Durham Eatery Listed #12 On Yelp’s Top 25 Hot And New Black-Owned Restaurants 2024

DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — An elevated dining experience with a fusion of South African cuisine in Durham has been listed as one of the Hot and New Black-owned restaurants by Yelp.

Zweli’s Ekhaya, located in the American Tobacco Campus in the heart of downtown Durham, ranked No. 12 on the list.

Chef Zweli Williams, listed in INDY Week’s 2021 Best Chefs in Durham County, introduces guests to an upscale dining concept “that caters to all five senses,” according to the restaurant’s site.



The restaurant serves eclectic cuisine inspired by Southern African flavors that take guests “on an adventure to the Motherland.”

Yelp determined the list by identifying businesses in the restaurant category that have opted into the Black-owned business attribute on Yelp, and that have a Yelp page created after January 1, 2023. Yelp then ranked those spots using a number of factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews.

The full list with a map of all the locations can be found on Yelp’s website.
