“Great choice of shushi and asian dishes”
Review of Rock Sushi Thai

Rock Sushi Thai

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Rock Sushi (THAI) began in the picturesque fishing village of Hermanus in 2004, when owner of the Harbour Rock Restaurant, Francois Barnard, decided to expand the repertoire of his highly successful seaside restaurant. A Master Sushi chef was headhunted, and alterations on a new kitchen within the building began. Thai Cuisine has always been known for its clean, fresh flavours. Beautifully fragrant ingredients like ginger, lemongrass and coriander give Thai cuisine its distinct and unique flavour, loved by people the world over. Rock (SUSHI) Thai is an embodiment of this mantra.

“Great choice of shushi and asian dishes”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

Discovered this restaurant by chance last week-end, while looking for a place to have sushi but also other asian dishes. We started with the crispy duck in little pancakes, which was done the way it should be: very crispy duck and all the trimmings to fill the pancakes with. After some nice steamed dim sums, we went on to sushi, and found it excellent. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere warmed up when more people filled the tables. All in all, a very good restaurant experience, which we will definitely repeat at our next visit to Cape Town.

“Disappointing Thai and sushi”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We were disappointed with the food. I ordered vegetarian Phad Thai. It was extremely sweet - and no balance in the flavour and it did not come with the peanut sprinkles. We asked the waitress for the peanuts but it was like peanut powder and not chopped peanuts. My husband ordered the Angry Duck which was served luke warm also lacking in flavour. We tried the sushi - salmon & cream cheese - this was not good at all. Our waitress seemed to be annoyed because I did not order a drink. All round a poor experience for us.

“nice neighborhhood restaurant”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 via mobile

after having tried all the other restaurants in newlands, we finally gave this one a go. i have to say, we left very satisfied- pleasant and efficient service, good wine list, nice menu with lots of choice. my son had sushi and found it superior to what he had at the sushi box, and the pickled ginger wasn't dyed bright pink. my green curry with veggies was acceptable although light on vegetables. the sweet and sour chicken pleased our guest. very nice atmosphere, lively but relaxed. i would recommend it over barristers, basilico and wijnhuis.
