Excellent!

Very nice restaurant, lovely menu selection and great food. This place is very busy and reservations should be considered. We were lucky to get the last open table when we arrived. Service was also great and the ambience was wonderful even during a tremendous thunderstorm!

Grazias has always enjoyed a reputation as one of the best places to eat in East London and it probably is, but any restaurant with a menu which is so long it has to be presented in a book will get me worried. The food was average, but I expected this as they clearly go to volume over quality. They... More

From the welcoming greeting by staff to the "thank you for coming" as we left, this was a memorable and enjoyable experience. The menu caters for almost any preference and the watrons have been well trained to provide a caring and well-informed service.

This was the first restaurant we tried in East London. The service was good and the waiter tried to make sure we had a good time. The food was nice, it was well presented and tested good, it wasn't excellent bit it was good. Overall it was a place I'd go to again but it didn't bowl me over.

Food here was amazing really really good no complaints about price or quality at all! Service was slow but after going to a few places that's just the way it is there so no point getting stressed over it. The staff were nice and made you feel welcome we were a group of 11 with no booking and they made... More

This restaurant promises alot in terms of its menu and the pizza combinations live up to it but the other menu items offer pomp and show but leave you expecting more. The views and the general presence of the place make up for the menu let down.

Had a great time with the family, but some of the food we order was not to our expectation, will try again and choose something else next time, will recommend friends and families to give it a try.
