Last week Saturday we decided to have a meal at Jimmy Killer Prawns in Ballito, with family members who were due to leave the next day.
When we entered the restaurant, it was virtually empty, something unheard in season in Ballito. This should have been our clue to get out of there, fast…
We waited a while for a waiter to take our drinks order, until I had to get up and go and call the manger for help. We then decided on a ‘shared meal’ they offer, with all sorts of starters & prawns.
Well, almost all of the starters were terrible. The holumi we ordered was covered in some salty batter, the chicken livers were beyond hot, none of us could eat them. The chips had been cooked in the oil from yesterday, and were burnt. Even the sauce on the prawns were drenched in garlic, which made them taste awful.
At the end of the evening when we approached the manager, who ended up serving us the whole evening, and told her we were unhappy with the meal, she just shrugged her shoulders and didn’t even apologise.
It is a pity that this restaurant is going to the dogs in Ballito, and I can’t see many of us locals supporting it for very much longer.
