We visited on several occasions and each visit is a surprise. Sometimes good sometimes bad. On our recent visit the eggs were cold and the bacon tasteless and oily. The toast was good and the coffee very good. Take potluck.

Stop in if you are in JNB airport with time to kill and hunger in pains in your belly . Lots of healthy choices including all day breakfast. Friendly service and reasonable prices make this an excellent option.

Being there for one dinner before the flight to Europe. The location is quite big, spacious with plenty tables and table seats. Even during rush hours you can still find a table. The serving time is decent considering the rush hour, food is ok, more American style. Some tables have power supply near by so you can charge your device... More

After waiting several minutes to be served and shown a table for seating, we were given menus for which we were told that certain meals were not on offer. For vegetarians, there is not much of a choice and they are unwilling to do any substitutions. I waited 15 minutes for confirmation from the kitchen before walking out resorting to... More

The hardest thing about airports is the waiting game. Oliver Tambo has a wide variety of choices ranging from Wimpy to Mugg and Bean. Mugg and Bean have a consistently good standard, with the bottomless coffee a huge plus to help through a long wait for departure.

Had a snack here while waiting for my plane to leave. The food was good but had to wait very long to be served and for the food. The sauce was a bit watery but still a nice snack. I would recommend a visit if you are patient and have a lot of time to kill

It was okay, service a little slow, people would cut in line, break the queue. Maddening, especially when in a rush. Banana muffin was delicious. Staff would heat feed if requested.

Mugg and Bean is my favourite part of travelling through Joburg airport. Food is always good, interesting and varied menu and excellent service.
