“Great steaks, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went to the Bryanston Turn and Tender and had a fantastic meal! The portions are very big and steaks were cooked to perfection. My fillet with pepper sauce was wonderful. The escargots were deliciously prepared in a creamy sauce unlike anything I'd ever tried before, but it was excellent!

“Didn't live up to expectation.”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The tables are very close together for a start. We waited for 10 minutes before we were asked if we would like a drink. I had snails as a starter and wish I hadn't as the sauce was not very nice at all. The intense flavour of brandy was very overpowering. My main of ribeye was not a very good steak at all. It had little flavour and was tough. I tried a bit of rump that my partner had and wished I had ordered that, as it had a nice flavour.

“Terrible Experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We went to the Nicolway Turn n Tender last evening. The place was packed so we assumed the dining experience was going to be a good one.
Big mistake
My trinchado was cooked to rubber and was sent back to the kitchen.
We ordered 2 x rib eye steaks, rare.
One arrived and it was fine, the other looked like a lamb steak very thin with no bone.
The waiter assured me it was a rib eye.
I sent it back and by the time it arrived back the others had finished eating and so we took it in a
take away box.
Will I ever go back
Never

“Best meat in Johannesburg”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Not only is the meat, and everything else, the best quality you will find in Johannesburg but the management is superb and are always welcoming and efficient.
