The menu at Thoban Chefs focusses on Asian cuisine and everything we have eaten there was delicious. It is located right on the beach with stunning sea views and great ambience. The best of all however, is the awesome service, especially from Vicky. She is...very knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations. The owner and manager of this restaurant can count themselves very fortunate to have someone of her caliber in their service.More

Really disappointed with the takeout that we got from you. Although tasty enough, the portions are TINY and quite a lot more expensive than elsewhere. Pictured is R115 worth of chicken and noodles, apparently. Terrible value for money and not a great way to garner...support from locals.More

My boyfriend and I took a day trip to Langebaan with no bookings made for food except for seeing Thoban's as comng up first in Google when searching for top spots to eat in Langebaan. It was extremely busy and were very lucky to get...a table. The manager(I think) who was faultless, was the only person to help us which is where is all started to go wrong. We had the oysters as starters - they were good but nothing to write home about. We then sat for almost TWO hours waiting for our mains to be ordered and delivered. I watched 4 tables arrive and leave in the time we waiting for our 2 simple seafood combos. When the food arrived it was wildly underwhelming. I would go so far as to say it was pre-frozen fish and calamari. All tasteless and loaded with crumbing. My garden salad consisted of a few lettuce leaves, a quartered tomato and a few pieces of cucumber. My partners egg noodles was spagetti loaded with sesame oil and nothing else. We were so hungry after the wait that we ate the food for fear of sending it back and waiting another hour. I am not one to complain about food ever, coming from the industry - I know what it can be like. But I was left quite shocked at the lack of quality. Saying that though - the sushi that was coming out of the kitchen looked good so I am assuming its safe to say.. stick with the sushi. Unfortunately will not be coming back which is such a pity.More

This is the first time we have managed to get back to Thoban as COVID put paid to visiting Langebaan last year. We were keen to try Thoban again as we had enjoyed it so much on our previous trip and although the location had...changed we were glad to find that not only was the food of the same high standard but the location on the beach was much better than the previous place. It has a great menu which is quite diverse with something for everyone no matter your taste. We will definitely be returning.More
