Set-menu, meze-feast food experiences at our migrant teahouse available on selected Saturdays. BOOKING WITH PREPAYMENT ESSENTIAL



Find Scatterlings Arcade on the ground floor of the Thunder Walker, a historic bank building and now a major visitor destination, originally built in 1904 as a bank building for the United Building Society. Scatterlings is a beautiful migrant teahouse, operated by JoburgPlaces together with the Zwipi Underground and Town Square Banqueting Hall at the Thunder Walker. It is situated in a four-storey volumed arcade with hanging plants and charcoal art depicting some of the famous buildings of Jozi.

Eating at Scatterlings is so much more than just enjoying a meal. It is a tasting sensation, showcasing some of the most famous migrant foods you will find all over the city. Our four-course menu provides an opportunity to travel though the city and experience its migrant culture. Food is served meze-style on platters in the centre of the table, ideal for group lunches or dinners, making for a most casual but delectable meal.

Start off with a masala tea and wine spritzer, complemented by a Greek platter.  This is followed by a vegetarian and fish course that includes Egyptian Mahshi, Mozambican Matapa and Nigerian Tilapia. The third course entails tender Ethiopian Tibs (beef), Chinese Chicken Chow Mein  and Chicken Fourways – a local delicacy showcasing four different styles of enjoying chicken in Jozi. Dessert comprises a nut-free baklava and rose-infused chocolate truffles. It is an abundant tasting experience to remember and cherish.

With a wide range of teas, Ethiopian coffee, tea-cocktails and a full bar,  Scatterlings Restaurant at the Thunder Walker is where to go for outstanding, casual dining.
