We had a lovely meal sitting on the verandah. Lizzie was an attentive waitron. We enjoyed all the meals we had ordered. The starter platter of wings was a winner! The only negative aspect of the afternoon was the incessant hooting of the taxis. Can a QUIET ZONE not be applied for? It is so off-putting and very distracting. Please take this comment into consideration.

The food was amazing and affordable. The ambiance was a bit dead though and the place could do with some aesthetics. It was our second time after 2 years and the place hasn't changed much, i expect to see more. But ill definitely go back.

Please add to your menu that the braised beef brisket has chillies on as it does not say so on the menu and if you don't eat chillies you are going to get a surprise :)

I am very dissapointed in our experience at J Something. I originally pre ordered that champagne be put on our table. When arriving, there was no champagne, in fact there was no champage the entire evening. Secondly, the most unacceptable health risk which I never in my life experienced, being served food that has gone bad. When the pork belly arrived in front of me, I could smell that it was off. After concensus with eveyone at the table, tasing and smelling, it was confirmed, I was served BAD PORK. A big no no and that for me spoilt the entire evening. The Manager gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and for that and for the kind waiter I gave you one star, but will never put a foot in your restuarant again and most certainly will not recommend to anyone. We never even got to see the special birthday surprise for my husband after spelling his name twice for the waiter. Had such expectations, but failed on all accounts. POOR

I was not happy that we were not told ahead that a certain meal was not available or out of stock - goat cheese salade. My partner's meal was a tad blend and dry. Really needed a sauce to bring it all together or something - the sea bass dish. My ribs were delicious actually. A bit on the tough side. But enjoyable. The waitor was awesome! (And yes, water with one ice cube is a thing 😅)

Very pleasant and quiet on a Wednesday evening. The service was good but just a little bit slow.

Food was excellent! First 2 drinks we ordered was fill singles,from then on we did not get full singles. Drinks was watered down. And not up to par. Atmosphere was good. Overall was an amazing experience except for the drinks that was definately not on par.

Most of what we ordered was "out of stock"...no fresh garnish for champagne, we settled on frozen, but that too was out. Wanted the salmon dishes but that was out of stock. The cookie dessert was great but the cheescakse was more cinnamon and pumpkin.y.

Dear Something's Cooking team, Thank you for hosting our party of 8 for my birthday on August, 06. Personally, I loved the set up and the ambient music was incredible. Service was a tiny bit slow initially, but I then came to realise that it was due to the meticulously prepared food that admittedly would have taken longer to prepare. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was enjoyed by all. Being a foodie myself, I could feel the thought and love that went into the menu. The plating was fantastic with a taste to match! I will be back soon to sample some of the burgers and have a few more Jin Gins! Cheers, @bhavsannasi.cooks

We came from Durban to stay at the Maslow and part of our package was to eat a J Something. The experience was amazing and the vibe , resturant was perfectly situated over a beautiful city view. Food was just delicious, really enjoyed J Something Peri Chicken meal with mash it really hit the spot. I reccommend this resturant to everybody. Jade Rathan

I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The blankets that were given to those of us who chose to sit outside were a nice touch. I ordered the karate kid burger and it was delicious. I will however say that the vegetarian options on the menu are incredibly limited. Vegan options were almost non-existent. The last suggestion would be to please add signage to the restaurant from the parking bay. The staff was welcoming and not overbearing at all. Loved each one of you. Thanks.

Restaurant was so busy, we waited an hour for our food. The waiters couldn’t give us adequate attention-eg they didn’t ask me what flavour I wanted on my chicken, so it burnt the hell out of me! 😜

Our table that we booked 7 days in advance was occupied. Food took Avery long time and not great. Service by Lizzy was excellent.

Will not recommend your establishment to anyone. Booking confirmation received no table available when we got there. Pathetic to say the least. Can't rate anything wish there was minus 10

Host did not know where is table 33 waiter got my order wrong. She never asked for my drink order I needed to ask her to take my order. When we received the menus we only got 3 but we were a table of 8 people. We needed to ask for drinks and cocktail menu otherwise we wouldn't have gotten any menus. Terrible service and will not recommed the place to anyone.
