“Everything was great!.....AND open on a Sunday night...”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Kalinka's well lived up to its reviews. Service, ambience and particularly the food were all outstanding. The starters with the cilli dim sum dipping sauce were world class! And worthwhile to know that while a lot of the other restaurants in town were closed, Kalinka's was open on Sunday night.

“Great food great value”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We read about Kalinka on Trip Advisor and decided to try it even though the menu didn't enthuse us. The reviews were right! The meal was very good as was the service and an incredible price for what we got. I would readily recommend this restaurant.

We would highly recommend Kalinka for dinner. A lovely oriental twist to South African food. Very welcoming, excellent service and very well priced.
