The Green Peppercorn is the first restaurant of five from Woolworths in the center. The staff staff are very keen and friendly and do their utmost to entice you to "their restaurant"! Highlighting all the dishes available. Can't fault the service!! Wine is displayed according to color and type and a selection is made from the display. We had seared... More

There is something wrong at Green Peppercorn. It used to be the kind of restaurant we would take overseas visitors to impress them. But after a recent visit we made a promise never to spend another cent there. Why? The menu is greatly reduced from what it used to be. In addition, the management appears to have opted for a...

Went for final supper of our SA trip with family and what a great place to have a farewell dinner. Food was very very good with dumplings to start for all and then Spicy chicken to finish and what huge portions. Great waiters and such amazing friendliness in a super centre close to Sandton.

popped in to the Green Peppercorn for a late lunch . I've heard quite a few reviews about this restaurant but never had the chance to try it. I opted for the Sea Bass. Which pretty much was a taste overload in my mouth, the pepper essence foam was the cherry on the top. Overall service was good and could... More

Best dessert options - try the Bon Bon (you won't be disappointed). Amazing food. Wish it was better situated (in Morningside Mall).

We went to Green Peppercorn last night for dinner for a family celebration. We frequent Green Peppercorn often as in the past we had excellent service, unfortunately last night was a disaster. The service was terrible. The wait between meals was incredibly long with no explanation. When we asked to see the manager, we were given lots of excuses. Finally... More

The food at Green Peppercorn is superb. There are such a variety of choices. Fresh, delicious - in fact, this restaurant gives Signature a run for its money. The service here is excellent and it's managed by someone who is truly a passionate restaurateur. My fabio unite is a table by the big open doors, looking at the Sandton wannabes... More
