Had sushi and Vietnamese rolls which were very tasty and all washed down with a bottle of Beyerskloof pinotage. It is very dark inside and difficult to read the menu, so long as you have a torch with you it will be ok! Food is on the expensive side but all worth it as the meal was one of my... More

We were here last week. Reserved a table at 21:00, got places at 21:45, while we were waited, nobody asked us if we wanted something to drink. When we left and gave the waiter a tip (which was not that low, about 100Rand) he said it was to low(!), we needed to gave more. Never heard that in my life,... More

Visiting Cape Town on business and tried Haiku. Can seriously say was the best asian dining experience outside of China. Absolutely phenomenal meal starting with tempura sofshell crab, spicy prawn buns, salt and pepper squid and scallop sui mai. The mains were equally as good and the coconut rice is to die for. All in all, a fabulous night and... More

The interesting part about this restaurant is that you have Indian and Asian cuisine under one roof and we tried both. Both were absolutely delicious and the staff was as helpful as nice. A wonderful experience with an incredible view of the Table Mountain from the terrace!

Haiku offers excellent Peking duck menu as well as as set of a set of asian dimsum plates. Their sushi are also very good. A place to go back to.

Lovely food but very pricey compared to other equally good restaurants in Cape Town. It feels like you're paying for the swanky settings and attentive (or is that pushy?) staff. Really nice meal but the bill was shocking- comparable drinks and food can be found much cheaper in less pretentious setting.

Gorgeous decor with dark woods, stunning music, LED spotlights keeping the mood romantic ... these are the great aspects of Haiku. Its also a Halaal restaurant if that matters to you. My first time wasn't great but that was 6yrs ago. We decided to try it out again and had a great evening but mostly because of the great company.... More

The food and service is always awesome. We have been here several times and have never had anything to complain about. Our waiter Michael was absolutely amazing and the food delicious. If you dont mind the price this place is highly recommended.
