Beluga is one of my favourite restaurants to visit. Their sushi and fish are up there with the very very best. Staff is professional and service is really great. And to top it all, their cocktails are absolutely divine!

Best service. Great atmosphere. One of the best sushi spots in cape town. Suggest making reservations as they are usually fully booked. Pricing above average but worth every cent.

Really nice atmosphere at this place, and impeccable service. Every morsel of food we ordered was incredible. The duck & ginger dumplings are still in my thoughts and dreams! Great sushi....Samurai roll and crunchy tuna roll w/black bean drizzle.

Beluga has always been my favourite sushi and dim sum spot in Cape Town. It is great value for money when you take advantage of the specials, the sushi is always fresh and delicious, and the dim sums always perfect. The atmosphere is sophisticated and the staff are always attentive and friendly.
Unfortunately, my last visit to beluga was not pleasant. It took a good 15 minutes before anyone realised we were there and came to serve us - the place was not busy at all. I ordered the usual sushi I always get - rainbow rolls, tuna crunch and salmon roses. I noted that none of the faces were familiar and assumed there must have been a change of staff - I didn't recognise any of the sushi chefs or floor staff.

The sushi arrived within 20 minutes but it was unfortunately not up to scratch. The salmon in the roses was cut too thick, and the sushi smelled quite strongly of fish (it might sound silly, but this is not usually the case). The ingredients did not taste as fresh as they usually are. The sushi also fell apart quite easily when using chopsticks, and it was quite a messy experience.
I'm disappointed as Beluga used to be my number 1 spot for sushi - but this time I am hesitant to return.

Went for dinner with a friend and was left disappointed with the sushi. There just wasn't anything special about it and I won't be returning for sushi. There are many more sushi restaurants in Cape Town that serve tastier sushi. I would recommend going for cocktails as there is a great selection and they are really good.
