Whether you think the concept of the Potato Shed is a high one or a low one, it is unarguably well-executed. The concept? Good food, and potato in every course. There is nothing on the menu that isn't competently executed, and many of the dishes are truly delightful. I'd recommend the "Beer Battered Hake," the "Bunny Chow" appetizer, and anything that explicitly mentions potato in its title. A pleasant atmosphere and with delightful. efficient service.

Hubby and I popped in for an early lunch some weeks back. Very good service from the moment we stepped-in till we left. We shared a portion of sweet potato fries - absolutely divine! Love the sauce/mayo that accompanied it.

For mains, I had a baked potato. Hubby sought an opinion from the waiter on which would be the better lamb dish to order, and was informed he can't go wrong with the 'lamb spit braai' dish. My baked potato was tasty - I wouldn't have minded a bigger spud. Hubby's spit braai serving looked impressive and tasted great. It came with a small salad and some fries.

All items on the menu are well priced. However at +-R190 for a serving of their spit-braai, hubby would have preferred to receive a few more pieces of lamb.

I'm told they have live music on Sundays. Hope to go back with guests.

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.
