Kitima Restaurant – Thai and Sushi cuisine in Hout Bay, Cape Town
Kitima at the Kronendal is situated in an old Cape-Dutch style homestead dating back to the 17th Century which is steeped in history and legend. Several hundred years ago, the Dutch East India Company traded between Europe, the Cape of Good Hope and Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam. At Kitima we are re-creating the romance of this era, when the refinements of an eastern way of life were imported to the west for the very first time.
Although our menu is a compilation of various traditional Asian cuisines, our main focus is on the Royal Thai cuisine which can trace its history back to the legendary palace of the Ayutthaya kingdom in the 17th century.
All our dishes are created with the utmost care by our highly accredited team of Thai chefs, led by Chef Kuan Lai. The ingredients are sourced from the best local suppliers where possible – otherwise they are imported from Thailand specifically for Kitima.
As you enter through her doors you are greeted by an array of senses. From the tantalizing aromas wafting from the dining rooms to the tasteful and elegantly hand picked decorative pieces from Thailand.
Each dining room has its own unique atmosphere, where elegance and opulence is abundant whilst still maintaining an air of unpretentious grace. Guided by the vision of our proprietor Kitima Sukonpongpao herself we have created what we know will be a memorable experience.
