While the grill looks a like a small spot in a small shopping center, don’t let that fool you. The steaks were out of this world and the service top notch. Highly recommend a meat stop here.

We serve halal meat and grill on separate grill. So Halal friendly. We are not a Halal restaurant. Call us if you have any other queries.

Sorry, our Speedpoint's only take credit cards when you are present. We can't do it like a travel agency. I think it's a security issue for restaurants.

Description
Chaplin’s found its roots in Melville since 1980 and Rainold Petersen who moved to Hurlingham in 2012, changed the name to Chaplin’s Grill in tribute to his legendary Melville-based bistro – a gem amidst the fine dining establishments of Joburg in the 80′ & 90′s. At Chaplin’s Grill Rainold revives, within a contemporary dining context, his passion for delivering a superior product of Food, Wine, Beer and exemplary service with a trademark hands-on approach.
