Sushi is good, lighting is too dim for me, nice space, lovely waitrons. Worth trying out but it won't leave a mark.

The restaurant was empty and we sat down to order food. The food took a hour to arrive and we were told it was because they are prepping for something. Totally not our problem. The manager was useless. We were then told that it was...More

Staying closely in Rondebosch and looking for a nearby sushi restaurant, we opted to go to Rock Sushi Thai! First appearance all looked appealing, food was good, but for some reason we did not get plates for any of the dishes that were shared. Service...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.
