Been to the Bull Run on numerous occasions and everytime I am more impressed with their service and quality of the food. No matter which dish you choose it is always good.

Waited over 1 hour for order, arrived cold and wrong. Management tried to talk their way out of it. Bull run used to be good and one of the favourite restaurants in Sandton. Servica and quality has gone down to a suspicious quality. Not worth...More

Until a year ago you could enjoy good food in nice ambiance. Now it's completely changed - inadequate, unattentive service and average food. Reheated chicken and soggy fries were not what I ordered! Please try harder, there was great potential.More

Always very good, but generally a vegetarian's nightmare due to the myriad of excellent steaks on offer. Not particularly cheap by African standards, and although a big restaurant, best to book as it does get busy.
