After waiting several minutes to be served and shown a table for seating, we were given menus for which we were told that certain meals were not on offer. For vegetarians, there is not much of a choice and they are unwilling to do any substitutions. I waited 15 minutes for confirmation from the kitchen before walking out resorting to... More

The hardest thing about airports is the waiting game. Oliver Tambo has a wide variety of choices ranging from Wimpy to Mugg and Bean. Mugg and Bean have a consistently good standard, with the bottomless coffee a huge plus to help through a long wait for departure.

Had a snack here while waiting for my plane to leave. The food was good but had to wait very long to be served and for the food. The sauce was a bit watery but still a nice snack. I would recommend a visit if you are patient and have a lot of time to kill

It was okay, service a little slow, people would cut in line, break the queue. Maddening, especially when in a rush. Banana muffin was delicious. Staff would heat feed if requested.

Mugg and Bean is my favourite part of travelling through Joburg airport. Food is always good, interesting and varied menu and excellent service.

We went to the mall once a week as we volunteered in SA. Food was amazing and lots of it. The staff were always happy and we had good service. We travelled in packs of 20 and they were happy to put tables together and sort us out. This is the Mugg and Bean in Kimberley SA, in the mall.... More

I Visited store March 20th and after waiting ten minutes no service was offered. A staff member was drinking coffee five metres from me and chatting. Ten minutes later with no service offered and the same staff member sipping coffee and chatting I left to a different resturant. To avoid negative publicity for the store I requested contact via their... More
