“Very good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Enjoyed the sushi, value for money given that it was half price on Weds. Don't know if I would pay full price for it though.

“Excellent Sea Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Coming from Hoedspruit, I don't want to miss the opportunity to have a scrumptious lunch at John Dory's. Their prawns are soooo nice; I can't stop eating. Also their specials are such a real good value for money. Good fresh food, nice staff. And even for my hubby, who hates seafood and fish, there are plenty of other foods to choose from the menu.

“Dissapointed 2nd Visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

First time round in Feb 2014 all was very very good. We were looking forward to the second visit 14th March, but service was slow, young scholars assisting with the waiting of tables made more noise than necessary., steak over cooked.

“Innovative specials”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Consistent food quality and their specials are usually good value for money. The membership card, birthday and anniversary points system are an innovative and attractive marketing strategy.
The Wednesday sushi specials are particularly good value.
