“Ra-Ra-Ramen!”

I was in the mood for Ramen so invited a friend of mine and set off to Obi with a cold bottle of Hermit on the Hill Skermunkel Semillon 2016. As always the service was friendly and efficient and the food (we shared a bento box for starters and each had a portion of Ramen) was excellent and good value for money. Going again on Monday with my wife.

If you are looking for pure quality sushi, this is your place! Big ups to Papa San's OBI! Excellent service, an absolute pleasure to dine at this gem of a place!

There is a lot of really good sushi in Cape Town, and this is not one of those places. It is alright, but very average and therefore very overpriced.

I love it when Ginger and Wasabi are served naturally - no bright colours etc. That was the first thing I enjoyed about Obi, as well as the cute, authentic decor and table settings. The food was amazing, and I managed to order a few vegan options even. Great service too
