My friend and I had a meal at Big Mouth. The Prawn curry is amazing and is recommended for anyone who enjoys a bit of spice in their food. The drinks and service were also amazing. 5/5.

Was delightfully impressed with this place when I stopped in for lunch. Buzzy vibes and looks right into Nelson Mandela Square. You get a huge bread role when you wait and it’s served warm with butter and is to die for- was very happily impressed...More

The sushi is amazing, fillet steak was delicious and the lamb shank was succulent. A meal well enjoyed by my family as we celebrated my hubby’s birthday. Seating is a bit overcrowded and less personal, though.

An ok meal, not great but ok. I had a nice salad for lunch. A varied menu. Lots of tourists it seemed, but that was ok. Kind of reminded me of an Applebees in the States, solid but nothing great and surely nothing too imaginative....More
