Fabulous night out with wonderful food! Will be back. Service and food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the "tasters' - had almost all of them - substantial portions.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Linden. They have great daily specials and is well worth the visit. True value for money. The Tuesday 2for1 flatbread special is not to be missed, Great service

Thanks for the review Ian. Much appreciated!

We visited as a couple for our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. There was, however, a private function, with a DJ, in a separate room and although the music was very well controlled it would have been beter without it. The service...was top notch. We had Thai mussels and Korean sticky chicken wings as starters, both dishes were nothing short of excellent. We had pork belly and nasi goreng as mains and both dishes were at best average with the pork belly being overcooked. Fortunately we finished on a high with ice cream and fantastic chocolate fondants and excellent coffee. We will visit again but definitely choose different mains.More

We have been to Choo Choo on numerous occasions, our favorite being the monthly Taste Destinations. We have experienced many different cuisines and we are never disappointed. The staff are always friendly and helpful and managers are always around. We have also ordered the "Rib...Riot" as a take-away and it was deliciousMore

Liked the mixed food menu, the good prices, the friendly staff and the good atmosphere. The only thing they can look at is to clean their laminated menus once in a while by just wiping it.

Since we first discovered Choo Choo we have been back quite often. The service is always good and the food really tasty. Their 241 flatbread special on Tuesdays is always great, and we like the alternative flavour combinations they offer. Also, love the naanwich and...the nasi goreng.More

Nice restaurant with good variety and some nice specials. Although the staff are friendly there is some work to do on their efficiency. We had the cheese whee experience and had to wait 45 minutes although we had ordered well in advance. I will go...again, but was a bit disappointed this timeMore

Having not been here before, we ventured out for their Wednesday Flaming Cheese Wheel experience. We loved everything about it! The interesting decor, the superb service and atmosphere. The Big Cheese experience was the highlight but we also loved the Lebanese Dipping platter and Gin...on tap! Awesome night out and will definitely be back!More

The food is good. The service is good. But if you are a non-smoker and you do not want to eat with smoke in your nostrils, stay away. The door between the smoking and non-smoking areas is permanently open. We had to change tables just...to try to get away from the smoke. It was better but still pretty bad. Even after we have spoken nicely to the manager, it did not change at all. She said they are going to change the division between the smokers and non-smokers. When I asked when this will happen, she said after the World Cup. Well, that can mean anything. In South Africa it is any case illegal to mix the smoking and non-smoking areas. It was a bad experience.More

Tasty food (we had flatbread) for a reasonable price. Good specials (food and drinks). Cool decor. Loved the games available in the pub section and the fact that (well-behaved) pets are welcome.

Nice little restaurant - quaint. The waiter may have been drunk and the food was disappointing (cold pasta, tasteless ribs). Very unfortunate. But if you drink enough.. you could overlook the faults

We have been frequenting Choo Choo Junction for a while and have not yet done a review.......It's time. Anyone looking for a relaxed venue for an after work drink and snack, look no further. Even better for a outing on a Saturday afternoon. Outside seating...is limited, so make sure you book in advance to secure your table overlooking 4th Avenue, Linden. The lunch menu is good, and changes frequently. Always a surprise waiting for you. I can recommend this restaurant. It is not a formal-style establishment, and don't expect anything fancy. You get down-to-earth hospitality, that will ensure you return time and again.More
