I'm vegan and this is my favourite vegan hangout... I Love the buffet and the green juice.. Wish they were open for dinner!

Wow, I had been to Bali and tasted some of the best Vegetarian meals ever and theirs is right up there with them. thank you, you are true to your beliefs and that is what makes you special. Great lunch and walk around the farm.

Got a few friends together and went for the Sunday buffet to celebrate my birthday. Whilst I'm vegan, none of the others are - but it's MY birthday so I get to choose :) It was beautiful. The setting is lovely ... about 40 minutes out of Jo'burg, peace and quiet, and lovely shady gardens. It appeared to be fully... More

So disappointing this restaurant nowadays... One you were a place to go and eat very healthy "mostly organic" food... Now well you have just become a money making restaurant... Used to go there every 2 months or so but the last time quality has really dropped... Sad to say.. Juices are no longer freshly made put in plastic bottles in... More

Hi Jason, thank you for visiting us at Leafy Greens. The reason that we are bottling our juices is that our business is expanding and we are delivering fresh cold-pressed juices daily to multiple stores in Gauteng and we are trying to standardise our product offering. The juice is made on the world's biggest and best cold-pressed juice machine and... More

We had small plates for vegetarian Sunday buffet. We tried many delicious dishes. Loved little vegetarian tartlets and different salads. We had also very nice chocolate cake. This is a heaven for vegetarians. We also bought some great coffee in the Coffee Rostery next to the Leafy Green..

I am not Vegan but can honestly say that I... More

Fantastic if you are vegan , but also wonderful of you feel like going on a clean and healthy mission of eating ! The kitchen is French looking and wonderfully designed , a sufficient shop where everyone can purchase vegan and health food , a lot of work goes into the dishes and it is a treat to come here...

A few of the guests at our table placed an order from the main restaurant and the vegetarian feast they received looked (and tasted) delicious

Went there to try this out. Not a good idea. Most probably because I believe you should have some kind of meat with your meal. I think their "smoothies and power drinks" are vastly overpriced. Service slow and staff (except for floor manager) not really interested in patrons

I go here often, not because I'm a vegan, but because I love the whole philosophy of the place. Everything is seasonal, a lot of it fresh from the gardens (which you can take a walk through) and it tastes delicious. The menu is free from sugar and refined carbohydrates, so you can eat healthily. Plus on the way home... More
