We have recently returned to Cape Town after many years in London. While we find a great number of high end restaurants in Cape Town to be absolutely world class (Beau Constantia, La Colombe and so on), we have really struggled to find as many...great restaurants at the mid-price point. Thankfully we came across Dahlia! We went here for take-aways during the recent lock down. The food was incredible. Dahlia is run by a highly skilled hands on chef who really knows what he is doing and is able to create amazing flavour. The front of house lady was equally professional and utterly charming. The portions are generous and the pricing represents excellent value for money. More like this please Cape Town!More

Ordered take-a- ways from Dahlia Sea Point. Outstanding service and delicious food. Had a Sando Special and Biang Biang Beef. Excellent value. Will definitely return. Well done.

We had an amazing dinner at Dahlia for a friend's birthday celebration. Outstanding for me were the chicken wings with dipping sauce, tuna ceviche, and then the short rib noodle dish. Can't wait to go back. Service was friendly and efficient and the owner/chef was...personally manning the kitchen.More

Very limited menu and the options are for sharing which we hadn't realised until we were about to order. Although the menu is limited there are different meat options and vegetarian options. The food was very tasty and well presented. Staff were helpful and efficient....Very good value. I would recommend a visit here - very small restaurant so I'd advise you book!More

The food at Dahlia is off the charts delicious. A small homely restaurant on Regent St that has friendly service to back up the superb food. despite a very small menu, they cater for every taste - meat eater, vegetarian and vegan. Not only is...the food brilliant but value for money is some of the very best you will get anywhere. Quality and taste is on a par with anything at any price. Make sure to book because if you don't, you aint eating there.More

I tried to call the restaurant to find out if they do gluten free options. I was told they do gluten free noodles, I asked if they had a gluten free broth. I was told no, the broth has too many things. Again I asked,...does it contain Soya sauce? As there is no point in having gluten free noodles if the broth has gluten. I have also contacted them on Instagram with no feedback about 2-3 months ago. I have been there, and had the gluten free noodles and still had a reaction which is why I tried to contact the restaurant to find out more.More

Absolutely had a great evening. From the moment we entered the restaurant we had such an absolutely amazing experience. Service excellent and the food out of the books. The ingredients are fresh, organic & locally sourced. It is a cozy restaurant and the head chef...Damian Dafel made sure our food were made to perfection. Each bite were packed with flavor and an adventure for the taste buts. Thank you for such a great Asian experience.More

The drinks are a bit on the pricey side (though they do allow corkge which is great though...its R70 which is quite high) but that's my only crit.. Definitely will be back, we were so impressed! Such a fantastic place- thank you guys!More

Have been to this restaurant yesterday. Felt quite casual, small tables and an open atmosphere, the dishes are come in bowls and are basically a lot of Suyuan peppers with some vegetables which I loved. The drinks (wine) are also good, and I really loved...the pickled vegetables and the mushroom starter. 35 EUR/2 persons which is a good price though. It is quite a loud place nevertheless so this is something to concider when you look to booking it.More

Loved this little eatery. The sticky aubergine miso and the short rib noodles were both delicious. The service was friendly and helpful.
