Raising The Steaks at The Grill Jichana

The Grill Jichana, located at Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani, boasts flame-grilled premium cuts from the best local producers seasoned, infused and flavoured with tastes of the African East Coast spice route.

Dishes are created with flair, flavoured with fragrant cassia, cardamom, turmeric and other heady spices and prepared using the freshest produce. These robustly flavoursome spices complement the grilling of meat, fish and chicken creating the essence of ‘eating good’ or jichana in Swahili slang.

The Menu


Steaks – specially selected Karan Beef from Heidelberg. Always premium cuts that are then matured in our butchers special aging process. Seasoned with aromatic house spice, infused with lemon black pepper, rock sea salt and crushed mustard seed, flame grilled then basted with herbed honey BBQ. Premium meat given the attention it deserves. Cuts include Rump, Fillet, T-Bone.

Lamb is from a free-range flock in the Karoo. Thickly cut rump with a French trim hand cut and dressed by our butcher. Choose from a Duo of Chops or a Lamb Skewer.
