Critic's review

Kholeka Kumalo

Food
Either you’re going to BBQ Workshop because you’re a dedicated carnivore or because you’re a lover of Greek food. A quick word of advice: stick to the Greek-inspired dishes. Although it won’t be the best Greek food you’ve had in your life, it works for a quick, basic Mediterranean bite to eat.

Starters include falafel served with tahini and pita bread, phyllo pastry parcels stuffed with spinach and cream cheese, and Greek meatballs in a tomato-based sauce. The portions are large, which almost justifies the prices, so you could skip the starters altogether and go straight for mains.

The open-plated meals are BBQ Workshop’s saving grace and great for sharing. Choose between shaved chicken, beef and lamb or pork, or chicken or beef souvlaki skewers served with masala-seasoned chips, tomatoes, red onions, pita bread and your choice of traditional Greek dip. A really handy aspect of the menu is being able to choose your number of skewers (one, two or three), and meat type. For a slightly more balanced meal, order the village Greek salad with tomato, Kalamata olives, cucumber and loads of Danish feta.

Don’t forget to leave some room for gelato and freshly baked mini waffles.

Drinks
The usual offering of soft drinks and cordials, which you might want to give a miss for a chilli chocolate, bubblegum candy floss or nutty Oreo milkshake.

Service
Slow and unenthusiastic, but the food gets to you eventually.

Ambience
It feels a bit like a modern-day version of a roadhouse.

And…
The people-watching is priceless, so grab a seat in the covered outside area and watch the ins and outs of Rivionia Village.
