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.

Having read the "Top 10 dim sum restaurants in Joburg" we were keen to try this one - well what a shock - the dim sum was a disgrace to any dim sum chef - how they can refer to it as dim sum is mind boggling - being so disappointed with the dim sum we ordered the peking duck... More

Disgraceful service, inedible food and pathetic management - sent the Peking duck back three times as it was soggy and partially frozen still. Eventually just paid the bill and left without having lunch. No effort at damage control and no apology for wasting two hours of my day.

Visited the restaurant one very cold and windy evening. Quite confusing getting into the restaurant and seems to have several private dining rooms. Initial service was shocking - the waiter must have been new and he knew nothing about the available wine and/or drinks. He then battled with any recommendations for food which could have been disastrous as the menu... More

To set the scene..... we were a large table in a private dining room. My food was fabulous: Dim Sum to start: I shared with a colleague so we each had two prawn dim sum and 2 minced pork. Could not say which one I liked best as both were excellent. This I followed with crispy shanghai duck - better... More
