Fabulous, wonderful Thai and SE Asian food. The Sunday Brunch Buffet is an indulgent treat. I really recommend combining that with a massage in the adjoining spa Coco's for a completely amazing day.

This restaurant is situated in the land mark Kronendal manor house on Hout Bay main road. The food is unreal and service and overall customer feel is 5 star plus! The decor is fantastic and Kitima has embraced the legacy of the ghost story that accompanies the manor house. They even set a dinner table for the ghostly love couple... More

We hosted my husbands 40th birthday on Saturday evening. The decadent decor of the Raya lounge was the perfect backdrop for a Moulin Rouge themed evening. Martin was our host, and right from the start, he was incredibly professional, patient and gracious. The evening went off without a single glitch, the food was delicious and plentiful (we served canapés to... More

We went for lunch and the food selection was amazing. The primary focus of the food is Thai, but there are many other selections such as soups, salads, and delicious dessert selections. We had excellent wines to accompany the delicious foods as well, and the price is very reasonable for the entire experience. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Visited Kitima on our last night in South Africa and had a wonderful meal - not normally a salmon person but rolled a trip advisor comment and had the salmon with pear and it was divine - wife had the prawn sweet and sour and this received top marks as well. Service was exceptional and the ambience of Kitima is... More

For my birthday I was treated to a surprise dinner at Kitima. The second I walked in I felt an positive and engaging energy. We started with a drink at the bar before we were lead to our table. The decor, ambiance and atmosphere all comes together, and the staff were friendly, well mannered and very friendly. The food was... More

Ok, first up the restaurant its self is stunning. I love old houses. The atmosphere was superb. My sushi I have had better else where, but the rest of the meal was great. We were a large group and everyone raved their food. Even the simple sweet and sour chicken was excellent. A fabulous, fulfilling time was had by all.... More

This is currently my best restuarant in South Africa!! We had the most amazing meal there! The Strawberry and Rose Martini will knock your socks off. Try the Salmon and pear curry as it is divine. We had a blast and will return whenever we can.
