Lucky Bean Restaurant

Our name is derived from the beautiful tree mural in the restaurant. This tree, the Erythrina Lysistemon is also known as the Coral Tree and “die Kanniedood nie (cannot die)”. It is called the Mophete in Tswana and the Umsinsi in Zulu.

Lucky Bean is something of a Johannesburg institution with our guests being drawn from the local residents, greater Johannesburg and loads of tourists and business travellers. A favourite of the arts and cultural world, the attraction is the laid back and cosmopolitan style of the restaurant. There is always great music and a great vibe.

The food is contemporary without pretension and we offer an excellent wine selection with fabulous cocktails.

Also commonly known as the Lucky Bean tree, it is used for traditional medicines (muti) and the seeds are used as lucky charms and as beads and necklaces. The trees were planted on the graves of Chiefs.
