I met some with friends and we decided to have lunch here. It was not impressive and the service was poor - the waiter kept on disappearing for extended periods. The food was average. They do not have enough condiments. They keep on borrowing i.e honey, sauces to give to other clients. I had a higher expectation

The dining experience was not helped by the fact that it has been a long flight from Atlanta to Jo-Burg. However, the food was average, and served not near hot enough for an entrée of better dining. One of our party ordered a milk shake, as the milk shakes there were featured, but they couldn't ( or didn't want to)... More

All we wanted was to sit and relax and have a coffee and pastry at the airport after a long day walking around Johannesburg before our flight. We got cappuccinos and brownies, for which we paid about 3-4 times what they cost elsewhere. The coffee was simply not good, and our son, who loves brownies, made a funny face when... More

Breakfast before a flight staff very sweet but food really of a very basic standard not good enough for an international airport at all

Too much of unhealthy choices. If there is no place to turn to I will visit, otherwise there are bettee place to be candid. They close outlets which wo much ease around SA. That for me is a minus!

If I compare their meals to the many other restaurants we've been to, they are not good value for money. Although the meals are not terrible, the quantity and quality is not worth it. Probably making what they can from tourists with foreign currency. Won't be going there again.

They are very keen to call one when passing by to sit down, but then everything takes time. Normally everyone is in a hurry and it would be nicer if the service and food can be served promptly. Maybe you need more kitchen staff?
