Randfontein Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Randfontein

July 25, 2017 Tonie Szymanski

Randfontein is a gold mining city in the West Rand, Gauteng, South Africa, 40 km (25 mi) west of Johannesburg. With the Witwatersrand gold rush in full swing, mining financier JB Robinson bought the farm Randfontein and, in 1889, floated the Randfontein Estates Gold Mining Company. The town was established in 1890 to serve the new mine and was administered by Krugersdorp until it became a municipality in 1929. Apart from having the largest stamp mill in the world (used in early paper making for preparing the pulp), Randfontein, like many of the other outlying areas of Johannesburg, is essentially a rural collection of farms and small holdings in a particularly beautiful part of Gauteng.

Westwood Arms

Reviewed By cpes100 - South Africa

Passing through Krugersdorp and Lunchtime - The Westwood is a typical small shopping mall Bar and restaurant that is not pretending to be anything other than a neighborhood venue. I was greeted and shown a table table quickly. Menu arrive, ordered a beer which arrived just as quickly - ice cold.
Medium Rare Sirloin, Egg and chips ordered and it was very good. Recommend for good value straightforward fare.

Ocean Basket

Reviewed By peggydup - Krugersdorp, South Africa

I was disappointed with the fact that the bread that was served with the food was served with margarine, and the fish was supposed to be kingklip and I am sure it was hake. The cherry on top the coffee was horrendous, I am sure it was instant with low fat milk. Small things count to enjoy an evening out. We won't go back there.

Reviewed By DazzaB777 - Johannesburg, South Africa

After hearing from a friend how great the food here was, I decided to give it a try. I arrived to a relatively quiet reception. The lady behind the till was deeply engrossed with the Delivery man and could not give me the time of day for a good few minutes. After a few coughs and sighs, I got a half hearted greeting and then conversation continued. I ordered chicken, chicken livers and a crispy macon salad. It was disheartening to watch half the staff working and the other half trying to get the working individuals to work harder. After a good twenty minutes I was finally presented my meal. Got home to find that the crispy macon salad is a french salad with two pieces of macon put on the top of it. The chicken livers are buried in a sauce that has separated and even a good mix with the spoon does not get the sauce to mix with the oil. The taste of the livers were far better than the presentation. The chicken itself was well prepared and tasty and if I had only got the chicken and I had had the order delivered to me the score might be 5/5. My next visit will only be if I am ever in the area, craving chicken and the store is completely empty.
