Top restaurants

Indian Restaurant
“More than 10 restaurants crammed between Long and Adderley street. Ranging from Wok/ Tandoori / Curry I usually get a Curry & Naan/Paratha bread. Main tip: you order at one cashier then go to the respective restaurant. ”

Japanese Restaurant
“FYN’s menu (and decor) is African-inspired, with an overarching Japanese aesthetic, making for an utterly seductive (and delicious) combination of tastes, flavours, textures and styles. The restaurant’s fast-paced innercity location informs the menu – a condensed five-course kaiseki–style experience – with some of the most original wine pairings, courtesy of Jennifer (who spent 17 years at La Colombe as sommelier and manager). As for the setting, the restaurant perches on the fifth floor, boasting sky-high views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. The interiors are sophisticated, warm, up-to-the-minute, with the kitchen in the centre of the space.”

Plaza
“Their sushi is top-notch and there's oodles of character in this little place. If you're after a small healthy lunch-time bite to tie you over for your big dinner plans, have the 4 piece sushi at +/- R55. If you need a little bit more, there is ofcourse 8 piece offers as well as the trending poke bowls. ”
