Had a very good time at Urbanologi. Staff is friendly and food is delicious. Especially the duck pancakes, spider steak and mushroom spring rolls. Smoking only allowed outside. Safe parking for your car in a guarded parking lot for R20. Beautiful interior as well.

This trendy restaurant in Johannesburg is worth a visit. Their Asian inspired menu has its dishes grouped into different preparation styles (i.e. raw, cured, steamed, etc.) which is quite interesting. The portions are small and made for sharing, and are very tasty and beautifully presented. Although they are a bit on the pricey side, I recommend that you order dishes out of the different categories to get a fuller experience - it is worth it. The dining area has a vibey atmosphere with graffiti against the walls and the open kitchen that adds to the excitement. It also shares a space with the Mad Giant Brewery, that I reviewed separately, which means you can go order their delicious drafts on tap. I would recommend that when you go, that you make use of Uber (or a similar service) - it's not in the best area, but they drop you off right in front of the restaurant so you do not need to stress about parking.

The food was hit and miss. We had dined here once before and not loved it but thought we’d give it another go (this time with a large group). Some of the food was good and some of it was just average. We also ended up with food that we hadn’t asked for and when we questioned it, we’re told we had misunderstood. The cocktails were also very average - a complete waste in ordering them.
The service was average and at the end of the meal, we left a suitable tip but were then told that there was a mandatory 10% tip that they’d ‘forgotten’ to include on the bill.
Would not recommend
