It is a bit of a gamble whenever you go to this restaurant. Sometimes good sometimes bad. Great atmosphere but the quality of food, given the pricing is too inconsistent

Thought I would give this place another chance, having had a bad experience last time, which I reported here (and had no response from the management). Food this time much improved, but the service dreadfully slow, despite it not being full. Thirty minute gap between...starters and mains, and a lengthy delay to bringing the bill, which only finally arrived when I got up to leave. Could do better.More

Excellent - ate here twice in a week and both nights the food was wonderful. Very enjoyable starters (large portions) and perfect steaks with innovative rubs. Top tip - ask for the chips to be done a bit crispier than normal. They are amazing with...the peppercorn sauce!More

The atmosphere is good and the service from the waiters was good. I had a T-Bone with a baked potato, sour cream and vegetables. The vegetables were awesome but perhaps i made a mistake not ordering a sauce with my steak. I did not enjoy...the steak which was not done medium rare but medium to well and the sour cream was, well not what I was used to! The steak was tough and not flavorsome.More

I had such a wonderful time, the atmosphere was great and the music was great. In the evening the lights are warm and because it was a cold evening, it was just perfect. I had the Oxtail Dish with Mashed potato. They also serve it...with veggies It was beautiful, everything melted in my mouth. The portion was also perfect I had leftovers I could take home.More

Highly recommend. If you want proper steak then this is your stop. We were served by Brian and he did his best to make us enjoy our short stay here. Can't thank or sing enough praises about this place. One of the best in Johannesburg....Worth the price . Inkosi, Kia ora.More

Poor experience. My plate was cold, not as expected in the menu. I had to go to find someone taking care. When I got my new plate, it was still cold and my husband had finished it s one.

Great food and service from Sydney. Husband had steak and prawns. Steak was cooked perfectly and prawns were large in size. Potato leek soup and chicken breast were tasty and good portion size. Grilled vegetables were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Sydney was attentive without being...intrusive.More

The Bull Run restaurant is the on site restaurant of the Protea Sandton hotel. We dined two times and enjoyed the dishes (steak, kudu and chicken) and the presentation of the food. All food was cooked to perfection, medium rare was actually medium rare!! Nice...wine selection and some good beers on tap. Sydwell was both times our waiter and made our visit memorable.More
