The food here is quite good. If you are at the Sandton Mall and looking for a good meal with an amazing dessert this it the place.

Being a family with 2 adult kids we had at Walnut Grove lunch and breakfast. They offer a great variety of food: delicious burgers, tasty salads, lots of different main courses. We loved everything we ordered: enormous, hearty breakfast, light, but huge salads and even their burgers are great. We did not eat any dessert as we come from Switzerland... More

Walnut Grove has been here for many years, but this has been renovated since my last visit. I love the natural tones and the wood being used so generously. Walnut Grove offers lovely small bites - toasted sandwiches, coffees, and HUGE slices of cake if you like. I decided against the sugar, but enjoyed every bite of my toasted sandwich,... More

I have been going to Walnut Grove for years, but will not go back again after my last visit. The place was quiet, a day before a public holiday, but the service really let them down. I ordered tea twice, with cold milk, and both times the waiter did not bring the milk and I had to get up and... More

Located in between levels in the Sandton City Shopping Centre, this restaurant serves average food at above average prices. But has very good desserts, which makes for a great stop along the shopping experience.

I recently visited Walnut Grove for breakfast and the experience was such that I had to write a review about it. Firstly, the food came in record time. Second, it was delicious! And third, the staff are so attentive to the needs of the customers. We were approached by the very hands on manager, Gary, who gave us some guidance... More

We stopped for a quick breakfast: decor is lovely and the ambience was nice, too. The menu did have an excellent variety of goodies on offer although we found it somewhat pricey. Good selection of coffees and teas. Croissant was good, but muffin didn't seem fresh (served warm, but as it got cold it seemed to harden). Nice presentation of... More

As always great ambience and set up. Cakes on display looked scrumptious. Although we popped in late we were warmly greeted and served by a lovely waiter. The place was quite full and vibey I still really love that they give you a mini red velvet cupcakes with your coffee

I attended a course in Johannesburg that only finished after 19:00 on a Sunday. We looked for a restaurant that was open in Sandton City. Walnut Grove was still open so we decided to eat there. The menu is varied and the service was very good. The food was tasty and freshly prepared.

I was disappointed by the size of the cappuccino, but it was very tasty. I thought I would have a small snack, but the muffin that arrived looked big enough to feed an army! The bill was surprisingly reasonable, so thank you for not over-charging.
