Fantastic place with authentic thai food. I had the green chicken curry which was divine and Dim Sum to start with, the service was great and it was good value for money.

Kitima is by far one of the best dining experiences in Cape Town. The service, food and decor are all excellent. Dim sum is some of the best I've eaten. A variety that you don't find anywhere else. Dinner ended with cocktails at the bar. We are definitely going to be back.

I love Asian food, especially Thai! And I have always wanted a Lamb Thai curry but have never come across it. Kitima however does have a lamb Thai curry and it is everything I dreamed of. We were a medium sized group so we all tried a little of eachothers meals and I must say that it was exceptional. The... More

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and top notch service. Whether you visit the every popular sunday brunch (you are advised to book well ahead!) or you book the big round table affectionately known as the book club special or drop in for a their addictive chilli martini or three, I don't think it's possible to leave Kitima disappointed.

This is my favourite restaurant for special occasions in Hout bay and it certainly deserves the medal for top Thai restaurant in the country! Numerous visits over a period of 5 years has not dimmed my expectation of superb and friendly service, delicious meals with varied and interesting choices, always well presented. The entrance hall has a dining table beautifully... More

Venue is very elegant but still relaxed; it is big but split in 3-4 smaller rooms so it feels cosy. Wide selection of cocktails that you can have at the bar or at your table directly. Food menu is varied; there is a lot to choose from with influence from different parts of Asia. All what we tasted was good... More

Great atmosphere, excellent service, great bar, good wine list, cosy fires. What more can I say! Ostrich was really good and the duck even better. Wine list sound. All in all, a very good experience. Price was very reasonable given the quality.

Kitima serves a Thai buffet for lunch on Sundays. Once again, the food was yummy: this time, apart from the 'normal' sushi & sashimi, there were 3 different delicious cooked sushi rolls (chicken, salmon, prawn) - mmmm. My favourite starters (apart from the sushi) are the dim sum. There were also other interesting starters and a soup. Various Thai mains... More

My first Kitima experience was in 2009 on my honeymoon. I could not believe that "Cape Town" was "hiding" such a gem from the rest of the world. The food and presentation thereof is so so so good it just added to the nuances of our honeymoon. I have returned several times after that. Memorable would be an understatement. World... More

We have been to Kitima on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed, either by the food or by the service. Yesterday's dinner was upped a notch by our waiter Junior. He certainly is a gem and they are very lucky to have him work there. The fact that this restaurant was fully booked in the middle of winter is... More
