Our Story

Welcome “Lelapa Restaurant Township Cuisine”

Lelapa, which means ‘the home’ was established in October 1999 in Langa, Cape Town’s oldest township (or informal settlement), when Sheila and Monica Mahloane (mother and daughter) converted our home in order to seize an entrepreneurial opportunity. We saw all the tourists’ buses driving past our township on the way to the winelands and our idea was to create a restaurant serving tradition township cuisine and invite guests to experience a bit of township life.
