“Tasha's - Great for People Watching - Food/Service is Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Tasha's has a deep menu with something for every taste. The service and quality are outstanding. There's few places better for great people watching in Johannesburg.

“I actually felt ripped off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

I have been to this restaurant many times before but felt ripped off this time. I ordered the steak salad and paid the extra amount for the fillet option. When it arrived it was extremely sparse to say the least, with a massive covering of leaves and little else. There were 6 strips of steak and yes it did contain what the menu said it would but I question the R98 price tag.
I am not sure I will be visiting again because my complaint was met with a great degree of nonchalance - almost a case of we are busy and can't please everyone all the time.

“Great again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Went here on 3 jan. Most outdoor tables filled. The menu is extensive, and there's always enough staff to serve the demands. We had a tashas breakfast and a chicken/pasta dish. Both were more than enough portion wise and were most tasty. Highly recommended

“Good but not excellent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is one of the original branches which is still quite good. I used to visit them quite often however these days not as much. This branch and their Hyde park branch are my first choice to visit if I am to go for a lunch or dinner with friends or colleagues.

What is a nice touch is that each branch has its own supplementary menu. You can have a basic sandwich here or enjoy a brilliant chicken dish. Any branch is always good for a business meeting as well.

The Durban branch has a vegetarian burger which is actually very very good and well thought out. The mushroom pasta on the standard menu is great however I have fallen ill from it twice before from other branches.

I know of a few other people who have also fallen ill in the past and this is probably due to their hygiene control at these branches even though the place is always clean and you will see them scrubbing the floors after they close in the evenings. Not sure what goes on in their kitchen...

The Hyde park branch is worth visiting as it has a great atmosphere and their deserts are top notch. The mille fleur is probably the best I have ever had to date!

“Still the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Tasha's started at a single venue and then expanded over several years. There is no question that one thing no other such venture has achieved, is a 100 % success rate at duplicating service and food quality throughout their venues.

A wide and varied menu for breakfast through to late lunch, and suppers at a selected few venues such as Melrose Arch. Atholl Square remains my favourite for active business discussions in a relaxed environment. Pieter, owner-manager is still one of the best in the game.

For value/ quantity/ quality and overall experience, only 5-star evening restaurants (of which there are few in SA anyway) carry this off on such a predictable basis.
