What a fantastic experience! Excellent service, excellent food, excellent ambience. Highly recommended. The corn bread was especially a treat.

We wen't for a cocktail and nibbles before our dinner, and we were not dissapointed.
The whisky cocktails were outstanding, with great presentation and value for money.
We ordered a board to share and we were surprised by every single ingredient used.
The service was attentive, rather slow but effective and warm.

A must if you are in the area!

Situated in the old JHB Potato distribution shed for the Market. The food is very ordinary and lacks flavor, the menu although is very different but flavors do not match the menu. Service is very slow and expect to wait for your meals and drinks. No children's menu. Presentation is funky and different, pity the flavor is just not there.

Went there for a team lunch. Service was good and we were placed at a good table. Service was decent. I had the pulled pork which was good. I am a meat and potato eater so didn't have an issue with the menu but some of the team struggled to find something to eat. One of the meals of meat skewer was full of bone and gristle.

Having visited The Potato Shed twice, the food has been fine, nothing spectacular. Fish and chips and fried calamari were both too greasy and should have been hot, rather than lukewarm. Salad presentation in a box, though inventive, was difficult to actually consume. Service was spotty - as with many places, lots of staff talking to each other with the occasional check on the patrons (or perhaps food preparation). Special requests related to the food were heard and adhered to. The location is handy for Market Theater. Sunday music was too loud to carry on a conversation; would have been very nice if just a little softer (we asked, but reduced only briefly). Nice décor and re-use of historical building.
