If you are dying to try something different then this is the place. The flavor pairings are very unique. The green curry martini, ta cos and duck were definitely the highlights on the menu. Our waiter had great suggestions and made us laugh the whole night. An awesome evening overall.

I am beyond dissapointed in my experience at PLC. The fact that we went during level 3 lockdown for my sister's birthday and spending R900 each, you would think that you would be welcomed with enthusiasm, asked me if I wanted something to drink, or atleast wish the birthday girl a happy birthday. All of which did not happen. The worst part is that in a time when people don't necessarily have that amount of money to spend at a restaurant, but still do, the establishment don't live up to their reputation. I really felt done in leaving there. I would not recommend.

Fantastic lunch, amazing food, great service, probably the best meal I have had in 2020. The polenta chips with the smoked tomato sauce was absolutely delicious

We always enjoy Pot Luck for their amazing food, served to perfection! The service just seems to lack a little, we have found this at most visits, the waitress is not very attentive with drinks, however, the food is always amazing!!

We visited the PLC for my birthday dinner on a Tuesday evening in October. On arrival we were welcomed by a gentlemen who didnt fulfill the role of a host in the slightest.

The food was fantastic and perfectly balanced, whilst service was pretty hit and miss. During normal circumstances I would understand the restaurant being busy and service not being on par, however on this evening we were 1 of 4 tables.

No birthday plate after my partner had specifically emailed them about our celebration. Eventually my partner had to approach the manager who said it was his mistake as they had a note in their reservation book.

Would I visit the Pot Luck Club again? Probably not, it's one of those once off experiences that has earned its reputation thanks to the food but has mediocre service that just cant compete on an international level.
