Excellent choice to add to the fun and laughter we experienced in the theatre after our dinner. The 3 course meal was excellently made and tasted wonderful. Service was done with a smile and we could eat in good time I would definitely recommend the Bistro as a good addition to the theatre experience.

Side Dish is a good choice for dinner before watching a performance, as it allows one to relax and enjoy your meal without stressing about time. The ambiance is so-so, the menu is small but offers meat, fish and vegetarian options. We had a dim-sum starter which was nicely presented and tasty. I ordered line fish, served with crisps and...

Visited the SideDish for a pre-dinner to Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat. We were one of 3 couples and were well received. Ordered a bottle of wine that was well priced and very pleasant. The starters are overpriced as are the desserts with pricing up to R90.00 each. Gold plated I assume? We both ordered the fish, yellowtail was on offer. Preparation... More

We had supper before our show. The menu was compact, but cover about every taste. The food was topnotch from the starters to the deserts. Although we paid the "cheaper" price as 2 of us chose the 3-course meal option, it still seemed expensive, as we still had surcharges to pay because of what we chose. The quality of the... More

Appropriate venue for a meal and theatre combo. Our party of 4 arrived early at 1810 (3rd table seated), but slow service, for only two courses, meant we were the second last to leave (just made curtain up at 20.00). It was busy and waitresses seemed a bit overwhelmed, although polite and trying to be helpful. Our food choices tasty,... More

So very convenient to do dinner before a show. Sadly we were disappointed by the lack of support. We were one of 4 tables. Food good, wine list limited, good service, good vibe.

Our small group went to see the musical Joseph at the theatre and popped upstairs for luncheon before the show. The restaurant was decked out very smartly with lovely glasses, cutlery and crockery. The tablecloths were snowy white, and the serviettes, stood to attention, just begging to be used! 4 of us had Peri-Peri chicken with paprika potato wedges and... More

We were met by a very friendly and attentive waitress. ambiance was great too. We both ordered the rump (menu somewhat limited). When they arrived they were like two different dishes! One rump was beautiful thick and perfectly cooked. The other was a flat piece of overcooked meat, not remotely resembling a rump! And both meals pretty bland. Sorry Side... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Firstly, please accept our unreserved apology for a disappointing experience. We are completely at a loss as to how/why the kitchen could present one perfect steak, partnered by an overcooked one. They cook thousands of steaks per year, generally with excellent results. We would hate for this to be your... More
