Don't be put off by the venue, although it's not a very nice area the size of the bouncer is enough to deter the local rough sleepers etc. The night was so different and a great party venue we all had a great time even...the food was far better than we expected and the cost for what you get is a bargain. We're going again for one of their productions, Grease, can't waitMore

If I could give this experience a 10 out of 5 then I definitely would. What an absolutely fabulous place. We went with our adult children ranging from 18 - 30 and every single one of us said it was one of the best evenings...we have had. The singing was moving, to the point where it brought tears to my eyes. I loved every minute of the evening, the food, the staff, the managers, and the fabulous voices. Wow - I will certainly recommend this place over and over again and will definitely be back myself. Thank you for such a beautiful experience!!!!More

This is a must do when in Cape Town! What a fantastic night despite being quite quiet due to it being during the week. Have recommended it to friends who live in CT and didn't know about it? Fantastic food, service, and the entertainment was...THE BEST. As the night went on it, it went into party vibe and the quality of the singers is unbelievable. Def worth more than the 15% tip added to the bill. They are worth this and more! Go and you won't be disappointed.More

We called the restaurant on our last night in Cape Town and they said they were full. We told them we were from Canada and leaving the next day. The owner said to come and he would seat us at the bar. We arrived and...we sat at the bar facing the stage. The owner welcomed us with shots and spoke to us for a while. We enjoyed the 3 course meal and the entertainment. It was so much fun. The owner's wife, also an owner, came and chatted with us for a while. They were both so friendly and lovely. They had vegan and gluten free options for me and hubby had the regular menu. The food was pretty good but the fun was in the singers/servers. People were dancing on tables and around their seats! A definite must do when in Cape Town.More

I happened to stumble across this restaurant googling the area where our hotel was. The reviews were really good, but in all honesty they didn't come close to the ABSOLUTELY AMAZING time we experienced. Hands down the most fun we've had in a dining experience....The food was outstanding, the service brilliant, the performers, who were also the servers, were INCREDIBLE.. I say that in caps, cos I don't think it expresses how good they were. They even got my husband dancing.. And he doesn't dance.. Not even at our wedding. It's a shame we live so far away, cos this is definitely something I would do again. Top food, Top performers, Top experience. Just brilliant!More

One of my best evening in Cape Town. Ambience and artists are phenomenal. The food is ok and service is hyper friendly and organised. Now the only reason we rated StarDust 4 is due to the billing. ( Management be aware ). All paid deposits...were not deducted and not even announced when the bill came. It gave a cheap end feeling. Correct the above, then you simply rock.More

Wow, I've just seen that the last time I reviewed Stardust was nine years ago now, and in the intervening years has become even better. The Stardust restaurant and theatre is a restaurant in District 6 in the centre of Cape Town city itself. The...last time I reviewed it I said "You do not go there for the food, although it is not bad, you go there for the entertainment". well now I could go there for simply for the food however that would spoil the total experience and ambiance. Your waiters/servers (or whatever ludicrous phrase the woke brigade are using now) are the performers as well. So between serving they get up on stage and sing, dance, play the guitar, violin and etc. They are all aspiring actors/ musicians/university students, so tip them well ... It is a entertaining evening. Booking is essential.More
