Six months ago I visited Beluga several times, and raved about their sushi and sashimi. Earlier this month I again visited--three times--and once again was totally blown away by the quality of their sushi and sashimi. Friendly staff and at the current rand/dollar exchange rate, a bargain!

Beluga is awesome! 50% off sushi on a Sunday is such a great deal!! Affordable, fresh, delicious sushi served by friendly staff in a bustling restaurant.

We ate dinner at this restaurant, and I have to say it was one of the better places that we ate at during our trip to Cape Town. The wine was excellent, the Food fantastic, and the Price was very reasonable. The wait staff were friendly, and the ambiance was nice. I would highly recommend Beluga.

Beluga used to be the place to go be seen, eat a little and drink bubbles or cocktails all night . See and be seen. Now it's expensive, the staff if you can get hold of one are surely and the food takes forever to come out and then often wrongly cooked or cold. Won't be hurrying backp

Good menu with fabulous food and friendly service. Lively atmosphere but if you are a couple you may want to ask to be seated away from big groups. We could barely hear ourselves talk!

Beluga was one of the best in cape town . Its seems that they have not evolved since opening. The menu is still the same the waiting staff average. I remember when the food and service was the best but its become average. Nothing special. Please bring back the old beluga and servruga.please bring back the material napkins. Serviettes suck....

Beluga is a great venue with a comfortable vibe, service is excellent despite the size of the restaurant and its obvious popularity. They offer a wide range of meal choices including a special offer on Sushi which is unbeatable in price. I love spicy food, so the Angry Chicken curry was just up my alley. Deliciously spicy with tender chicken,... More
