Simply Asia

Thai cuisine is one of the most fascinating and flavourful. Pairing spicy with sweet, salty and sticky, this is our kind of food. Simply Asia offers Thai food lovers an array of colourful dishes to choose from. And, whether you are in a hurry or have time to spare, this restaurant is well-suited to catering to your every need. We recommend the chicken and cashew nut noodle bowl  – it’s simply delicious!

Col’cacchio

If wood-fired pizza is your thing, check out Eastgate’s Col’cacchio. This up-market Italian restaurant is situated below the food court, so it’s a lot quieter than upstairs eateries. The menu features Banting, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, so anyone can enjoy their scrumptious meals. To make sure you get a taste of everything on the menu, get a couple of friends to tag along for a share-and-tear style dinner.

Plaka

From humble beginnings way back in 1993, Plaka has established itself as a landmark venue in Joburg, especially at Eastgate Shopping Mall. They produce the finest Greek dishes, without compromising on taste or value. Plaka’s decor also adds to the Greek island atmosphere. Whites, blues and clear glass windows give the restaurant a breezy, yet welcoming feel.

Tjips

From fine dining to fast food, the Eastgate food court has it all. The latest fast food franchise to open in the food court is Tjips. This quirky food stand pairs good old pomme frites (AKA chips) with all kinds of toppings. From salsa, guac and sour cream, to Parmesan and truffle mayo, this gourmet chip stand is much more than a chip and dip. If this wasn’t enough to blow your mind, try the Shenanigans – sugar-coated chips, served with a scoop of Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream!

Harper’s Restaurant & Coffee Shop

Last, but certainly not least on this list is Harper’s. While you may have to travel to the farthest corner of the mall to find this coffee bar, it’s worth the journey. Harper’s is the ideal spot at Eastgate to tuck into scones and tea, carrot cake or even a gourmet burger. Their lattes are famed for being frothy and warming, too. Plus, the decor is just so lovely that you will forget you are even dining inside a mall.
