Throbbing Strawberry

“Very average food.”

I had heard a lot of good reports about the restaurant, but was really disappointed.

It is situated in Douglasdale, approximately 25kms / 16m from Sandton in Johannesburg.

The duck was watery, almost as if it had recently been defrosted, tasteless, and hurriedly ‘roasted’. We did send it back.

My choice, the Asian prawn curry was, at best average.

My wife ordered the sushi which was, ok, but pricey.

The only really good dish were the oysters.

That being said, the service was very good and the chef did come and discuss the problems which was appreciated.

The restaurant was crowded, so perhaps we just chose a bad day.
