Around the legendary Olive tree in the city bowl, our famous Asoka unfurls. For over a decade, Asoka has been the gem of Kloof Street, a sensual experience where the music is intoxicating and the energy is palpable. The restaurant tantalises patrons with nights of culinary and rhythmic indulgence.

It is testimony to our belief in the power of food and music to bring people together. Asoka thrives on the journey of a night – from food to cocktails to late nights under the skylight. As rulers of our petit palace in the city, of diners we have one simple request; come for dinner, stay for drinks.

    I guess it depends what you are looking for. I booked months in advance and I was looking for a lovely tapas dinner with live jazz music. We are on holiday from jhb with our friends & I wanted to organise a classy evening with live jazz. The table was incredibly low and difficult to sit at, especially for the men. There was no live jazz, just a DJ. And pretty soon the place was a club. Not a restaurant. It was unpleasant. The email re our booking said we should dress up and yet the hostess is in a bikini. It’s not the experience I thought we were going to have which makes me sad as our time here is limited. When a place promises live jazz then has people crammed in they literally standing over us at our ridiculously low uncomfortable table never mind Covid, just completely disappointing. If you know of a place we can go to have the experience we are looking for please let me know. We are here for two more nights.

    While the ambience was great, the prices of food and drink were exorbitant. Makes sense why the restaurant does not advertise prices on their website. Definitely poor value for money. Will not be returning. Stay away from this venue.

    Stunning food enjoyed in a vibe unmatched in Cape Town. Bespoke setting with a sense-provoking array of menu selections. The courtesy champagne set the tone for a great experience. Will be back soon!
