“Choices, choices, choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Pleasant location with good views from some of the tables but more than that, exceptional food. Very extensive menu and good wine selection. Depending on what you feel like on the night, you can go for anything from Sushi, Dim Sum, Asian Seafood and other dishes or you can just go the Western route and have a great steak, some chicken or "vegetarian". I was so excited the first time I went there I wanted to try everything but that is virtually impossible. Since then, I have been back many times and have yet to be disappointed. Lets say, I am slowly working my way through the menu. On the expensive side, but definately worth it. Good idea to book in advance as this is a very popular restaurant.

“Roast Kong Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Great ambiance, great food.
I enjoyed the view. I also visit Reflexions Thai Spa (also at The Buzz Shopping center) and the combination of an authentic Thai massage with great food afterwords was out of this world. Highly recommended combination.

Pleasant and airy location overlooking a wetland area which in JHB is rare. Reasonable pricing and the "angry"duck is very angry .. even the mild !

“EXCELLENT RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The food is exceptional. It can be a little expensive, but well worth it. You will need to book in advance if you want to get in as they are very busy and once there, you will understand why
