I had only one complaint on the deep fried mac and cheese as a fellow chef I would recommend that it just goes in the oven for 4-5 minutes more but other than that I had a lovely time and an excellent main course with an unbelievable dessert absolutely fantastic, the host of the day was very friendly and it was really a great time.

Great service. Asked specifically if baby chicken in lemon herb was spicy. Emphatic no. Waited half an hour. So spicy couldn’t eat it. Waited another half hour. Chef redid it. It had a pasty sauce and was still very spicy. Couldn’t eAt it.

I recommend that your payment system allows for yo waiters to be reimbursed immediately of their tips when we as patrons make electronic payments. I don't like carrying cash on me I prefer to include the waiters tip in my bill and expect the restaurant to pay it out to the waiter immediately rather than making them wait for month end.

I ordered the Asian slaw with my ribs. I found the soy sauce to be too overpowering. Please consider tempering the soy sauce with mayo.

The menu was great! Food was good but, the portion sizes for the amount of money paid was unsatisfactory. The dessert range was flawed

The only negatives are that the tables were not cleaned promptly after each course. The 1 table for four was cramped ( insufficient space for drinks, menus and family bowls)

Highly disappointing. not worth your money. Ribs are from BRM which u can get from Picknpay. I am sorry but this is not your recipe. Food is way overpriced!!! Your price relates to fine dinning. Nothing was fine about this food. we would have been happy with Mike's kitchens Parktown. The Malva pudding is nothing special. Woolies does it a million times better. Horrible experience. My 10 Years olds hated it. The Expected so much from you, especially with them following you on MKR. The way you describe food is no where near how it taste.

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
