Loved this steakhouse as a choice for our one night in Johannesburg close to the airport. Tried lots of local fare and loved everything Try the biltlong (dried cured meat) that is a lot like beef jerky but juicier. Love the experience. Chakalaka sauce is very good and super spicyy for those that like spice
