Two words: TERRIBLE SERVICE Being of chinese origin, I was looking forward to some authentic food. We went for a quick weekday lunch to the Sandton GweFey. What a let down. I'd say the only relatively authentic dish are the Beef Noodles. Avoid drinks such as fruit juices and green tea cappuccinos - they are horrific. We ordered a "berry... More

I have just eaten here for the last time. For R480, we got barely enough food for two people and the quality of it was lacking. We got a lamb dish that was R188 and most of the meal was bone. Not big bones that could be eaten around, but small shards of bone that made eating it rather unpleasant.... More

I have been to many places just to explore the mouth melting Delicious Dimsums . The best by far was in Shanghai China . The dimsum we had in Gwefey in Sandton was good . Something I was looking to find in Joburg for a while. I am glad At least now I can pop into Sandton for the best... More

I visited an outlet of this restaurant that recently opened in the Sandton City shopping mall. To those that know the Sandton City shopping mall - it is located on the mezzanine level near the Checkers. I particularly like the Asian decor and styling of this venue. Unlike some of the other venues in Sandton - service was top notch.... More

Went for breakfast with a friend whilst on a business trip, beautiful setup, different themes incorporated in one place. The starters were out of this world & big enough to fill up empty tummies, we had our main dishes packaged as we were now full. Service was good and a very scenic view.

My fiance found the details of Gwefey on the web this week and said that it had won so many accolades as a new restaurant... so we gave it a try! BIG mistake! Thursday night is a very busy night for restaurants in Jhb. When we walked in, there were only 4 tables with guests. Not a good sign, but... More

it is not a chinese it is trying to be taiwanese. We were 3 friends we ordered a lot of food for sharing , the chefs specialities were the worst ones, dim sums were average, meats below average, soups and sea foods are below the average too. Prices are high for Johannesburg.
