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.
