“Great meat place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you want good food and a very buzzing atmosphere then this is the place to go. It is always noisy and packed with meat lovers. Get your meat fix here.

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We stumbed upon Turn and Tender at Illovo by error. We needed to find a restaurant on a National Holiday and was not really bothered which sort. Of course its mostly meat but they cater for all foody types as well. I have been eating steak for years and wasnt sure what to order. Ended up with a Fillet and Pepper sauce. I can honestly say I have NEVER had anything like this previously. Tender , well cooked, delicious, soft - made me wonder what I had been eating all these years. We will go back again most definately. Nigel Bellamy Botswana

“Great Family Restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This restaurant is always great for the service they provide. They make a real effort to look after the children, and are really accommodating in this regard. Now as for the food, they have to provide the best steaks in the most relaxed setting ... Best value for money, always on the mark!
