Have being coming here since Sandton was built. Walnut grove has changed ownership 2 or 3 times at least and each time we are a little more disappointed. The location is great but everything else is average.

We had dinner there with our two young sons. • Great location within Sandton City • My vegetable soup was incredible. Full of tasty, chunky vegetables. • The children’s burgers are way too small. • Their lamb chops were nothing to write home about and way too pricey! • The service was fair. • Some of their meals are overpriced...

The Walnut Grove is ideally located in the middle of the Mall and serves the freshest food you can get. There is nice buzz from patrons and staff. The place is always busy but their service is very fast. Whether you are looking for a gourmet burger,sandwich, wraps, salads or anything you will enjoy it. The cakes are to die... More

The walnut, bacon and truffle pasta is to die for ! The décor is trendy and interesting . The service is a bit slow at times, but believe me the food is worth the wait !

Walnut Grove is my absolute favorite place to grab a coffee after an afternoon of shopping. Last night I decided to try out something to eat on the menu! The house white wine is pretty decent and the wraps are really good too. Waiters are friendly and the venue also has free WiFi

We used to be regulars at Walnut Grove, but with their literally bad food and don't-care attitude regarding customer complaints, we will NEVER eat there again and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to stay away. We were a party of 4 and waited over 40 minutes for our food to arrive even though it was a... More

Though I did have some initial problem connecting to the free wifi.Everything else seem to be very well organised.I had a glass of hot chocolate, and it came with a freebie-yummy tiny velvet cupcake. I love the ambience of the place.Very well done interior... More

We’re been there a few times, and each time the portions seem to be getting bigger and bigger. There is sometimes a small cue, but they quickly arrange a seat for you which is great. The staff are friendly, never seen the management, not entirely a bad thing though.
