Situated within the Pick n’ Pay on Nicol Drive in Bryanston, Thyme on Nicol is the perfect place to recover with a slice of cake and some coffee after a long day of retail therapy.
I was there yesterday for sushi and experienced terrible service. Their low sodium soy sauce bottles were refilled with normal soy sauce. For a hypertensive person like myself, its dangerous to be refilling bottles with incorrect product. The sodium content is way too high. I was highly annoyed with my experience and won't be frequenting that spot. Such a disappointing experience.. yet that restaurant has potential to be amazing. Those staff have been there too long. They are lazy with terrible attitudes. Poor management clearly.
Great place, wonderful service and lovely food!!
Thyme is a fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere is calming and relaxing. The food portions are very generous as well as the food being delicious. The service is an 8/10 occasionally it slacks a bit but most of the time it's been great and the staff are friendly. The value for money is good. Overall Thyme is a great café and I would recommend it to everyone looking for a casual relaxing meal.
When the manager thinks it's more important to be clearing tables than serving customers that have been waiting for over 15min then you cannot call yourself a restaurant! Never encountered such terrible service - nothing changed even as we flagged this to him on our way out. I've been a regular here but will never go back.
Quality of food? - Outstanding (I've eaten most things on the menu)
Size of helpings? extremely generous (you'll need a doggie bag)
Service? Excellent (in spite of being full to the brim!
Over the years, the standard has not dropped, as can be attested by the queue at lunchtime. If any criticism, I would suggest that they cater for single tables (people who bring their laptops and spend time) and doubles (most tables that didn't have a single customer, had two). A dozen or so Two-seater cubicles (shoulder high) would pack in many more customers in the same floor area. Pity to see a table for four occupied by a single customer (I saw 6 today; and almost all the others had two.) I love the place!
