We try to go here every time we're in Hout Bay but booking ahead is essential! They do the most delicious Asian food and have an incredible bar area. The interior design is quite spectacular, you would never guess what lies inside from the road. A must if you're in the Hout Bay or general Cape Town area!

The decor is simply amazing and cocoon's one into the very heart of Thailand. The Welcome, Attitude,Service and Attention to detail is thrilling and... More

We ate here twice in the space of a week - I cannot fault the entire experience, from the excellent staff, courteous reception, tremendous cocktails and fabulous food. Seriously, as good as I've had anywhere in the world.

I have always recommended Katima to guests whenever they want to have great Thai food. However I made the recommendations for dinner but based on the feedback I get from the other guests. Me and friend loved their Sunday Lunch buffet but never had the chance to have dinner there. On the spur of the moment we decided that we... More

The sunday Brunch is amazing. The cocktails are the best ever in Cape Town. The service is excellent. Can sit at the fire place and enjoy a Glas of red wine. Excellent menu for traditional asian kitchen with focus on royal-Thai food.

As usual the food was spot on ... Lovely as always. For some reason however we waited over an hour for our main dish ... Slight disappointing as it was a surprise dinner party for my husband .

Everyone raves about Kitima, but we have tried it twice and left feeling disappointed both times. On our last visit the starters were lovely, but my main dish - mushrooms (a recommendation from the waiter) was barely edible. There was so much sugar in it that I (a serious sugar addict) was left with a sugar-rush of note. No attempt... More
