I was recently at Licorish for a business lunch. I have to say I am not a fan of the setting, in a shopping mall, but unfortunately this is something you have to get used to in Joburg! I went for the salmon main, whilst everyone else went for the fillet tasting plate... The salmon main is a small portion,... More

Licorish is one of my most favourite restaurants in Joburg - the food is always great and the staff are incredibly friendly. Jacques has put together one of the best restaurants I have been to.

We were served by Michael and he definitely knew the menu well. Just a problem with the actual lighting as it made it difficult to see the words on the menu, overall the food was good, the starters were very nice but the butter chicken had a great entry taste and then goes bland. The steaks we ordered was very... More

We had the tasting platters with wine pairing and I can not recommend it highly enough - everything was absolutely wonderful, with a very high level of attention to detail and wines that matched each dish perfectly. The dessert tasting platter will be haunting my dreams until I return...

Captain 'Richard Babaganoush' made our evening special from the time he booked our reservation to the dessert being served. The food was absolutely sumptuous. Highly recommend the seared salmon and the steak with potatoes. The dessert platter was the area that could been improved on. Seemed a bit pricey for a small portion of standard creme brûlée and two other... More

What a gem in the North! This restaurant looks so simple tucked in amongst the others all in a row. Once the food arrives you realise that it is really unique! We ate there in a party of five on both occasions and everyone had different meals. Everything served was just to rave about! Most unusual in my experience! On... More

Fasntastic dining experience. 'Lamb' and 'game' tasting platters were outstanding, both in taste and presentation. 'Fish' platter is to be tried next time. Tried Sea food Laksa, contained muscles, crab, lobster and prawns in a creamy sauce. Good comfort food. Excellent service!
