Great service and excellent value for money for a packed restaurant during Turn-n-Tender's 40th birthday special this entire week (15 May 2017 to 21 May 2017). Imagine, R40 for a 300 gram Sirloin with a Backed Potato or Salad or Chips or Vegetables!!!!! This celebration takes place every year and one pays the Rand's value equal to the restaurant's age...

Well if you want to taste great steaks and wine at a reasonable price then this is your place. Nice environment, open cuisine, a big variety of steaks and a nice presentation as well for those who don't know which is which. Parking spot is nearby.

We had a rump steak with chips and lamb chops with a baked potato.Both were equally great and cooked to perfection. Washed down with another old faithful a glass of Wolftrap red wine. They... More

If you are looking for a steak in Joburg, this is our new favourite. The meat is cooked to perfection and complemented by great sauces and toppings. The sides are well prepared and much bigger than most other steak houses we have tried. The desserts, if you have space, are very tasty too (we tried the chocolate volcano and ice... More

Taking the family out to celebrate my mother's 62nd birthday, I picked Turn'n Tender as the spot to be at. And quite frankly, I'm glad I did. The place was beautiful, and the food was exquisite to the eye and mouth. The waiter was great, though the food took some time to arrive considering that the place wasn't too full.... More

Family re-union from 12-75 years old and appropriate differing tastes. All very happy and service excellent, The lunch time special at R75 is outstanding value, currently lamb chops, eaten at two TNT's and both the same high quality. Parking readily available in the Thrupps centre.

First class meal. Great service from Calvin. Ate chicken, burgers and calamari. Quite pricy but worth it every time

One cannot help but keep going back to the same restaurant. We all want to try new things but going to TNT you know you will always have a great meal with great service. As long as they maintain the quality of the ribs, which has dipped at times but bounced back, then there is no reason why every night... More
