We have been to TM a number of times and have always had a good experience. The food is excellent and always something diffferent or novel on the menu.

Parking is not great, but there are guards who can look after cars.

Also know that the owners have another resturant in Brysnston called Red Rabbit.

Thomas Maxwell honors its "family name" bistro...it's the closest thing to a French bistro you can find in JNB. The food is excellent (although sometimes a bit complex), the service is perfect and the ambiance great. When in need of a refined dinner in the gold city Thomas Maxwell is a sure bet.

This bistro has been around for many years and I celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary there 8 years ago. BUT it has improved over time and is now 3X its original size. The service is exemplary and the food to die for! Parking can be a bit challenging and the car guards an extra hurdle but it is worth it. Suitable for everyone from secretary lunches, couples romantic meal, guys celebrating anything and simply a venue to include in your fine dining. BUT book in advance. It is always full.

Thomas Maxwell is definately marketed as an upmarket venue. However despite the great decor and good service the food doesn't live up to the promise. The food is average for the price you pay and the expectations.
