Review of Antiek Sjiek

Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 June 2016

My husband and I had the utmost pleasure of having lunch at Antiek Sjiek in Hendrina on Friday, 24 June 2016. The entrance to the restaurant is just off the main road. The whole area boasts nostalgic and very interesting décor throughout that adds to the charming and inviting ambience. We chose a table on the veranda and were transformed into a familiar bygone era.

The menu boasts breakfasts, homemade pies, salads, pancakes (sweet and savoury) and beef curry to name a few. The menu is very reasonably priced in comparison to the high quality of our meals.

My husband had the beef curry which was served in a black three legged pot. This was accompanied by a fresh and very tasty side salad and sliced banana with a heavenly sauce (on the side). He thoroughly enjoyed each and every bite. I had a taste of his curry and it was melt in the mouth tender and perfectly spiced.

I had the “Jafle” (Jaffel) which is a true South African dish. It consisted of two slices of bread filled with a heavenly mixture of mince, tomato and cheese which is then toasted in a “jafle” pan. I thoroughly enjoyed every scrumptious bite.

The service from our waitress was very friendly, hands on and unobstrusive.

The antique store is a whole delightful experience in itself and boasts a wide variety on display. The house adjacent to the tea garden is filled with treasures from a bygone era displayed in each room. Beautiful cutlery and crockery is displayed in the dining room and some of the pieces are for sale.

The restrooms are sparkling clean and neat. The décor in the restroom of the main house is very unique and interesting and well worth a look (coins laden into the floor).

We utterly enjoyed our mouthwatering lunch in a very relaxing ambience and will most definitely go back on our next trip through Hendrina to sample on the menu and enjoy the magical ambience.

Did the buffey today for R100. Excellent value for money. It is the best Sunday meal I ate in a long time for that money. The milkshake was excellent to. Beautiful antiek shop with a lot of intressting things to see. Also a few old ossewaens... Decor is done beautiful. Will highly recommend it for a relaxed meal, plays to bring the children to play and experience all this old antiek furniture. Many of the furniture is for sale too..

This was such a surprise find in Hendrina. We stayed in Carolina and the hostess recommended the trip to Hendrina to eat at Antiek Sjiek.

It is one of those interesting and quirky places with humorous menus, good food portions and a very unique character.

You can choose between a "mom" and "dad" portion and the food was tasty and dished up in old fashioned plates.

This is also a place where you find antiques and beautifully restored pieces.

A unique place to visit if you're in the area

on our way to Richard's bay we got hungry and we saw this little shop with an indication of a teagarden. What a surprise we got when we walked through the shop and ended in this amazing outside place. tea garden and a lovely antique restaurant with fantastic food.

Antiek Sjiek in Hendrina, Mpumalanga, South Africa, is the most amazing place. An antique shop, gift shop, kids play area, restaurant and bar. The yard is filled with items, big & small, from times past. the "old" house is filled with antique accessories and i assure you will pick up a thing or two from the gift shop. Thee food is great and the kids had a great time playing and exploring. Weekend buffet is a must book event as it is fully booked. Well worth a detour if you are in Mpumalanga.
