Real-time

Opened in late 2015 at Nelson Mandela Square in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg The Big Mouth is a dining experience that you could easily find in a major city like New York, LA or London yet is still uniquely South African. Our menu varies from the freshest grilled seafood to gourmet burgers to a selection of world class sushi. The heart of the kitchen is our unique, world renowned Josper grill. This charcoal oven gives our hot dishes an authentic, robust chargrilled or “braai’d” flavour. Like our menu the store, which was designed by Studio Parkington in conjunction with Thought Fox Creative, is a harmonious mix of elements - black steel shopfronts, a majestic white marble clad sushi bar, bold blue seating and brass accents throughout - all leading out onto the famous square.

    Hi We specifically booked Big Mouth for a very special occasion (our anniversary) and were very excited for our night based on various recommendations. We also made the effort to book outside seating given the current Covid situation. Unfortunately on arrival, we found the restaurant had closed its outside section and were told by management that they had decided to close the doors as they felt it was cold. Many restaurants are making provisions (heaters, spaced seating, ventilation etc.) for Covid but sadly Big Mouth made zero plans to accomodate us or take the situation somewhat seriously. So i cannot comment on the food or the value but can confirm a very poor experience overall

    When making my reservation I was asked if we are celebrating anything. I indicated that it was our anniversary we are celebrating. Thereafter there was never a mention again about what we were celebrating. So, I am not sure what the point was of asking what the occasion was. The service we received was excellent. We had the salt and pepper calamari as a starter which was tough. The dim sum (prawn) was absolutely outstanding.
