One of the nicest restaurants in Johannesburg. A must visit. Totally worth it. A most satisfying experience. The menu is very original and interesting. Food is delicious and interesting. Staff - very friendly. It's usually fully booked which says something about this place. I tend to take my friends from oversees there for lunch. Lovely place.

Had the test platter (steak), which was really good. And as a starter the chilli salt calamari which is just absolutely superb.

Everything about this restaurant was amazing from slick professional waters, the superb service and don't get me started on their food where we tried their tasting plates where we got a selection of three different items which were all mouth watering! I could not make up my mind about which dessert I wanted and so went with the tasting plate... More

Really good food at Licorish. Great fish, red meat etc. I've started having the tasting platters. Nice size portions and a great variety. Super restaurant though a bit noisy being in shopping centre walkway. Nice décor though. I will do lunches there rather than dinners but will definitely carry on going there.

This restaurant is awesome! Before I even get to the food, I just loved the ambiance. It has a nice outside seating area which Is beautiful on a summers night. Both times I've been there, I've had their tasting menu. The waiter will usually offer this to you as It is not in the menu. I've had the seafood menu... More

Oh my word!!! It was so good that I could not even wait for tomorrow to write this review. This is a culinary experience that is beyond words. My husband booked online and stated that I am allergic to pepper and I can't eat spices. So when the chef came to attend to me personally I was surprised and felt... More

I have visited Licorice a number of times in the last year and have referred a number of collegues and friends to the restaurant as well due to the amazing food and excellent service for all concerned at the restaurant.

This is the most pleasant place to have a meal: beautiful linen, fine silverware and comfortable seating contribute to a feeling of luxury and well-being! The food is adventurous and excellently prepared - really enjoyable.

Visited this restaurant a few times over the past year and it really gets better each time. Wonderful specials and tasting menus. yes it is in a busy mall setting but the quality of the food eclipses any negatives created due to the lack of view or atmosphere. Portions are very good and prices are very reasonable considering the quality... More

Fantastic Birthday Lunch. My wife chose this place for my Birthday lunch, she couldn't have chosen a better place. The food is amazing, she ordered the Jerk Chicken Wrap and I had the Nkomazi Chicken Curry Bunny Chow. The flavours are amazing and they just explode in your mouth. And to top it all off we ordered the Strawberry crumble... More
