No pretentions and full of character. Area does not attract you but well worth the visit. Good parking in the side streets. Good simple good value food.

Have been going to The Radium for years and will keep going for years to come. Manny the owner is a legend. Food is fair but add the atmosphere it becomes great.

The oldest operating pub in Jhb is still well run & kept. Fridays are especially nice with the Jazz band in the background and a nice buzz at the bar -no entrance fee. The food is well priced and good quality. It reminds me of a good old English pub (with Portuguese food...). There is no hint of commercialism and the fact that it still gets so busy in what is now quite a dodgy area is teatament to how much people love it.

Had a work function here a few years ago. I was surprised at how small it was as a lot of people recommended it, but we had a good time there.

I have been to radium on a number of occasions and it is generally pumping. They often have live music and then the noise levels are quite difficult to deal with but the food is tasty and even when we have gone in big groups the service has been good. There are interesting posters on the wall including News Headlines and the owner certainly has a sense of humour and will throw you out if you put your feet on the chairs (which is something that I am not averse to doing ;-)). It has been around for many years and has a strong following with a strange mix of clientele. Definitely worth a visit - memorable!
