“Cool Vibe!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We had a verry joyful evening. Our table near the bar was a little bit turbulent but not in a bad way. The interior is pretty cool and something totally different and solely therefore it's worth visiting. Booking required.
Our starters and mains where quit good. I had the organic sirloin, which came with guacamole and chimmichurri, interestingly different. Only my desert (crème brûlée) violated my palate.

A really nice place with good (but not excellent) food an an unique vibe!

“Cool place”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

My son is a UCT student so he knew to take us there during our visit to Cape Town. We called for reservations and they were fully booked but they said we could perhaps sit outside. When we arrived, they got us a table right away ouside. It seems "the experience" is mostly inside but we had a lovely waitress and the food was excellent. Chili chocolate steak was incredible. We did however walk through the inside which was really cool and quirky with eclectic décor. I was rather pleased to be outside because it was crowded and loud inside. Great place for the local foreign traveling 20 something year olds to hang out outside too. Definitely worth a visit while in Cape Town.

“Need to try it at least once!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Although Bombay may not be to everyone's taste, I love it. The food is amazing, especially the chili chocolate steak and the ribs (even if slightly pricey) and we've always received good service. It is a great place for a fun night out with a group where you can enjoy the vibe, decor, food and just have fun.

“Bohemian Delight”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We loved the Bohemian ambiance and the food was absolutely incredible.

Service was not the best, but food and ambiance made up for it. Awesome venue for a get together with friends. Not for the pretentious café sociaty crowd.
Absolutely loved the area with swing seats. Such a brilliant idea.

“Awesome Quirky Place With Great Menu”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Great atmosphere if you are not claustrophobic though. Very friendly staff. Menu is a photo album that looks hand made and the food menu looked awesome, pity we didn't have time to eat and only found the place on our last night after supper on the way home. Worth seeking out.
