This is a pretty good self service restaurant. Weirdly, you have to go and call a manager every time you want a waiter to come to you. For what you get, this place is ridiculously overpriced but that's Sandton I suppose. Rather go to Doppio.

Welcoming atmosphere, kind service, good food, large portions, great rooibos tea, delicious chia latte and a wonderful general manager. We are from California and had no way to call our hotel to pick us up but the general manger helped us out without hesitation. I'd suggest going here for a great meal and possibly a slice of cake. We didn't... More

My friend and I dined here on our first night arriving in Johannesburg for her birthday and it was a fantastic night. Food was delicious with very generous portions. So much that we couldn't even finish ours so it was packed up for us to take away and enjoy later. We were treated to very tasty cupcakes also! Loved the... More

Great Salads. Fresh and delicious but MASSIVE! So big, we couldn't finish them!! We had the Grain Salad with butternut, beetroot and quinoa (only issue with this salad was the long strips of carrot..... not a very glamorous look with long strands hanging out of my mouth) but was very tasty. ......and the Cos Salad with chicken strips. Yum! Great... More

Had a fabulous salad here (ancient grain) 2 wks ago. Brought a bunch of friends tonight, but the salad was NOT the same and the other meals were pathetic. And... the manager didn't bother to check on us even after the (very sweet) server went to inform him. Poor show, Walnut Grove. These people won't be back!

Great for coffees and treat - an impeccable selection of treats to choose from. This restaurant offers more that just a coffee fix in all shapes and forms and is over and over worth your time.
