Go for chicken Sticks and prawn bisque. It gets very busy at lunchtime because it has a nice variety and the food is tasty. The service can get slow, but just go with it.

Located directly on Mandela Square, this restaurant has a pleasant environment and nice food. Moderately high prices for the area but the food is diverse and good.

We ordered California Sushi (each is 8 pc), so careful with your order, as it easy to go overboard. We also had fried baby squids and nigiri (each is 2 pc) food was excellent. The atmosphere here is lively btw, mostly on weekends.

We sat under cover with the doors open on the Square watching the water fountains at Mandela Square in Sandton. We had the Kingclip, Chicken Curry and the Chicken Skewer, Chips & Salad A nice ambiance and reasonably priced. Great location to go shopping afterwards.

One of the best sushi joints in Johannesburg with amazing cocktails but the service was really poor. The restaurant was busy on the particular Friday night that I visited to celebrate my partner's birthday but the staff was not attentive and this dulled our experience....More
