This is lovely setting, especially outside with an exquisite koi pond. Menu is reasonable. There is also the option to dine in the train section of the restaurant

Restaurant seems to be popular and we had to wait a while for a table. However once we were seated, the service was quick and efficient. Had light snacks which were good but not the house specials.

The Smokey Train Diner is a really nice restaurant. A couple of table are inside a train cabin which gives you the impression you're dining in a train restaurand. The food was also lovely and the waitress is really nice

We visited Sabie at lunchtime on a Sunday looking for a bite to eat and spied this diner which looked great - lots of local dishes - just what we were after. We had parked quite a distance away so while hubby had a quick look in, I retrieved the car. On my return to join him, I was delighted... More

We had a great dinner of steak and vegetables with a fabulous tangy sauce. The service was nice and importantly the price was reasonable. The setting at back was nice with the trees and the waterfall, certainly different.
