Jinmys killer prawns at gateway is very average. The food is stale and tastes pre cooked / abit like plastic. The bathrooms are in a terrible condition. Dont know why they havnt done something about it. Really disturbing. Really wish they would up their game as they have so much of potential

Firstly note that this review is for the Jimmy's Killer Prawns in Pietermaritzburg. I can't seem to find an option for them. I have always loved Jimmy's Prawn Promise.

Everything on menu is so good.my choice is the platter with rice,chips,large fish and 6 large prawns served with kashmiri sauce.the service ig great and friendly staff and waiters.nice place for a family eat out.simple but elegant design.

Was disappointed with my meal and venue is very tired and dated,cloakrooms most probably the poorest in Gateway complex,not the place to have a celebration.Service was good and waitron helpful. I would also suggest the burning of a few scented candles,did not like the smell.which to me was not conducive to dining.

This place is not licensed and for that reason alone I would say it is not a good place for large parties. However, what it is good for, is stuffing yourself silly on the cheap. The food is also good for the price. Big portions, especially if you have a platter

When i walked in for dinner, not one of the 3 waiters at reception made effort to greet me. I had to ask the manager to be seated. Waited 15 min for drinks order. Got up and left without anyone noticing and without placing an order

My hubby and I frequently visit this establishment in the pursuit of excellent seafood. Jimmy's is number one in my book when it comes to seafood. Their garlic bread is heaven on earth, and their seafood dishes are to die for.

A lovely ambience and great menu options. Food is well prepared and bathrooms are in excellent condition. Due to the double volume ceiling, noise from other tables does echo alot and can be disturbing. A restaurant I will recommend any time.
