CapeTown and around......seeking restaurant advice

Jump to last reply

To my utter delight, I will be returning to South AFrica in early OCtober for a trip that will begin with a week in CapeTown. Looking for tips on where to eat. I already have Test Kitchen on my list!

Not too interested in "stuffy" French-style dining; innovation is good, as is fabulous seafood;
local farm-to-table, Asian influences--all good.

Last time we loved Showroom (now closed) and had a good dinner at Ginja and LQF in Winelands. Also liked Codfather in CAmps Bay, and the raffish (but perhaps now gone downhill) Panama Jacks at the Docks.

Finally, what is the best northern Indian restaurant in the city..someplace with good tandoori to satisfy the spice shunner, and enough to make me, a spice lover, happy, too.
