The Schwabinger Stuben offers a good variety of German dishes and imported beers. There are numerous locations within the greater restaurant complex that offer a variety of seating / dining options. The food is possibly not the BEST German food I have eaten, but is certainly acceptable. A lot of it is clearly 'bought in' rather than made on the premises, but the overall quality and quantity is acceptable. There is a good choice on the menu.
The beer selection is quite extensive, and should satisfy anyone wanting a real German beer experience.
Parking is secure and ample.
My only complaint is that Schwabinger Stuben appears to be a bit of a student hangout, so be prepared for some irritating youthful exuberance. This can add atmosphere, or be plain irritating - you decide!
Overall, I would certainly go back.

I recently dined at the Schwabinger Stuben Restaurant in Randburg, Johannesburg. It was a great experience. The food was genuine homely German-style cooking, portions were more than generous and the prices extremely reasonable. The ambience was friendly and unpretentious. Our party enjoyed the evening immensely and will be going back very soon.

There aren't too many German restaurants in and around Johannesburg. The food was decent, but there are anew great draught beers that you can't get anywhere in the area... Beer and schnitzel on a hot high veld afternoon, you can't do much better than that.
