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.

    The Big Mouth is one of my favourite restaurants in Johannesburg/Sandton. The service is great and the food did not take long to appear. And the food, oh the food! Two of us shared the spinach and cream cheese dim sum and deluxe roses as starters, and then the salmon and beef sticks (kebabs) accompanied by a lettuce and parmesan salad. The restaurant is huge, and in spite of being so busy (there were queues of people waiting to get in), we were never rushed and the staff who served us were always polite and efficient. The prices are a little high, but can be overlooked because of the rest of the experience. It is strongly recommended that you book.
