We had been talking about going to kitima for a while, so decided to convene the ‘cheap and cheerful’ supper club for a ‘not so cheap’ but very cheerful dinner on Friday night.
This restaurant has a winning formula; a combination of more formal and reserved eating areas, and a less formal bar and outside space, which is consistently busy. What a nice vibe!
Its one of the best Thai restaurants in Cape Town.
We started in the courtyard, enthusiastically tucking into the home-made prawn crackers and drinking a very enjoyable Mulderbosch Rose.
I love dim sum, so was very pleased to see a whole page worth of options in a very extensive menu.
I ate the crispy duck with pancakes which was delicious. The curry was lovely as well as the steamed fish, served on a wire tray with intense lemon grass and Thai flavours.
The service was exceptional, and it was a night filled with laughs, many more bottles of the rose and culminated in the upstairs bar for some shared chocolate spring rolls.
I can’t wait to go back.
Kitima is located in the old Kronendal Manor House on Main Road in Hout Bay
