My nephews came to Cape Town on holiday from Taiwan, and we wanted to give them food closer to their own. They had been in Cape Town for almost 6 weeks and were a little homesick. We decided to give this restaurant a try and we were delighted with our choice. The staff were friendly and efficient. The ambience was cosy, the place not too busy nor too quiet, and the food transported us back to Asia. The flavours were authentic and delicious. We tried 6 different dishes and each one had its own individual flavour. Next time we will skip the coconut rice though, as it completely transforms the flavour of the dish. The sago and coconut pudding was really good and the flavour enhanced by the pieces of litchi. The prices are pretty decent too, similarly priced to Simply Asia; but note: this is Restaurant quality food vs Fast food franchise. Definitely worth trying and worth going back.

We went to chef pons kitchen for my husbands birthday. We ordered a platter for 2 as a starter and 3 different main dishes to share. The starter platter was very very oily and the crispy duck and morroccan lamb as well. We enjoyed the Thai chicken curry and rice. The meal was very expensive for what we got and was not value for money. I dont think i will go back again.

Tried Chef Pon's for the first time and was somewhat disappointed. We had five different main courses and while they were all okay, they lacked the wow factor.Would not go back.

The prices are relatively reasonable, the interior of the restaurant is pleasant and warm, and the menu includes a lot of variety with all sorts of Asian cuisine.
