Their blue cheese burger is the BEST. There is crumbled blue cheese on top of the patty, and then a bowl of extra blue cheese sauce on the side. Sublime.
The service is always excellent

Decided to avoid the draw of fish at the neighbouring Fishmonger Restaurant in Illovo and was not disappointed by this fine steak house. Enjoyed two dinners in the space of a week. I thought that the steak strips in pepper sauce were delicious but would have liked to have seen more steak and less sauce. On the second occasion, I went hook, line and sinker for the 500g fillet steak. Beautifully cooked and probably no need to take any extra sauce with this. The meat does the talking! I am sure that the steak was closer to a kilo in weight! Managed it though and still had some room to accompany the meal with some excellent onion rings.
Great wine list and this place represents excellent value.

I love eating at Turn and Tender when in Johannesburg. I don't eat beef...which limits my choices - no burgers, steaks or even ribs for me - but other items don't disappoint. I usually have the grilled chicken breast with bbq sauce (which is very more-ish), fries and creamed spinach. A glass of (excellent)red wine comes in a mini carafe and costs only a few pounds sterling. Desserts are huge so you may want to consider sharing especially after the generous portion of mains. The atmosphere at this branch is always buzzing and lively. It seems to be a popular place for birthdays as the waiting staff regularly seem to be singing - no bad thing as everyone seems to have the most amazing voice. I'd eat here again.
