Sandiso Ngubane

The sheer variety of dishes at The Big Mouth can be quite overwhelming. Fortunately, there’s one thing this slick Jozi establishment seems to be most popular for: their sushi. You won’t be disappointed. Their six-piece tuna maki with a delicious sriracha mayo is an excellent, delectable start, and the salmon skin futomaki – served crispy with avo, cucumber, some caviar with sriracha and teriyaki – is just as delicious.

Over and above the sushi, there is of course the grill menu, offering excellent chargrilled calamari, kingklip, lobster, steaks and ribs, as well as gourmet burgers. Bowls including sesame chicken with roasted tomatoes, baby spinach, lettuce, carrots, cabbage, feta, sweetcorn and fresh raddish are as delicious as they sound. Do try the haloumi salad bowl with roasted butternut, chickpeas, a hint of mint, peas, roasted carrot and raddish (among other ingredients offering flavours that complement the haloumi quite beautifully).

To satisfy your sweet tooth, The Big Mouth offers deep-fried Oreos; a banana cream jar with vanilla, caramel and Tennis biscuits; and a variety of ice cream flavours, including rosemary pomegranate Turkish delight, double milk chocolate and Vietnamese coffee. They also offer crème brûlée, carrot, and peanut-butter cheesecakes.

The Big Mouth offers classic cocktails, including the cosmopolitan, whiskey sours and the like, in addition to others, including a delightful lemongrass mojito. The menu is not big on cocktail varieties otherwise, but the bar is fully stocked, offering all kinds of beers and spirits, and an impressive wine list.

While the service at The Big Mouth is usually slick and friendly – and all staff seems very knowledgeable about the menu – it can take a dip when things get busy, which is quite often.

Located in the Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton, the restaurant is great for big outings with friends. Tables are placed quite closely together, adding to the atmosphere.

Reservations are not necessary, but are advised for parties of six or more people. The restaurant is quite popular so be ready to wait for a table on weekends, especially.

  • Can be difficult to get in and they sometimes won't take a booking, but we've never failed to get a table. Food is wholesome and generous. Service professional and quick. Prices very average. A good place for a quick meal before a show.

  • KevFabFood has finally made it to The Big Mouth... this fab place sure knows how to make amazing food with friendly and impeccable service. I can highly recommend the Salmon and Edamame beans and the Oreo and Nutella mousse - my hubby had the Panko Chicken with mash and the Ice-Cream sandwich...looked good and he enjoyed it! My only regret is waiting so long to try this fab place 😇 an overall 4.5 🌟
