We went twice in our 5 days in Cape town. While the food is absolutely delicious and very flavorful, the wait time for both visits was 1 hour from the time we entered the restaurant until when we received our food. We ordered it right away too. It would be a 5 star rating for sure if the service wasn't so slow.

We ate here recently and had a fabulous meal. We had Samosas as a starter followed by Chicken curry and Bobotie. All were excellent and the price was very reasonable. The food was flavourful without being too spicy. We highly recommend this restaurant

We stopped here today for lunch after hiking table mountain and it was an excellent choice. We had mince samosas that came with three delicious little topping dishes and then my wife and I split the chicken curry with roti. Everything was fantastic I wish we did not have dinner plans or I would’ve eaten like three more things. Highly recommend

Famous Bo Kaap area of Cape town with colourful and historical homes. Views of Table Mountain delights. Neighborhood with history. We enjoyed a delicious meal at restaurant called Biesmiellah. Butter chicken with home made roti bread and Portuguese spiced chicken and rice with a traditional Falooda drink. Comfortable seating and friendly staff. Sanitation procedures in place. A must to visit for tourist experience.

The service was so incredibly slow and there was hardly anybody at the restaurant. On the rare occasion a waiter did appear, their service was poor and frankly weird the way some of them reacted. Although the Cape Malay Curry was quite reasonable, an automatic gratuity of 10% left a bad taste. Why can’t restaurants just be up front about their prices? At best, I would only go back for a take away.

Highly overpriced. Prawn (actually shrimp) curry tasteless watered down in a very very small dish for the price of R180 side dish with very very dry rotis. Will not recommend. Only nice thing to say friendly staff and that's where it ends.

Enjoyed our dinner at Biesmiellah, a restaurant in de Bo-Kaap, specialized in Cape Malay food. Service was fast with a smile. Staff took the time to explain the (Islamic) dishes. The owner stopped by at every table for a chat, very much appriciated!

I had the bobotie which was really good. Wife had marinated lamb chops which was also great. The tables and vinyl covers were really old and need replacing, service was great but waiter was very unfriendly. A good cultural experience

Bo Kaap prices, a lovely stewardess but that’s where it ends. We ordered crayfish curry and roti. Crayfish was not fresh and roti tough. Lackluster koeksusters, but a hefty Bo Kaap bill. Disappointing for Cape Town🥱

Enjoyed lunch with my daughters on the afternoon of 16 Dec - a public holiday. This was the restaurant we insisted on going to on our trip to Cape Town. It was like eating in a friend's place. The food was worth the wait - delicious, the staff were friendly. I am glad we ordered a variety of plates to enjoy. Thank you

Tried several dishes…very average..none impressed. Roti and samosa’s not prepared to order…they had the appearance of yesterday’s offerings. Suspect that a microwave is an overused piece of equipment in this kitchen. Table service was polite.

I love Cape Malay curry. After 4 months in Cape Town, my very favorite was at Biesmillah. Thanks to all of you for a terrific dinner--and for helping me keep it gluten free.

Not what we expected. Meals were good but not great, as some reviews stated. Also a bit expensive. Service was good and friendly.
