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.

As ever Kitima continues to deliver on every level, walking into the historic home is like being invited to the best party you've ever been to, style and attention to detail is everywhere from the wall coverings, floral displays, art to the well well turned out charming staff. Liz, front of house, is a particular delight, nothing is too much... More

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.

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
