Basically a Wimpy is a Wimpy is a Wimpy....This one is however conveniently situated on the Bult and cater for student habits such as the need to have a very late supper / or very early breakfast at 4am (when the McDonalds around the corner is closed). Clean restaurant, fast service but no toilet facilities inside the premises.

What's to say about a Wimpy? It's a chain like a Denny's. Nothing special, nothing great, but perfectly adequate. The breakfasts can be big and hearty at a low price. Otherwise it's basically burgers and fries.

Had my breakfast here. Location almost impossible to find in the mall. Offer nothing different to other Wimpys and will use because they have a healthy breakfast alternative.

After ordering we however got our food and drinks quickly but after eating and wanting to pay our bill we had to wait to get attention.

If you plan to breakfast , make sure you get there early. The Wimpy in the shopping centre gets full very quickly early in the morning for breakfast and then the service is not always to fast.

The wimpy chain, for me, is a value chain of restaurants for a quick meal when you are shopping in a mall. The quality of the food are consistent as can be expected of such a large group. Besause it is a "cheaper" restaurant that attract the young crowd, i find that the waiters are perhaps not so professional as... More

When you are out of your home country, sometimes its good to find familiar food. Wimpys has good casual food at reasonable prices with South African nuances. We had good service at 2 different locations & liked all of the foods we ordered for 5 people.
