This family restaurant boasts with three branches - Edenvale, Benoni and Alberton. So, you can take the whole family and go have a good time somewhere in the East (or the South depending on how you view Alberton). This is also such a cosy spot for a romantic dinner, too.

Their most dominant is Kingklip, so if you want to try something with a twist, this is it.

Buitengeluk

As far as wedding venues go, you wouldn't randomly think that you would randomly think of vising one to have a good seafood dish, but Buitengeluk will change your mind.

This amazing venue with the most beautiful garden has become slip off the tongue for their famous basil pesto crusted Kingklip. This beautiful fish is served on a bed of vegetables and noodles hugged in sour cream sauce.

It is most certainly a dish worth travelling for.

Are you looking for Asian Restaurants In Joburg? From Chinese to Japanese and everything in between, come with us on a journey through the Orient without stepping foot outside of the City Of Gold.

Fong Mei Restaurant

Do yourself a favour and visit Cyrildene. It's one of those Joburg cultural experiences that you simply need to tick off your bucket list sooner than later. Take your time and go through the entire area, and when you become hungry, head to Fong Mei restaurant, order the crispy beef and a Tsingtao, sit back and enjoy. This is real Chinese food made by a kitchen so under rated that the entire Joburg Culinary scene is oblivious to it. The prices are pretty, the service friendly, and the food authentic. There's no fog around the bay here, you get the real deal and that's the best way to start this list. The rest is all just cultural appropriation... just kidding... kind of. Besides, you can't write a 'Asian Restaurants In Joburg' article and not mention at least one hangout from the legendary Cyrildene.

No neighbourhood in Joburg is complete without a fancy sitdown eatery fashioned after something out of Japan. So Yum is your one-stop crispy-beef-California-roll-sweet-corn-soup hook-up in Hydepark Corner. Their service is fast, their prices average and their meals tasty. All in all, they are more than just another Japanese takeout, which isn't a bad thing – especially when you're craving sweet and sour pork on a Friday night. So Yum has been voted as one of the best Asian restaurants in Joburg. Why not swing by, give it a go and let us know what you think?

Just when you thought Uber couldn't get any cooler, they prove you wrong with a new concept. In addition to their ride app, Uber now allows users to order food from their favourite restaurants. All seamlessly from their phones. If Uber can get a ride to you in five minutes or less, what else can they bring you? And there it is: the logic behind UberEATS.

UberEATS is an on-demand food delivery app, distinct from their ride-share application. They partner with only the best local restaurants to get you the food you want when you want it. At launch, UberEATS already offered some of the best food Johannesburg has to offer, such as Casalottis, Momo Baohaus, Krunch, Fishmonger and Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream. And, of course, one of our favourite — BGR in Rosebank.

The UberEATS app can be downloaded from the app store or through the Uber rides app. Meals can be requested for delivery in Johannesburg from 07:00 to 22:00, seven days a week, with a R20 delivery fee — on par with an UberX minimum ride fee. UberEATS offers those living in Jozi an alternative to getting good food in good time. This gives Joburgers great food at the touch of a button — no minimum order size. The application offers you a choice of restaurants within a 3.5 km range of your location. Uber has estimated a 30%–40% increase in business for partnering restaurants.

UberEATS launched on 29 September 2016.
