We dined at the Knysa restaurant and had such a superb meal, so thrilled when we found out that Senza has a sister restaurant in Johannesburg . Senza which is near Bryanston is a very funky restaurant (great decor) with a bar that serves exceptional cocktails. The food was absoloutely divine, the pizza bases probably the best outside of Naples! Very reasonablly priced for such big portions. A great spot for both families and groups of people. Would definately recommend.

I have read some of the previous reviews and I can say with confidence that this place is without a doubt one of the best places to eat in Bryanston. The modern décor, the smiley faces of the waiting staff, the exceptional quality and reasonable sized food portions add up to a great experience. As a regular international business traveller it is fair to say that I have eaten at many restaurants and café's throughout the world from multiple hatted restaurants to the local Crepe' cafe in Paris. This place is different, I deliberately visited on more than a couple of times to try the varied menu and I couldn't fault anything. The meat was cooked perfectly to my liking, the sides were placed perfectly on the plate rather than just thrown on, the grilled calamari was sensational, my favourite pepperoni pizza with added feta (a favourite of mine) and don't get me started on the deserts.I Couldn't get enough of them, the creme brulee, the deconstructed chocolate brownie (yummeeeee'). Guys keep up the great work, special thanks goes out to Roland (owner), Johny the smiley Greek host and the rest of the management and staff for making my visits enjoyable. All the way from Melbourne Australia - Bill

Our table of 8, had mixed results. 50% extremely small portions, and we prefer smaller portions, 50% got cold food. The waiter was nowhere to be found on numerous occasions. Pity as the place and menu looks amazing.

We have now tried Senza three times and will most certainly not go again. As the restaurant has not been open that long we kept on hoping that things would improve, but unfortunately this was not to be. The waiters really do try but there is never any supervision around to help them. The wines are over priced and should there be a reasonably priced wine on the wine list, they never have stock. Portion sizes are extremely small for the prices charged.
