Great service. Best halal burgers I’ve had on my trip to Cape Town so far. The restaurant is small so not much seating place so we took our food to go. Really worth a visit

My son took me here as it was on a to-do list of restaurants that he and his friends wanted to visit. The initial impression of the shop itself was appalling. Dirty, unswept undecorated, skeleton staff and drinks not available. The menu has no pictorial...clues, but obviously sells various sizes of burgers up to a "Colossus" size. We ordered, went to buy our drinks elsewhere, and still had another 10 minute wait after returning. The restaurant was to filthy to eat in, so we went to a nearby park. The taste of the grilled burger was extraordinarily good. However both it and the chips (in particular) seemed to have a lot of oil about them. Unless I'm feeling like something hugely substantial laced in oil, I won't be returning- despite the superior taste of the burger.More

We’ve been big fans of Woodies in the Waterfront and was disappointed when they had closed. We’ve tried the Claremont branch and it’s been a really poor experience. The burgers are dry, chips are oily and the shop looks run down. We’ve been to the...Claremont branch probably 5-7 times from the time the opened, to as soon as last week. Things aren’t the same as the Waterfront branch and we aren’t going back again. This is burger joint is a no from me unfortunately.More

Very tasty burgers and a must visit when we are in CTN. They have moved from the waterfront but the new place which was easy to find. Limited and simple menu but the chips used are not of a very good quality.. seems over fried..

Always delicious! Fast food made with quality ingredients. Be prepared to wait for your order because all of Cape Town knows how great their burgers are. Go across the road to Woolworths to do your shopping while you wait for your order. Staff are always...friendly.More

Placed order at 7.50...could see it might take a while but thought the prospect of a good burger would outweigh the wait. The priority it seems is to get the telephone and delivery orders ready first...if you make mistake of ordering at the place be...prepared to camp out. After asking twice where my burgers where to be told they are just coming to getting them finally 30 minutes later. Fast food this is not Whilst waiting another customer asked where her order was and she too had been told to come back in 15 minutes 30 minutes ago... all for one burger and chips ?? Both of us encountered poor rude unsympathetic staff ..they couldn't care less it seems and I doubt the bosses even take note . Anyway got home which is about 5 minutes drive to find my just hot off the grill freshly prepared burgers not even barely warm . The BBQ basting tastes like a burger king Whopper ... The chilli one is not too bad but the edges of my Patty was burnt no not great. Ate it Forgot it Should have gone to burger king for the same taste experience and been In and out in 5 minutes not 30 minutes. Poor service from local eateryMore

This is a take away food business. Staff are friendly and efficient. Fridays around 6pm is chaos, lots of small families to be prepared to wait 20 to 30 minutes. Try the cheese and chilly beef burger, nice and spicey served with loads of chips...this wont leave you hungry! Open lunch and supper. Hard working team producing great burgers! Have not tried a chicken burger. Also sell soft drinks and water. Cost is good 2 chilly and cheese burgers with chips cost R 115!More

I love the food although the service and overall experience is below par. The hamburgers are really excellent. The woodfired grill provides that flavour boost that makes this place truly special. I only wish that they worked on the overall customer experience. I do not...enjoy the very smoky interior as you leave smelling of smoke and the long time taken to prepare your meal is longer than Nando's. Which says a lot. Despite all of the above if you have time and do not mid the smoke then please do try this place.More

With hardly any exterior signage you might never find out that this place exists. Their burgers and chips are incredible. You can choose between hot or not... But whichever you choose you'll be pleasantly surprised. Really, really good burgers that'll make you return for more.
