I investigated places to stop for breakfast in East London since I was travelling from Mthatha and had a flight to catch (the thought of airport lounge options did not appeal). Sanook was reviewed as the number #1 eatery in East London and was therefore...More

Already a highly rated restaurant, probably because there isn't much else in East London. I like the concept but not the execution. The food was good but felt a bit salty and heavy. The seating isn't incredibly comfortable. Staff was friendly but not super friendly....More

Real good food, especially the beef and sauce alongside the salad was original. Service was friendly but most importantly the atmosphere was nice and the place really cozy. Nice terrasse for outdoor lunch or dinner.

Sanook offers high quality food in a nice venue. I can truly recommend any of the menu items, but the burgers are a cut above any other burgers I have had in a long time. Slightly expensive, but worth it.
