opened the plastic and immediately smiled and said, this smells like home. He then tried it and said that it tastes so much like the food that he grew up with that I must have gone back to South Africa for it! I'm so glad you are in the area providing such quality food!! THank you!!!

Everything was SO GOOD. The hot sauce was incredible, too. Took some leftovers home, and my boyfriend agreed.... I will absolutely be back. New favorite lunch spot in the area.

I will come back for the food, but not a big fan of the guy at the cash register. Not only was he slow at peak lunch time but also he was not paying attention. Sometimes he indulged in long conversations - i think its ok if he's multi tasking, but he would stop doing what he was doing just to talk. And then with my order which i ordered 2 things both veggie. He seemed totally confused. I said everything is veggie (no meat, if that helps). After confirming with me at least 4 times, i still got the wrong order. I got chicken. I mean, i gave the food to a homeless guy and like i said i will come back for the food. But if you want good recommendations on Yelp, do something about the guy at the register. Maybe he's not there everyday, but he was there on Tues, Sept 3.

This place is amazing!! Huge portions of delicious food at prices I couldn't believe for this part of San Francisco - 2 meals combined were inside of $20. Amaweles is a new favorite in SF that should not be missed!!!

Groupon is getting worse and worse for me in general. Often - and it was true here again - the game has changed at the restaurant when I get there. Basically, it is a version of bait and switch. This was true recently for me at the Crabyard in Berkeley, also. I am disgusted with Groupon.
