Have been to this restaurant a great many times. It is a local favourite. We started by ordering take-out most Friday evenings from it, but realised that the food was so much better straight from the kitchen, and on crockery - and at the same price! Over the years, we have tried most dishes on the menu. There are about a half dozen that are reliably excellent, although some have now become quite expensive (e.g. the duck dishes, at about R140 I think). The waiters at the Thai Cafe Hout Bay over the years have been consistently excellent - one of the drawcards for us (thanks Bothwell, Pretty, and the many others who work or have worked there). The setting is good, especially if you sit outside on the deck, in the summer. The food arrives quickly, and is, as I have said, consistently good. It is not top-rate Thai, but at the prices, and for the whole package, a great deal.

This was my first visit after craving Thai cafe houtbay. Iv been to all the branches in cpt. But the service and portions received from the Houtbay branch is not even to mention. Bad service unfriendly staff and I'm definitely not paying them a visit again.

Thank you for your 2nd ever Trip Advisor Review. You cannot even be bothered to detail the complaint properly and write like a 12 year old texting friends.

Are you for real is the review for real?

So happy we won't be seeing you again - goodbye!
