“Sushi and Dim Sum galore”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I wish we had something like this in Munich. Around here, Dim Sum is so hard to find and Sushi is way overpriced. Beluga offers everything: stylish setting, good service, great food/wine and affordable prices. We had Dim Sum and about 36 rolls of Sushi - all paired with a great wine and followed by a Creme Brulee. Definitely go there when you are in Cape Town. We loved it!

“Credit card fraud at Beluga”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you eat at Beluga DO NOT USE A CREDIT CARD!!!!! My boyfriend and I visited SA a year ago and had dinner at Beluga. While the service and food were average, the biggest disappointment was that a year later we discovered that for the past few months our credit card has been punched in we have been getting charges from Beluga. In fact, today we learned that the staff - probably the server we had or even manager, tired to punch in the numbers again and were declined since we have now cancelled that card. If you eat here, I advise that you do not use your credit card to avoid spoiling what could have been a semi-average dinner.

“Trendy, hip, beautiful crowd”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is the place to go for sushi and cocktails with a group of friends. Ideal to see and be seen as it is trendy. Some even view it as slightly pretentious. I love it for its trendiness. The sushi is also very good and so is the rest of the food. Do try the salmon, the lamb shank and the dumpling with duck inside, very yummy. Service can be very slow so if you're in a rush and hungry, not the best choice as this is mostly a place to chill and enjoy company of friends while waiting for your waiter.

“Disappointing dinner in Cape Town”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

On request from a friend we booked Beluga Restaurant.It had very lively atmosphere which we liked but sadly we were very disappointed with both the food which was badly presented,cold and tasteless and the service which was poor.Not only was it expensive but VAT was added on to our final bill.We will not be going again.
