Restaurant recommendations in Johannesburg?

eatamsterdam Nov 30, 2011 02:06 AM

I've had a good look around the Africa boards and there seems to be very little on Johannesburg restaurants. I'm already in town and have been to a number of good French/Italian/steak restaurants but am having trouble finding good Asian (specifically Thai and Vietnamese) here.

Can anyone help? Recommendations for any other good places to eat in Joburg are also welcome.

    For Thai/Vietnamese try Cranks in Rosebank (a funky place) and also for Thai try Wangthai on Mandela Square in Sandton. I haven't been to either in a while but have not heard anything to suggest that they aren't still good. Hope you can try them.

          We ended up in Melville and I liked it a lot - ate at Melon, Lucky Bean, Xia Xia, Cafe de la Creme - I'd go back to any of them.
