Welcome to the Oasis in the Industry

The Story
of Tinka

To many “Tinkabell” is an unusual choice for restaurant name. Let me put all the curiosity to rest. I named the restaurant after a very special lady who had a heart of gold & whose door was always opened to everyone from all walks of life. Unfortunately she is no longer with us, but her memory lives on. That special lady was my Grandmother, whose nickname was “Tinka”.


The most important meal of the day, we have a selection of freshly made breakfasts, Or fresh fruit pots, perfect with a hot cup of coffee or freshly squeezed Fruit juice on the side. Or enjoy one of our many homemade baked goods while you read the morning paper.


We are open Monday to Saturday for lunch, our menu is diverse & caters for all tastebuds. From our House specialty "Frango Peri-Peri" to our signature "Moza's special" grilled prawns. Our menu is Halaal so no pork products are used, however we do have a fully stocked bar to quench your thirst.
