This is a hotel restaurant, however, serve brilliant food with great service. Best kingklip I had in a very long time. Their menu has a large selection and the food is fresh and extremely tasty. Steaks and chicken are also very good. Highly recommendable restaurant in the Balalaika Hotel, Sandton.

Once again excellent food, Steak, wine and service. Thank you Godfree you did them proud. Rib eye was fantastic and washed down with a lovely bottle of Fat Bas**** Pinotage. This place remains my number one selection for a great evening and the staff are both friendly and professional - well done and once again well deserved.
