Pecking Duck

Please visit this place at the JHB World Trade Center. Best Peking duck outside of mainland China that I have ever tasted. Crispy Chicken from Hong Kong is disappointing because it's dry. The Shanghai dim sum is awesome as very few places actually know how to make it. This is the only place that... read more

Worst service I have experienced in Sandton. Unresponsive surly waiters, average food and apathetic management... Don't waste your time...

Found thanks to Trip Advisors ( Near me) feature as a nearby walk to restaurant Gwefey (read why the name at the venue) turned couture to be a real revelation. Stunning decor great service and a real variety of not so often seen dishes. Good wine list no red lanterns or pinky plonk music. A trustworthy venue to impress a... More

Went to Gwefey for Mothers Day as previously enjoyed a good experience. Fans and extractors in restaurant were not working and place was smokey with many other patrons complaining. Waiters confused as to who was serving us, so long wait for drinks. Ordered starters and they came very late each in 10 min intervals!! Finally just cancelled my starter when... More

We were looking forward a an enjoyable evening of good Asian Cuisine but were left very disappointed. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. After our arrival we were constantly asked for our order as if being rushed. We ordered our Dim Sum and starters. The food arrived in fairly good time but half of our order wasn't brought to the table.... More

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

If you're after westernised Asian cuisine, this is not for you. If you appreciate the flavour combinations of authentic Asian cuisine, great presentation and have an afinity for dimsum or yumcha then this is the place to go. We thoroughly enjoyed the food here, stopping in for a quick snack, we ended up ordering a fair few things on the... 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
