Review: Solo Sandton

A new, black-owned restaurant just hit the streets of Sandton, proving to infiltrate the luxury and premium dining experience. I had the pleasure of going to the restaurant this past Friday to check it out.



As you enter, you are greeted by a host or hostess who sanitizes you upon arrival. You are the escorted to a table of your choice, and my goodness, the place is absolutely stunning. It is spacious, the tables are well spaced out so you do not hear other people’s conversations. Due to Covid-19 there is no physical menu so you can a QR Code which takes you to the menu. 



Our bill went north of R1k but this was due to the bottle of bubbly, sushi and ostrich fillet that I had. Mine was cooked perfectly as I asked (medium) but my friends sirloin was well done, which knocks off a point as she asked for it to be medium.

The service was decent, the staff looked really neat and they were absolutely professional, with them knowing which sections they occupy and work at. They wear blue jeans and restaurant shirts so there is unison and uniformity amongst them, which is really lovely to see. They also attend to you promptly and the chef brings out the food to you, adding to the dining experience.

The décor is minimal yet stunning, there is a wine cellar arch that is so beautiful, and you cannot help but take a picture there. Pricing is fairly okay, its Sandton so I think a good budget for two would be about R500-R800, dependent on what you are having. The sushi is a total 10/10 as it is fresh and so delicious.

All the best to the owners of this beautiful establishment, may they thrive and we continue to support black excellence.
