This is a launderette - but they have a dim sum menu - by the basket - and a few, very few other items. I was not au fait with the dim sum fillings but the lady explained all too me and the veggie ones I selected where delicious. You wait at least 30 minutes, which she did explain, and... More

Well, "Washr" stole some of my most prized items of laundry last September and has made no offer to return them to me or of restitution although admitting their fault and acknowledging that they have the missing items. I certainly DON'T recommend Washr and would surely give "I Love My Laundry" my business when next in that city.

This great little laundry in a trendy part of town which makes it convenient for both budget travelers staying on Long Street and others in the area. They have reasonable rates and get the laundry done quickly. They were a lifesaver when I needed ti.

After several weeks of traveling and doing laundry in the sink or shower, it was time to give my clothes a proper wash. I Love My Laundry was two blocks from our hotel. They returned my laundry within hours and did a marvelous job on a winter jacket that was heavily soiled. Cheap!

At the Buitenkant branch, but stopped in for dim sum. Really really good dimsum, no regrets stopping here. Range of vegetarian and meat options, 8 per serving, at about R45. To me that's good value! Attentive staff, great environment.

Dumplings are nice, but are underfilled. Still it's a pretty sweet place to stop off for a quick bite if you're feeling peckish.

Dropped in one morning to see how much it would cost to wash our big bag of laundry. Staff were happy to help and we were back at our hotel getting our dirty items to take straight to I love my laundry. Very cheap to wash our clothes and was offered free delivery to our hotel which was super kind... More

I've been a customer for over two years, but recently new owners took over and service levels have gone down the tubes. I took some laundry in to the Buitengracht branch. It came back three days late, smelling musty and damp, and I had had several items (including a really expensive sweatshirt) lost or stolen! Trying to get the staff... More

We dropped laundry off and had to pick it up 24 hours later and get a refund as they had failed to do it.
