hot , uncomfortable, i would understand the queue to make a payment, the noise and heat if it was delicious but seriously, i been there 3 times, just because its a convenient location and heard people loving it...not worth the wait and the food. for the price and 10 times better food go to observatory, nelson road,food merchants...absolutely amazing.

This little delis is not that easy to find, but is worth the trouble doing so. It is a little oasis in Woodstock with all kinds of culinary delights. the atmosphere is rustic, but the food is out of this world. A must visit!

The concept of offering made up salads and sandwiches is great. There are usually a range if fresh salads to choose from or an option of 3 types of sandwiches. While service is friendly, the process of making up each order is a little slow which can lead to some long lunchtime queues. Food is good, although the salads can... More

I visited here last week after hearing about this fabulous eatery - i also have the cookbook but never really bothered with it. Once i stepped inside and saw the platters full of tasty feasts, i knew i made the right decision to lunch here. I had the five salad plate and a taste of the lovely rice - what... More

We came here mainly because we had read about Michelle Obama's visit. It was a little difficult to find being tourists and not quite sure where we were going, but when we did find it we were not disappointed. The food was good, staff friendly enough; they didn't seem to mind me wondering into the kitchen to chat to the... More

Fantastic food, laid back atmosphere. Always a hit to come to The Kitchen. I love the 3 or 5 salad option with or without meat. Salads are always good and with a great variety.

Just LOVE the Kitchen! Wholesome, good food and really wonderful friendly staff! I love the choices of salads and would also recommend the grilled chicken breast to accompany it.

One of my fav lunch spots in Cape Town. The healthy food choices are presented in a display and you point at all the deliciousness you think you can fit on your plate. Plate is always empty at the end! Yum!

In Capetown for a month we went to the Kitchen for lunch 2 or 3 times a week. Menu is simple: salads or sandwich. Sandwich has a few variations like which type of meat or bread but don't mess with it too much as they make it perfectly without your input. There is always a fabulous choice of salads from... More

Walking in to this vibey cafe there's no doubt that the owner is a well travelled foodie. I sit down and a book that forms part of the art deco decor catch my eye "Flavour First & Foremost - Angelo Sosa", this book might as well have been written by The Kitchen's cheff him/herself. The food is incredibly flavourful, world... More
