I liked the menus concept at this restaurant very much, based on commodities trading, it also did a great job of showing the prices of the meals in different currencies and how many times the dish had been ordered. The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere to it and the staff were very nice and had a interaction with you without being overbearing. The steaks were fantastic and wine selection excellent.

I was with a collegue in the Sandton Hilton and looked for a steakhouse in the area. We just walked into the restaurant without reservation and got a table right in front of the kitchen, next to the displays of the various cuts they have. Nice atmosphere and simple but excellent guidance from the 'chief butcher' on the different kinds of meat and cuts. Very nice and tasty t-bone steaks combined with an excellent SA wine list. The cooking may have been slightly overdone vs. the order, but it was just delicious. Highly recommended.

ps. when you go to the restroom, look at the signs at the bottom of the stairs... You have to just love the humor in a steakhouse (-;

My wife and Ia te at The Bull Run in April and were so suprised by the good value for money, the food was excellent, no wonder they are a finalist in the steakhouse of the year competition and it was really well priced. Will go back again for sure!

I ate in here virtually every night I was in Sandton, as the food was very good and the extensive menu meant there was plenty of choice too. Would recommend for sure.

The restaurant is very nice in a good location, close to the Sandton shopping mall. I enjoyed some grilled Mozambique prawns that were very good. I'm looking forward to going back to try other things on the menu.
