I celebrated my birthday at Turn & Tender recently. We were a group of about 12 - service was outstanding & food was really good, although quite pricey. I ordered the grilled salmon, with avocado and it was over R200 for a 200g portion.

Want the best steak in ZA. Go to any T+T. We have visited many and the quality and value for money is unparalleled in South Africa. Keep up the standard T+T!

The first thing I mentioned to one of the very attentive managers was that the service was surprising! Yes, it was surprisingly excellent! I travel the world and visit restaurants at both ends of the scale but this type of consistent service, it only by our allocated waiter, but by all staff in the restaurant that were all as attentive...

I love eating out at Turn and Tender Bassonia. While it's predominantly a steak house with phenomenal ribs, steak, chops etc it also serves more complex dishes like ostrich and marrow bone. The vibe is friendly and non pretentious yet still upmarket with a fantastic wine list. The staff are friendly and understand the menu and the manager, Nick, always... More
