The service was slow, the food took ages to be served and the eggs which were ordered "over easy" were still undercooked. I mentioned this to the waitress who ignored my comment. One of the worst Wimpy's I have been to and certainly wont be back

I was taught, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I don't have anything to say bad about Wimpy, they just cater to the locals. This is not a place for a foreigner with a trained palate. But if you are a foreigner, just keep in mind that saying, When in Rome...

The staff was very friendly and the service good. Unfortunately the air conditioning did not work on the day we visited and the temperature was well above 30 degrees Celsius with high humidity. The food was of a good quality and well prepared.

For a quick stop for coffee and something to eat, this is not too bad. Wimpy food is as the franchise produces and this outlet produces it quite well. However, if one sits inside, the place feels a little cramped and if one sits outside, there is a heck of a lot of noise from the R40 nearby, which is... More

Usually grabbing a quick toasted sandwich while traveling at a Wimpy you know what to expect. When ordering a toasted bacon and cheese and getting a squashed sandwich with "1" slice of cheese according to the manager that melts into the sandwich was horrible. Rude argumentative manager was the rotten cherry on top of a bad meal. Wish I could... More

For a quick breakfast of lunch its ideally situated, not in the main hussle of the mall and a bit more peaceful. Service was great, have no complaints even the food was of a good standard and nice and hot when served. Staff was friendly an helpful and always close by if you needed anything.

The Wimpy is a good place for a quick meal. We went there as a couple and the service was not very good, we waited for the food a while and it wasn't busy. After we waited for the bill for more than 5min we went to pay at the counter, no change we had to wait also for change

I had forgotten how good Wimpy is as it has all but been taken over in Europe by other hamburger chains. Lunch here was surprisingly good - topped off by a nice cup of coffee. Good place to grab a quick lunch, late breakfast or whatever meal when hunger strikes.
