I liked the menu and the availability of marrow bones, which is very rare nowadays. They were extremely tasty, well seasoned and well presented with toasts. Other dishes were also well prepared. The service was excellent and the environment pleasant.

After visiting T&T in Nelspruit last Saturday we were expecting similar experiences to other T&T’s we have frequented in JHB. Except this must have been close to the worst cooked meal we have been presented in a long time. We were a party of 5...family members who ordered various steak and other options. Of the meals presented two of the steaks were both well cooked after requesting medium rare. Neither of these steaks appeared to be close to the designated weight stipulated on the menu. A 3rd member of the family ordered a “medium-rare wagu” burger and received a small (non-wagu) patty cooked well done. After raising this with management the 3 meals were replaced except when they returned the wagu burger was cold (not even slightly warm) and the two replaced steaks were very undercooked and cold in the middle. Clearly the chef was not on “top of their game” nor were management in dealing with the issue. We still paid for this terrible meal and left very disappointed with what ought to be a “go to steakhouse”. Avoid.More

Definitely the best steak ever! From start to finish it was an experience rather than just a meal! The way that the presentation of the different cuts of meat are presented to you, the advice from the presenter and the end product! Absolutely devine!

The previous visits were well worth commenting on, as they were most pleasant. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. On our visit, the tables are not cleaned properly, flies disturbed our meal, the food was NOT great - chips fried in old oil, and...it was not exactly a "quiet" meal. Will definitely give it a miss in futureMore

I have never in my life ate such an amazing steak...good atmosphere, great host..the cocktails were amazing... Our waitress didn't really attend us as much as we would have liked but the host, the food, the layout just everything was so beyond superb that one...can overlook. Fantastic portions for the price. Definitely worth the 5 star rating.More

So pleased that we picked this place for our big night out. One of only two places where my husband could not finish all his meal. Enjoyed two courses each and a couple of drinks. A very satisfying expereiece and would certainly recommend to others

We have eaten at this resturant twice in two weeks. We were from 4 to 14 and for the most part is was a satisfying experience. The steaks (particularly the ribeye)and ribs were cooked as ordered(more on that later) and good quality. Kingklip is one...of my favorites but I didn’t care for either of the offered preparations so can’t recommend it. The wait staff was friendly and cordial as was the management. I think the actual delivery of the food by the servers needs to be worked on, the individual plates for each of us came out in parts, with way to much time between the first item arriving and the last. Dressings for the baked potatoes should arrive with the potatoes, not as an afterthought when they are done bringing the mains. The same goes for the salad and salad dressings. One other point, they were promoting the ribeye prepared by what they called “American Style”, sliced up after cooking and doused with an herb melted butter! I am a 70 year old American, retired cattle rancher and resturant owner. They need to own up that this is “South African Style”! American “style” is a prime ribeye cut, well aged, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, then cooked perfectly to no more than medium rare. To their credit, they prepared the ribeyes as I ordered them! Real “American Style”.More

Best place to have a juicy tender steak. Good service and value too. Great specials places it in reach of below Spur steakhouse pricing. It also caters for next level cuisine but this comes at a correspo ding price. Bar one milkshakes are wickedly good!
