Nice small piazza with restaurants and café around. A couple of Nelson Mandela statues; giant with everyone taking pictures with and one tiny like 1 m tall. The square has good number of restaurants like Butcher's HARD ROCK Raj (Indian) It is connected to 2 malls (biggest Sandton)
I definitely feel like I'm out hanging around this place. Great restaurants. When searching for Mandela Square entrance try looking for the North tower, thank me later. Walking thru the mall is a hassle.
