Moyo is the realisation of one man’s passion for all things African – from art and design to music, cuisine and crafts. In 1998, Jason Lurie started moyo as a small 120 seater restaraunt in Norwood, Johannesburg serving exceptional African cuisine amidst soulful vibes. Today, live African music and sophisticated African dining are the benchmarks of the eight evocative moyo establishments.
