On the whole, I would go back again. Yes it is expensive but the food is good. Value for money....probably not the best value money can buy. But in fairness, it is a destination restaurant, so I would recommend you make a night of it and soak up the vibe in the bar. I wouldn't recommend sitting in the main... More

I love going to Katima. Food is always good as is the service. They have an extensive menu and can honestly say that I have not had anything I did not like although, beware of any thing that starts with "angry"mon the menus e.g. Angry duck - it's very very hot

I had not been to Katima in the last couple of years because it was usually full when we tried to book, so I expected it to be good. The food was not good - it was the same or worse than the sort of quality that you get at Thai take aways in most cities of the world. The... More

We love Kitima, we've eaten there about 6 times. So it was an easy choice for my husband's 30th Birthday dinner celebration. From the moment I enquired the service was phenomenal. Liz, the events manager, was super professional and helpful. Nothing was too much for her and if we did hit a speed bump in our planning she was ready... More

It's a little overpriced as far as CT restaurants go (overseas travellers will still be pleased however), but this is a great, vibey restaurant, with a cocktail bar that belies your in rural Hout Bay and not London! Sushi is really good and the Sunday buffet is pricey but a great experience. Thai curries are tasty and authentic.

The moment you walk into the restaurant, you immediately know weather you made the right choice for dinner or not. From the service, decor, ambiance and most importantly the food it all came together beautifully at Kitima. It was a gastronomic experience & this is a gem of a place - comes strongly recommended.

Kitima's has one of the finest ambiences in all of Cape Town, sophisticated yet warm and cozy, with attention to detail. The cuisine is magnificent and priced remarkably well for such a fine establishment. Only flaw is that they've taken fried bananas off the desert menu.
