Waitress Lizzy was very rude. She was also not very helpful and didnt inform us of the multiple ingredients that wasn’t avalaible. Staff and management was sitting at the tables instead of assisting customers and / or cleaning the tanles or dining area. Will never go there again and will not recommend it to anyone.

We learn and we grow, making a reservation meant nothing because no table was reserved for us, the waiter just looked around and split 2 tables to made us sit. What a poor reception to something we were looking forward too. We asked the waitress a few minutes later to be moved as we were sitting near the door and it was cold and nothing happened. Our starter came - boring!!! our mains had nothing to talk about at all. Sad enough the guy next to us sent back his calamari starter, we knew by then that this restaurants name is bigger than it's purpose. We didn't go to social media to share this but we had a better meal at Nando's when comparing the chicken... We won't be back but thank you for asking !!!

Music is very loud impossible to have a conversation while dining. Food is bland and menu don't have a lot of options. Cocktails tasted like sugar water. Dirty toilets. Place is a disappointment!

Aaaah man...where do I start??? From making the reservation to leaving the restaurant after having lunch was just an experience on another level. The service, food, atmosphere and the entertainment was nothing short of amazing. It was my sisters 30th birthday, which I chose to celebrate at your restaurant and I must say, just thinking about how everyone made her feel, just brings me to tears. Thank you to Lauren, João, the Chefs and our waitress for making her day one to remember. We'll definitely be back!! Have a blessed day!!

We had the time of our lives at Something's cooking last Sunday. The food was so delicious. The staff was awesome and very friendly, big up to Smangele for taking good care of us :-) J was something else, he took time to come greet us which made us feel more welcome. We also enjoyed the open mic session and the performance by the great Oliver Mtukudzi. This obviously is our favourite restaurant

Sadly, I would not recommend Something’s Cooking as the food is overpriced and the service is lacking!

I enjoyed the food (Mexican charred corn and Japanese fried chicken) but a few guests in my party said that there were feathers still stuck in the chicken that was served. The taste and tenderness of the chicken was superb though. Whatever was on that corn was amazing! For some it was "the best mielie they've ever had". The drinks were great, and service was a bit slow, but acceptable for a table of 30. All in all a great experience at Somethings Cooking by J

Absolutely Awesome! First time attendees and it was great.... Tried something different for my wife;s B-DAY and the entire setting was divine going into the live show for DAUGHTRY! Definite must try out and pleased to say that we will be making our acquaintance again soon. Standing out in all the hustle & bustle at Time Square Casino.

The wings were too hot, we like our food with chilli however the chilli in the wings were so overpowering it lost all taste. The burger patty was dry, and you could taste that the chicken was parboiled before going on the grill. Based on the location and hype we would have expected a more profession menu than a laminated piece of paper. It felt like the waiter could not be brother with us, we can’t fault his service but the atmosphere we received was chilly. While the setting was nice there was no vibe in the restaurant. The one saving grace was the desserts they were mind blowing and worth every cent. If I had to go back it would be for the deserts only.

Hi there I went there for my one year wedding anniversary. The food was horrible to say the least. The chicken was cooked, no flavor. The prego no flavor or sauce. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to any one. Thanks Justin

The food was average. Nothing special and individual about it. Quite honestly, you’re only paying for the name and not the quality of food and the vibe.
