Always love this place and every time we visit Cape Town we go back, food is amazing and so in the Ambience, if there was a drawback it would be the tables are broad and you’re sitting far away from each other.

Bombay Brasserie is located in the Taj Hotel and has a nice, fine dining ambience. The menu is fairly small and doesn't have a huge variety of dishes. We were one of only 3 tables seated for an early dinner reservation time, and despite the...More

Bombay Brasserie is located in the Taj Hotel. It is darkly lit with a rich and elegant mood setting. The food was very delicious and the pacing of the staff was perfect. Make sure to make reservations in advance. Well worth it!

In peak traffic it will take no more than 10 minutes from the harbour area to the restaurant. You have the added advantage of having the Company Gardens & Iziko museum across the road and Bo-Kaap a 10-15 minute walk up the... More
