The tagline, ‘When We Gather,’ further encapsulates the spirit of Math restaurant, inviting patrons to share in the nostalgia, inspiration, and culinary delight that defines this unique dining experience.


As for the menu, Math offers an exquisite fusion of tradition and innovation, with dishes inspired by Puleng’s own culinary journey. From comfort classics to daring experiments, each dish tells a story of journeys taken, memories cherished, and dreams fulfilled. This diverse menu caters to the modern African with a diverse palate. The menu is inspired by everything from the streets of New York City to the humble home-cooked favourites South Africans know and love.


Math restaurant offers a comprehensive dining experience, catering to guests throughout the day with a varied menu that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With its all-day service, Math Restaurant creates an inviting atmosphere where guests can relax and enjoy a delicious meal, whether it’s a casual breakfast, a business lunch, or a special dinner with family and friends.
