Carnival

It is dark and dingy looking ..... floor staff in the CAsino all stand chatting to each other than being interested in the customers / clients!

We go there at a regular basis and it is nice to go to the movies there as it is cheaper than Mall @ Carnival across the highway...just watch your bags as there are a lot of bag snatchers...just did a revamp on the "games' section and now there is even more games to play! Nice restaurant selection.....

Carnvial City has nothing to offer as an entertainment destination. If you are interested in gambling, the go ahead. For everything else, keep on driving to one of the other casino complexes dotted around JHB.

We go there often and enjoy eating at Squires. They offer a variety of entertainment, from movies to food, to gambling. close to home

Average casino vibe, nothing outstanding. The service at Fego was appalling, waitress did not know how to interact with customers at all. The food was average

The food was great, and their staff is very friendly, especially a gal named Nomsa. The entertainment was more than than enough too.....probably the best place i visited while in SA

Was not really impressed with the location. We booked for a live show - which was excellent. Had dinner prior to the show and had a small logistical issue as the restaurants were very full and the waiters were running around like crazy. Best food is the Japanese Restaurant.
