My wife, my son, his girl friend and I went there for an evening meal, we received what we ordered and the waitress was very pleasant. We all enjoyed the experience as the food was good and we did not wait very long. There are two Boykie Restaurants in Berea and we have been to both and found them both... More

We visited 4 times. The food is mundane and when we had very slow service, waiting for our food for nearly an hour, we never went back.

Relaxed environment, quick friendly service. Good fresh food with an amazing price. They spoiled my little one with free ice-cream which he messed everywhere lol and the lovely waiter cleaned up with a smile even my son's hands were cleaned. Thank you to the friendly manager, handsome, friendly and helpful. What a rare combination. We will definitely be back soon.

We heard the new restaurant being advertised on the radio while driving to East London so decided to give it a try on our first night. We were not disappointed. The booking process was quick and easy, service was quick and efficient and our pizzas very tasty.

Our table waited ages to get served, everything we ordered took longer then normal and they weren't even busy. No one cleaned our table when we were done, we had to call someone and the tables...
