Nice spot in Sandton City

Try their signature burger, it's delicious! The restaurant is a bit expensive, but worth it. Beautiful decor, good service.

I went there for my Boyfriends birthday. Such a beautiful coffee shop. Cake was amazing. Been there a few times for coffee and cake. I haven't eaten a proper meal there but my mother who has, loves the food.

I actually prefer different kinds of green tea and this was the place which served the best options. I loved the Ou-long but next time I came they took it off the menu. I was disappointed but they offered something nice instead which I enjoyed as well. It is just so much nicer as a lunch option than all the... More

I have eaten here several times and on each occasion the service was excellent, the quality of food was perfect. I once left my wallet and cellphone at this place for 2 days, the staff nor management stole anything form it...I had about R2000 in there. Highly recommended.

The bakery and desserts look extremely appetizing and the atmosphere created is cute unique and friendly. However there is one small detail that is lacking - the food. The food is very basic and is rarely executed well.

This multi-level eatery in the middle of Sandton City Shopping Mall is a great place to stop and have lunch whilst doing your shopping. They have loads of choices, from salads, to sandwiches, to burgers and more and I have always found the food to be fresh. Service is also attentive and timely. I would also highly recommend the ridiculously... More

Ordered a sweet chilli chicken salad but I didn't realise the chicken strips would be served cold !! The rest of the salad was just average and I would not order again. Awesome ceaser salad in the raddison blu was 100 times better.

My friend and I had always seen the walnut grove at sandton city everytime we go there as it is located in the heart of the passage close to the escalators that go down to the cinema level. It looked rather prestigious and very unique so we decided to try it out. I had an ice coffee and the eggs... More

I have been coming to the Walnut Grove for the last three years. The venue is great. The staff are friendly, the cake display amazing but the food is really bland. I guess that the chef does not sample the food that is prepared and the staff go not eat here. The Spur or Wimpy has much tastier food and... More
