Rock Sushi Thai is one of our regular restaurants that we go to. The 20 piece sushi platter is what we usually get. The platter is good value for money. The crispy duck is also excellent ! We also enjoy their spring rolls which come...More

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my Friday night at this gem of a restaurant! Amazing sushi, Thai curries, vibe and friendly staff. Would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys good sushi and a spicy, full of flavor curry dish.

I regularly eat at this outlet and have never been disappointed. Twice in a row I’ve chosen the special of the day: prawn and avo salad and twice I can tick the ‘yes’ box. One small constructive criticism: it’s difficult to eat the long strands...More

This time round the food seemed better though the service was dreadful. Although this restaurant is fairly small it was always difficult to find one of our three waiters on the night. Firstly we waited for the first round of service and then I kept...More

If you are happy to pay good money for stir-fry asian food which is not even as good as your mom's food, then by all means, visit Rock Sushi Thai. The waitron appear to be consumed by student apathy and general malaise. They shuffle along...More

Fairly good thogh a little inconsistent. Defenately will go back for me awkward seating actually works. I love the menu. I found the pricing a bit high perhaps due to the location.

Ok. Let me get this out right up front. I love good sushi. And Rock Sushi Thai makes very good Sushi, while you wait at your table, or take away. The location in Dean Street, off Main Road in Newlands, is easy to find and...More

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.
