Undercooked pizza that was harder to get off the sullen waiters/waitresses, who repeatedly ignored me, than a smile. The salad was warm and limited choice and the hot buffet was cold with even smaller choice. I even got shouted at for taking cake and not...More

Visit early in the evening, to receive a better treatment. Pizzas come all the time, you just have to select ones you prefer.

Great range of food and good vegetarian options. More upmarket decor than Kilograma, but it was very busy and felt quite rushed. Paid about R240 for 3 meals incl a couple of beers and waters.
