Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is one of my all time favourite places to get food in town...but my experience lately when it comes to the staff and customer service leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It started with the Manager who just don't have a way of...dealing with clients - this might be the reason his staff are so miserable.More

This place was local to our Airbnb & we used them most days. Lots of fresh options, including bakery, hot breakfast buffet & extensive salad bar. You can also eat in if you want.

If I could give a null rating I would. What a terrible experience. This Food Lovers' Eatery is conveniently located from my office building, so I frequently buy food there. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Today I bought their fruit cup and a...weighed hot meal and left. When I was about to eat the fruit, I noticed that the grape had mold which was unfortunate. Went back to report the issue and the way the manager handled the situation was very disrespectful. "Do you want a refund or another one?" The tone was giving "I don't care" and so demeaning. What if I ate the fruit? He literally walked away when I asked that and ordered the cashier to give me a R40 voucher and for her to get my email only because my friend politely called him out and told her of how much of an inconvenience the entire situation was. You can't offer me another one. At the very least apologise and ensure that your quality is aligned with your prices.More

Made a brief stop there for light refreshments including freshly squeezed carrot juice and a snack. There was so much food stuff to choose from within the complex and the area was busy with the lunchtime flow of people. It was good that there is...a space set aside with benches to sit and eat and so one did not have to have a take away. The till operators were fast and efficient and the long queue moved very swiftly. For a quick and fresh light snack- it's well worth a visit.More

I absolutely love this specific FLM. It has an awesome selection of breakfast foods from pumpkin fritters to egg & bacon cups to creamy mushrooms and mini omelettes. There's atleast 20 different brekkie options to choose from. Salad selection is always good, as is their...lunch options. So many different things to go for, you will never be disappointed. Their Pork Belly is really good, as well as their sushi and bakery options. A must for anyone debating fast food vs. ready-made wholesome food!More
