Surburban favourite, moved to fabulous new space in Northriding Square. Famous for their "PortuGreek" cooking, offering the best of both. The Sunday Roast is legendary; best to book ahead as it's becoming a well-known secret.

We popped in here for lunch and the service was really good. We ordered moussaka and the rib eye steak and the food was really good. A really great spot for lunch / dinner - well worth a visit

This little restaurant is filled with delight! Portuguese/Greek cuisine at it's best, it's my family's favourite restaurant by far! I highly recommend Clay Oven restaurant, as quality, quantity, flavor and freshness is of highest priority! We leave satisfied EVERY time!

The atmosphere, the food and Joe, a pleasant combo. Good value for money. The Sunday roast is a must but book.

An interesting restaurant with a mix of food culture, Greek and Portuguese, both of which I seriously enjoy! It was a cold night in Johannesburg but the, Roast Pork-belly, with onion rings, thick cut fries, red-cabbage and caramelized onion sauce, soon warmed me up. My...wife and daughter, had the, Steak Roll and my son-in-law also the Pork-belly. It's a great little venue and must rock, when they have live music, we were there on a Sunday, so it was a little quiet. I would believe it to be family friendly and it's good value for money.More
