“New Management???”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Yes this is sadly I am saying this about Mikes Kitchen in Boksburg as there food and Decor was always pleasing and the food was excellent, then it changed management and things went down food, decor and service - Then once again it changed Management and things were slightly different but the food stepped up a notch or two but many changes and a little on the expensive side - This was a great place to eat still is but not what it was

“Great Food, Great for the kids”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Mikes Kitchen in beyerspark serves up traditional steakhouse fare and more recently have added a few gourmet dishes which are of top quality
The Carvery buffet is still on the go although i do prefer to do there speciality steaks , one in particular, the port glaze and blue cheese fillet which is delightful
The restaurant has an area for kids parties, where the little ones can make there own pizza
the chef places their creations in a pizza oven to cook infront of the seated kids . This is done at great value for money and very entertaining for the kids , there is also a play area outside with the usual equipment

“What happened?”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Personally, I used to love to go to Mike's for great food, the awesome Salad selection and Great Veges to name a few things but sadly, it's just not the same as before...

The food is average and the decor is not as "homely" as it once was. Maybe they were just having "one of those days" but the general atmosphere on the eveing that we were there just left a bad taste in my mouth.

I'm not writing them off completely at this stage but they have some serious "pulling up socks" tasks to complete.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Visited Mikes Kitchen and went back on the next evening because we had such an excellent experience. The food was delicious, served in large portions with fresh ingredients and well priced. Service was fantastic and children were kept entertained in a supervised play area so we could relax and enjoy. Definitely schedule a return visit!
