Description: Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days. What can our patrons expect? Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop. Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking. With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be. We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them. We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!

“Great, inexpensive food & drinks”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

A huge meal with shooters and beer for only a few dollars. The only downside is that when it rains, the canvas roof leaks (badly in some spots)

Reviewed May 28, 2014

After having a good time round the Mandela square and shopping, my friend and I walked into the restaurant. We were met by very pleasant and friendly staff. We also enjoyed the meal.

“Great value, great food”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I recently visited Trumps Grillhouse at Mandela Square in Sandton. The food was amazing. The steak was perfectly cooked (I'm very picky), and the monkey gland sauce was spot on. many restaurants struggle to get a good sauce done perfectly. the dessert menu provides good value. The service was good. I can definitely recommend, and will visit again in the future.
