This is a place loved by students, working folk and families alike. It is seemingly always packed on weekends and in the evenings, which speaks volumes to its popularity. But in such a seemingly serious world, a casual, laid-back spot like Thirst is what a lot of folks crave. The outside seating is wonderful, with the inside being a bit dark, with that classic pub feel. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, making you feel right at home.
Despite the relaxing casual feel, the menu is no doubt a large driving force behind this joint’s popularity. The food is tasty and plentiful, and the prices are a steal compared to most other restaurants. The daily specials offered by Thirst makes this place a crowd favourite in Pretoria East – especially when you want to eat out on a lower budget. From half price Pizza and Pasta to amazing rib or T-bone specials, and half-price cocktails – just choose your day (or days) and enjoy. The pub-grub style basket foods are also nothing less than delicious – from wings to poppers, to deep-fried feta stuffed peppadews, and ribs. And the chicken strips are enough to feed two people.
You’ll also find tasty cocktails, craft beers, and gins on offer. Now and then they have a ‘Craft Exchange’ evening where they offer tastings of craft beers or gins, so keep an eye out.
So, gather your buddies and flock on down to good old Thirst for an ice-cold drink and a tasty meal. Just book a table in advance for evenings and weekends – you don’t want to be left disappointed.
