Excellent menu with all the favorite dishes. The service was great and the manager took time to visit each table - which is rare these days. I would like to return to try their mussel pot a favorite of mine.

A friend and I are at Big Mouth, and I had the best sushi I've eaten in Africa. The menu has so many options that we went back the next day for another meal. Definitely worth a visit; you won't be disappointed.

Hi there. It depends on what you are in the mood for. The glass box in front has a vibey atmosphere and has great views of Nelson Mandela Square. The cafe section in the mall is more intimate and quiet. Hope that helps.
