Transformed from a twentieth century house, Asoka is a restaurant and bar where leisure meets mystique. As table mountain towers over our roof, the deck is the perfect spot to unwind and watch Kloof Street spill down from our doorstep. Inside our unassuming shell, in the glow of candlelight – that’s where the magic happens; where food awakens the senses and cocktails keep them enticed. Asoka is the playground of celebration and the home of the city’s most seductive house music.
Our menu comprises of tasting plates that have been designed around the 5 elements: Earth (vegetarian), Water (seafood), Wind (chicken & duck), Fire (meat) & Nirvana (dessert) which are all put together to offer a unique & varied taste experience with influences from international cuisines and cultures. Our chefs are lovers of sharp flavours, fragrant herbs and rich spices. Asoka’s range of interesting dishes creates dinners that are best shared. We don’t just offer meals, we encourage experiences, and because we understand that a night on the dancefloor can stir up quite the appetite, our kitchen is open until midnight.
Asoka’s cocktails are legendary, an ode to the bar’s sensual soul. Spirits are fused with the freshest ingredients to create a cocktail experience like no other. Our drinks menu is extensive, a collection of classics and thrilling signatures that continue to embody the essence of Asoka.
Around the legendary olive tree in the Cape Town City Bowl, the famous Asoka lives. For over a decade, Asoka has been the gem of Kloof Street, offering a sensual experience with intoxicating energy and music that awakens the soul and electrifies the mind. Here, patrons are tantalised by an evening of culinary and rhythmic indulgence.
The palpable buzz that unfurls is testament to our belief in the power of great food and soulful sounds to bring people together – and as rulers of our petit palace in the city, we have one simple request: come for dinner, stay for drinks.
