As always this restaurant will give you a great choice of superb steaks and cooked exactly as you ask. It offers a decent wine list too and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. On a visit two weeks ago, needing some greens to go with my massive chunk of meat, I ordered a starter (new to the menu we are... More

We actually went here because the restaurant we were looking for was no longer open. This was a great choice though! We were seated immediately. Our server was a very pleasant German woman. She took great care of us! I had the fillet cooked in the burned butter. It was wonderful! Perfectly cooked and very tender. Everyone enjoyed there meal.... More

I had heard that calamari can be rubbery, but had never experienced that until my visit to Turn and Tender - so rubbery that one could literally not chew it! Steaks ordered were average. Service was attentive. TVs hanging from wall with news detracted from one's experience - the last thing you want to be reminded of while going for... More

Polished off a 300g point rump cooked medium to perfection accompanied by a tasty bordelaise sauce. Chips crunchy on the outside soft inside. Good food good service. Will definitely be back next visit to Gauteng.

The Turn and Tender brand and the 4 brothers have been around for a long time. Their restaurant in Nicolway Shopping centre is very modern, clean, well-run and an excellent place to dine if you want a good steak. The Rib Eye steak with Chimchurry sauce is a must. Its a good idea to park on the mezzanine level on... More

We were a table of 12. Service was good, however when food came out the waiter could not remember who ordered what. The meat was good. This is a family restaurant - don't understand why there is no kiddies menu?

Late lunch, Sunday afternoon. We selected a quiet table away from the door, because we needed to chat quietly. Our drinks were served quickly and the salad starter was really good. The steaks were specifically ordered on plates and NOT on skillets. Unfortunately both steaks were presented on skillets! When will Turn & Tender realize that not everyone likes a... More

Nice ambience, great service. Main meal- Sirloin steak meant to be mediu- rare, maybe it was when it left the kitchen but it was served on a sizzling hot cast iron plate/ griddle/ skillet, which burnt me, my knife, the baked potato and overcooked the steak. The most tasteless meal I've ever attempted to eat and I was in pain... More
