Lunch

A good lunch time venue. The food and service was good. The biltong is certainly worth a try. I would certainly recommend the food.

Service sucks. Waiters are flustered and running around but very little action- although place wasn't full. They say yes sir to requests and then do nothing . Food takes a very long time more than 45 minutes wait. Food is good, it's a nice mall option for quality of food but definitely don't come if you're in a hurry .

I love the Butcher shop. It is always serves great food wherever I go in the world. The steaks are of high quality, and so is the appetizers. Try their Boerewors (South African sausage) as they are just great. The service was very good and friendly, and it was very speedy as well.

We ordered the prime rib medium which was perfectly cooked with a pink center. Also ordere full ribs, now this is one of the best ribs I've tasted in ages! The meat was tender and succulent and moist with the right balance of flavour. Did not disappoint. Service was attentive.

I had a great dinner with group of friends. My friends ordered burgers while I ordered grilled chicken. Plus, we ordered chicken wings and chicken rolls as appetizers. The food was great and tasty. The staff were very kind and courteous. The place has a good variety of items to choose from. It is definitely worthy of having a meal

Good quality steaks and they are reasonable on service too. Never found that we had to wait long for our food based on some other reviews. Steaks are very good, especially the tenderloin. The bread and sauce the provide are really good too. Always have to take a pack of biltong along when I leave.

This place - especially management - needs a shake up. It's resting on its laurels and the customer is treated second rate. We ordered a signature dish, which when delivered to the table bore no resemblance to the photo and description - it was sub standard to say the least. The manager came over and didn't do anything in terms... More

Wonderful food here - a great mid-shop stop off. The novelty of buying your meat at the same time as your lunch is pretty unique. What surprises is the quality of the seafood on offer here - a quick look round shows just how popular the seafood platters are. Lovely fruit smoothies, attentive staff and efficient service overall. Definitely a... More
