I have been a patron of Thundergun literally for decades. It is interesting that many people even outside of Jhb know it, mostly from years past. Recent visits for Friday lunch with the old boys and occasional family treat evening have proven that history can...repeat itself, and the Thundergun remains a wonderful meat lovers destination. We often argue whether they should refurb as it is a little dated and grubby, but for me now in my mid 60's, it remains a very pleasant blast from the past. If you like great ribs or the best burgers in town, don't pass by this legendary destination. (if you can get in.)More

I was absolutely stunned with the presentation of the food. Not only did the chef know how to plate, but the uncanny ability to do mediem rare (not that difficult) and medium (extremely difficult) but was also an expert in applying the spices on the...rubbed rump. The food quality and quantity was absolutely the best. The service was always with a smile and fast. It seems that when they sell a 300g steak it is the cooked value not the raw value. If you love meat and old world service, meet at the Thundergun!More

Sunday lunch, what a disappointment! Why have the standards fallen so low so quickly. I have never had worse burgers ever. Soggy, gritty and sour. The veggies must have been days old, watery and tasteless. Milkshakes insipped and sent back. Trying to cut corners? Not...sure why as they are any with charging. Sad how the mighty have fallen. Won't be going back there againMore

Love this place. It’s authentic, stood the test of time and the food is legit. It’s always packed so get there early to get a table.

The service was awesome. Paul is driving a great establishment with his great team. We were in a rush so we phoned in our order 10 minutes prior to arriving, the waitron took our order and after seating us and getting us our drinks, our...food was delivered and the steak, egg and chips combo was cooked to perfection... What a great iconic Northcliff >30 year establishment...More

Whenever we visit Thundergun, I wish I have a bigger stomach so I can eat more. Even if steak is not your thing, their veggies are delicious. And by veggies I mean chicken. But no seriously, the sides are great too.

This restaurant never disappoints. The steaks here are always incredible and cooked just as you ask. The staff are friendly and consistently check in on your table to ensure everything is good to go. The restaurant is extremely popular and busy so if you plan...on going during the evening or during the weekend, make a booking or try get there a little earlier.More
