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.

Our Waiter was absolutely amazing, (Tall man), but the lady who greeted us at the door was very unprofessional and rude and did not even know about our booking, so why make an Effort to book and no one knows about me? But it was a Great Experience and we will be back again, this time with more Friends. Jacques

Hi there, We were very disappointed at the meal. Three of the meals arrived cold and the burger was very dry and tasteless. The service was also very slow and poor. This was very unfortunate as your prices are not cheap to leave feeling so unsatisfied.

The prawns really did not live up to my expectation with dry pieces of bread that served no purpose with too little sauce to dip them in. The prawn meat wasn’t great either. My partner’s ribs were average and the chips were good. I expected a culinary experience and was left wanting. Disappointing as we were so looking forward to eating here.

Limited menu. Not much to choose from. The J's chicken was blend and had no Peri-Peri. Waitress wanted to charge for more source.

The Food was really good however we did have a couple of issues on arrival. Menu was a shorter version of what’s advertised, the restaurant should notify patrons of this when making reservation. Some of the Glasses were dirty. Waiter and team though made a good recovery and the rest of our early dinner was very good and enjoyed the overall experience. It was great seeing J’Something stop by and chat to customers.

This was a bitterly disappointing experience. The atmosphere and decor left much to be desired. The restaurant was completely empty. One would think this would afford us the luxury and privilege of extra attention. Instead we received terrible food and no indication that anyone cared about our presence. Our waiter was decent enough; but everything else was unacceptable. We ordered Bao buns for starters. They were flavourless, cold, and the buns were wet and sticky. We then had the Samurai burger for mains. The burger was so salty it was inedible. The cause of the saltiness was the supposed kimchi. The restaurant's attempt at kimchi was waterberg lettuce soaked in soya sauce. It had no crunch; it had no spice; it had no tanginess. It was just salt. We had to send it back. We gave the kitchen another chance to rectify the error. The burger came around the 2nd time and the way to rectify their mistake was simply to add more mayo and hot sauce whilst retaining the same amount of "kimchi". We informed the waiter of our dissatisfaction. Neither the chef nor the manager came to see us or apologise. This was a horrible experience. We will not be going back.

I can't fault you on anything. It was my first time at the restaurant and I brought my mom along because we were celebrating Women's Day and wow, was she impressed. The service we received was outstanding and the food was divine but I need to emphasize that because of how Mpho and Kevin treated us, we'll definitely be back. Thank you once again and May God continue to bless each one of you.

Unfortunately a very, very poor performance. When making the reservation, the menu was available on-line. Thus we were looking forward to ordering a specific dish/es. However on the evening only a limited menu was available due to (as we were told) a large event in the arena. This should have been noted on-line. Will not be returning. Your waiters are also extremely slow...even for delivering drinks.

I was so excited to eat here, however, we were very disappointed with all the food labelled J's. Also waiting for someone to notice us abd serve us was also ridiculous. It started to feel as if J merely just put his name on the menu and didnt actually check or regularly check the taste of the food. The chocolate mouse was atrocious, fancy but didn't taste nice at all, and the 'soil' tasted like actual soil... Would not recommend the place, paying a high price for a special occassion, like a birthday is fine but it should be worth every cent and this place wasn't.
