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.

“Terrible service!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

The service was absolutely shocking! We waited 45 minutes for our starters and another hour for our mains. Our waiter forgot to bring our drinks and we had to remind him numerous times. 1 table walked out and the three tables around us all had complaints. The food was just terrible and the service was worse. I definitely do not recommend this restaurant

“Excellent find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

After driving past this restaurant a number of times we decided to visit with friends. We were welcomed by the very friendly waiter who was attentive throughout the meal, even though the restaurant was full. The food was excellent, the sushi is amongst the best I have eaten anywhere. We will definitely be back!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

On a recent business trip to Cape Town, I and my group of friends discovered this little gem and ate there pretty much every day! Huge selection of sushi and a lovely selection of eastern food, there was something for everyone. The service was great and we felt at home from our first visit. Twice we got takeaway which was just as good. Highly recommended.

“The Service was average and so was the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Nothing to write home about, the Tom Yum soup was good but that was about it. The main course starter platter was Blah, the spring roles were doughy, the corn cakes were bland and the tempura shrimp had not spice or taste. The waitress was not friendly either. This won't be my first or second choice for good Asian food in the area.
