During Load shedding there is no water. The Smokey Train was a disappointment! Small portions and very expensive.

This restaurant in Sabie has a great vibe and atmosphere, taking one back to the old days of railroading. The food is fantastic and the service great. Can really recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Very beautiful diner. Very cosy atmosphere. Friendly staff. You get the feeling of waiting for the train. The coach has been beautifully redone. If you ever had a meal on a SAR&H train in the olden days, you will enjoy this. Brings back memories.
