Went to Shun De on a Friday night. Plenty of space available as the restaurant seems huge. Food was very good & fresh so I rate this as a very good Chinese. Service was fun as waitresses struggled with English. Decor was very bland. Was as if someone tried to decorate a school hall. Parking was a problem. Bill was... More

As you walk into the restaurant, the first thing you notice is the frenetic pace of activity - tables being cleared in a matter of seconds, waitresses whizzing past you and the almost bazaar like gathering around the dimsum station. The experience is overwhelming and it does take a minute or so for you to get your bearings right. But... More

Maybe Sunday was my fifth visit after my review in January. Since then, I have been to many Chinese restaurants in this city. And I always come back to Shun De to reset my taste buds, As other reviewers has mentioned, decor is not fancy but its clean. Staffs are friendly and efficient. It's like a place in back streets...

I'm originally from Hong Kong so I always look for the best Dim Sum place in town wherever i go or live. This is actually recommended by my other Hong Kong friend and I have to say the food in Shun De is really authentic and good. Their environment may not be fancy but it is clean and tidy enough....

Don't let its no frills decor put you off, as this place would be right at home in Shanghai. The service is typically Chinese with the food coming "when its ready", and the smells from the kitchen are a real treat to the senses. This is an authentic slice of China in the middle of Johannesburg. So forget where you... More

This restaurant is in Cyrildene area of Johannesburg. The whole stretch of Derrick Avenue looks and smells like back street of Shanghai or Shenzhen. Shun De or Sun De is located in a building in center of this avenue. Shun De has authentic northern Chinese food. You should try their lunch time Yam Cha. Dim Sum served is the best... More

I asked around Chinese girls where I can have nice dim sum in Joburg's Chinatown, Cyrildene. They all said about this restaurant Shundek (there are too many spellings and I don't know which one is correct..) Their lunch time Yamucha (= drinking tea with Dimsum(=small portion of sweet and savory snacks)) was brilliant! Not like some others who prepare dished... More
