“Very good "Point Rump extra thick cut (max med rare)"”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We visited Thundergun on a Tuesday evening... early (around 18h30). The place was busy even at this early hour.

We ordered "300g Point Rump extra thick cut (max med rare)".
The meat quality was very good. It was cooked to perfection at medium-rare. We didn't dare adulterate the meat with a sauce.

The service was competent, efficient and pleasant.

This is not a quiet or romantic venue. Lots of families with kids.

The night that we visited, smoke from the bar was wafting into the non-smoking section of the restaurant.

“Landmark Steakhouse”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

We've been living in Northcliff for many years and the Thundergun has been with us all this time.
When reading that their Ribs were the best in Johannesburg we just had to go and try them out ,but alas , although you got gigantic portions and they were goodish definitely not the best in Joburg .Wines are well priced and the pub pumping. Still a great place to hang out though

“Relaxed, affordable, great steaks!”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

No need to dress up for Thundergun, but if you are looking for a relaxed evening with a fun vibe and amazing, huge steaks - this is the place to go! The prices are very reasonable as well.
