We stumbled upon The Big Mouth when walking back to our hotel. We were lured in by the good atmosphere of the place. The food was delicious, and the prices reasonable.

Can not criticize this establishment, it’s perfect for a simple night out or a special occasion one; definitely a step up from the average Sandton Square restaurants. Great decor too. As I said nothing much to fault!

Go for chicken Sticks and prawn bisque. It gets very busy at lunchtime because it has a nice variety and the food is tasty. The service can get slow, but just go with it.
