Our Heritage

Through great tasting food and our South African heritage, Mike’s Kitchen has been creating memorable family experiences since the very beginning.

The first Mike’s Kitchen, brainchild of our founder Mike lllion, was opened in Greenside, Johannesburg on the 17th September 1972. Since then, Mike’s Kitchen has become a trusted “go-to” restaurant for families all over the country and a South African household name.

The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a star.
