Absolutely disgusted with the lack of service, no managers in sight. 45 minutes wait for a meal And they forgot to order and had to wait 20 Minutes for a beer. No wifi and the airport wifi is the worst I've ever experienced in any airport. Expensive meals. Would not go again

A good restaurant located at the runway-facing side of the airport, international departures area. The food is quick, a cosmopolitan type of cuisine with good taste to it, recommended to be a filling meal before a flight to help mitigate against the dreary aircraft food. Recommended.

I get a coffee and the avocados on toast whenever I am in OR Tambo and it always hits the spot. Grab a newspaper and relax before heading through customs.

I've had coffee here a few times and it's always been very good. Muffins are tasty and it's all good value.
