Four Generations thoroughly enjoyed our meals and Andrew’s Happy Birthday. The Food and Staff have been amazing every time I’ve eaten here. Yep, don’t go away BG. We love U.

Staff went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and looked after. They sang happy birthday to my husband which was really lovely and when we left the owner gave him some Belgian chocolate as an extra lil gift, which we did not expect! Wonderfully thoughtful little touches like that are invaluable. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! And the food was perfect of course, as always!

This is our go-to spot for family birthdays - if you let them know there is a birthday at the table they come out singing Happy Birthday with hats on and give the birthday boy/girl a free ice-cream sundae. They absolutely love it! There is also a play area out the back for the kids, with toys for toddlers right up to video games for older kids so it really caters for everyone. And the food is delicious! Good South African fare - the steaks are outstanding. Portion sizes are huge though, so sharing is a good option with some of them. It has a nice, cosy feel to it and is a relaxed and easy place to chat and eat. Always recommend this restaurant to everyone looking for a great family spot, it never disappoints.

The best chicken I have tasted.
The chickens are juicy tender with tangy and spicy taste, amazing and the staff are so friendly and happy. All in all it was a wonderful dinner for our guests and my partner. Thank you Bushman Grill will be back.
