Description: Between 1835 and 1849 the Kronendal Farm was owned by Sir William Josias Cloete. Legend has it that the homestead is haunted by his daughter Elsa Cloete who died of a broken heart after being forbidden to marry her soldier lover. Kitima still sets and serves a table for Elsa with samples from the menu to appease Elsa's spirit. Welcome to Kitima restaurant where oriental elegance and hospitality meet the unpretentious grace and charm of Africa. Our authentic Thai and Asian Fusion cuisine, prepared by our Thai chefs will carry you to a world of exotic spices, perfumes and all that's precious and exotic. Various dining option are available from our private lover's room seating 2-6 persons, our VIP room seating up to 12 persons, our Temple and Bangkok rooms as well as the Raya lounge for cocktails, drinks, snacks or even dinner to share. Kitima exudes all the splendour of a traditional Cape Dutch homestead with yellowwood ceilings, wooden floors combined with modern Asian artefacts and cuisine. Our cocktail list is extensive and features a number of award winners that are both stunning in taste and appeal. The restaurant has the addition of the garden and the Raya Terrace which are unique covered areas that are available,however these are weather permitting. We invite you to have a taste of true Thai cuisine in a traditional and modernised South African homestead.

A great atmosphere with fantastic buffet of Dim Sum, duck and other Asian cuisine favourites as well as great tasting cocktails and well thought out desserts.

The food, service, ambiance, decor, cocktails-pretty everything about Kitima is out of this world! Hence the waiting list!

Was told about it by friends, but not as impressed as they sounded. Service was ok, as was the food. Wasn't disapointed but not thrilled. Will try again sometime, perhaps just unlucky.

Have been many times but were disappointed to have to wait in VERY long queues for lunch! Too many people! Restaurant too greedy? Also, despite a dress code, was VERY disappointed to see others allowed in who obviously couldn't give a damn and had absolutely no respect for their fellow diners! Shame! I sincerely hope it isn't a sign that management doesn't care and the whole, wonderful, ambience of the restaurant is in major decline! Tread carefully ....

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town. The atmosphere is buzzy; yet relaxing and almost regal. The service is superbly professional. The wine list boasts a wide selection of the Western Cape's finest and the food is tasty and well presented. I have noticed, however, that the portion size has diminished slightly in the last year...
