“Simply the best...by far!!!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I cannot go a week without at least visiting Sanook once. They have the best pizzas I have had in East London, and possibly anywhere else for that matter. Their thin base, oven baked pizzas are delicious and contain only the freshest and yummiest ingredients. The burgers and salads are also phenomenal -- they cater to everyone from vegetarians to meat-lovers. The burger patties include vegetarian, ostrich, beef and even venison

The level of service is flawless; the perfect mix of professional, warm and friendly. You can see that the place is owner-run and managed by the level of pride and care that is taken to ensure that your dining experience is nothing short of of perfection.

A must try for anyone in or visiting East London!

“Great food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is great, food was excellent. Had to wait 40 min for table, but food and service made up for the wait. Best to make an appointment.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Food is excellent, mostly pizza and burgers, but a little bit more sophisticated than your average fast food place. The vibe is fantastic and the service top notch.

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Tucked away and can be easy to miss. Parking can also prove difficult. However great restaurant, great atmosphere. Food is amazing and at good prices. Service is fantastic and the staff are very welcoming. One of those places that rarely disappoints.

“Lovely atmosphere and tasty food!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Love the atmosphere at this restaurant. It's lovely to sit outside as there are gas heaters, fleece blankets and sherry to keep you warm!
Not to mention the fact that the food is yummy!
Absolutely love the fact that you have 4 options of what to have with your burger - my personal favourite are the sweet potato peels.
