We were curious because it said TRUMPS and we are Canadian. They have a very extensive menu, prices are good. We had the smoked salmon salad and the salmon meal. My salad was excellent with tons of smoked salmon on it and the grilled salmon...More

Our family met for a once in a year catch up with my brother from the UK and had a wonderful evening. They took a lovely photo of the family for my mum to keep and the food and service was great.

The name actually made me tempted to stop for a visit. And yes, it has nothing to do with Donald. The place serves great steak and ribs. The condiments they offer to add on your meal was pretty good. I love the peri peri sauce....More

Yes children are allowed and the menu sits in the midrange price bracket for the locals. We round it a little cheap thanks to the Rand being week against the UK pound. 😉

Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days. What can our patrons expect? Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop. Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking. With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be. We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them. We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!
