    A one stop butcher shop that, according to some Yowziters, have the best chops, ribs, biltong and cold meats in town. Service is always friendly and cuts are done exactly the way you want it. A great range of sauces, spices and roti’s makes this a Joburg favourite for residents of all creeds and colour.

    Hamza is one of the best butcheries in Johannesburg. It's a very small butchery but I'm amazed at the number of people that shop here. Hamid has impeccable manners and is always helpful. The one trait of this butchery is there focus on personalized service.

    This is a nice one-stop butcher shop. They are often busy on a Saturday morning, but never too busy to greet, ask how you're doing, and sometimes offer a free sample (e.g. biltong). Try the ostrich biltong; it's not red meat, so in a different health-band. It's delicious too.

    The meat is great and they also sell a range of sauces, spices and home made rotis. Hamid is so friendly and is always happy to see you and chat.

    I thought it is important to tell this story. On Friday just after the doors were closed my wife stopped to buy our range of goods. Despite it being a cold Friday and it beign home time, Hamid opened the doors, served my wife and then cleaned the machines again. While, I feel bad about putting Hamid through that experience, it reminded me of the days when customers were the kings and great service was the order of the day.

    You've earned the 5 star rating from me and my wife. Many thanks Hamid.

    I was in the mood for spare-ribs, and we visited this store on Saturday (while in the area). Anyway, now that it's been cooked and eaten, I can say it was fresh, tender, and delicious.

    Why don't you try their cold meat selection for a lunch sandwich. You'll not be disappointed. Staff at store are always friendly.

    Had a mutton curry craving, so me and the wife visited this store for some meat and chicken. Post-cooking, I can say it's good quality.

    Their salami is also good. Staff friendly, and knowleadgeable of the various cuts of meat, and which ones appropriate for curry/braai.
