We happened to walk by this place and went in because we were hungry and this did not disappoint. So much variety and all just really great quality. Would definitely recommend this place

I had some time to kill whilst waiting for my son who was at the nearby aquarium, so decided to wander around the food market and get some lunch. Am so glad that I did! I was initially stumped, there’s a huge array of tempting...street food choices, but the Lua poké bowl display caught and held my eye. Ordered the tuna bowl with the ponzu dressing- it was mind blowingly good ! Ended up buying to take home for the rest of the family, who all loved it too. Will definitely be visiting again.More

Located at the end of the Waterfront the entrance is across the four statues of the Nobel prize winners. A collection of 40 + stalls offering ''fast'' food i.e. pizza, burger, chicken, thai, mexican, juice bars, soups, salads, wraps, sandwiches, food bowls, rice rolls, shawarma,...nuts, chocolate, ice cream, popcorn and more. Not a gourmet place, but better than the real fast food chains for a quick bite.More

It's a bit iverpowering (i.e. smelly!) inside, but don't be put off! A wide range of ethnic street food; you can select items from different stalls and take it outside to eat if you wish. Great prices. There's even a stall selling vegan ice cream!

We‘ve stoped here multiple times on our long SA trip and I can highly recommend this place. Stop by and enjoy this multi different food place. Select a pizza from first floor or go for wraps from basement. Kinds love the playground around and you...will finds some time to relax and enjoy excellent food. While we have been there, some really good music player ... so, have fun and enjoyMore

By chance popped in for a snack lunch. Finished up with ciabatta with springbok (cooked when ordered) and salad - delicious unsurprisingly tasted like venison!

We found this place out of the blue although I suspect that the locals will say it the best place to get a quick snack meal in town. Wow there was everything food wise for sale and plenty of seating to enjoy it.

Great little food market selling a wide range of foods, most of which is cooked in front of you. Grab yourself something to eat and a beer and enjoy it at the seating area just outside.

Greatplace with a lot of different shops, regarding eating and drinking. You can take items out with you to sit at some tables in front of the building. Prices ok in relation to quality. We´d like to come back.
