We visited the Steenberg branch for the Monday night specials. You can get either fish and chips or any of the basic burgers (beef, chicken or fish) with chips and onion rings for only R55 each. You can upsize the fish from 200g to 280g, increasing the price to R75, and you have the option of getting it grilled and with salad instead of chips if you want to go the healthy route. I had the fish option and my partner the burger. He really enjoyed his meal - the beef patty was huge. My fish was good but greasy, as it can get when the oil used to fry the fish is no longer all that fresh.
So that was mostly fine, but before we ordered that, we got the "seafood plank" starter to share. This is a highly overpriced starter and I would definitely not recommend it. For R104, we got two small snoek samoosas, two normal sized tempura prawns, and 5 small strips of calamari, with their accompanying sauces. At best, that "plank" was worth half that value. We have never ordered starters at CTFM before and would probably never do so again if that is the value we can expect.
Lastly - service. We had a lovely waitress but she did not quite seem on top of things. My boyfriend ordered the pepper sauce with his burger, priced at R10 on the special and was initially charged full price for it. Also, it was his birthday month and he has a loyalty card so he was owed a R100 birthday voucher which the waitress just redeemed from the balance of his card (actually money received as a gift when the card was bought for him) instead of giving him the extra R100 birthday voucher. Fortunately, we queried and management was very efficient in sorting out all of the above. And I previously was not given my 20% discount (for orders taken between 16h00 and 18h00 every day when you have a loyalty card) until I queried. So it is highly advisable to check your invoice before you pay!!!
