Had a fantastic steak meal here whilst on tour of SA .. In Feb.
This was recommended to us by our tour guide & it didn't fail to live up to expectation!!
Quite simply the steak was the star of the show ... Glistening & oozing luscious meat juices !!!
It was also great to see the meat on display & the convenience of locals being able to purchase fresh meat to takeaway !!! Not seen anything like this place I here in the UK !!!
You really need to visit this restaurant to experience the ambience of the place & what a difficult decision to try & choose which meat to enjoy , such a vast choice of meats , sizes etc... Not for vegetarians though!! Lol
Would love to return someday !!!

The Bull Run does not just offer superb service but very tasty food. The waiters listen to what you want and the chef prepares everything to perfections. Alot of times I find when you ask for your steak "blue" you get it back medium rare. The food and experience at the bull run is excellent.

Enjoyed the ambiance on the outside veranda but we found the cost of drinks way way WAY too expensive.

You can't go wrong here. The mushroom starter with feta cheese and spinach is a meal in itself and the steaks are always good. I ate here two nights on the trot on a trip last month and I'm jo'burg bound in a few days time again so I'm sure I'll be back again. It's nice to have the odd temptation such as ostrich thrown at you with the specials so I'm wondering what will be on offer this weekend. A nice restaurant with a good ambience and the staff are always friendly. A must recommend to anybody in the sandton area.
