It is truly a blessing to design a wine list for a restaurant as accomplished as this, to work with the vast palates our industry has to offer and to have the ability to sample some of the world’s finest wines just off our doorstep.

Taking into consideration our patrons ever increasing knowledge on evolving wines, to the rainbow of delicately crafted authentic Thai dishes, it has been a challenge to impress and surpass the expectations of our ever growing clientele.

Our passion knows no bounds. In just over two months, we have tasted the best South Africa has to offer: From the cool slopes of Elgin to the frozen mountains of the Cederberg; From the warm and ever inviting vines of Stellenbosch, to the elegant valleys of Franschhoek, we have paired each wine on this list to an assortment of our culinary delights.

 

All of our wines have been carefully selected and stored at an optimal temperature and in a humidity controlled environment to aid with the aging process.

We have a large selection of premium wines by the glass to ensure your dining experience is enhanced with every sip.

We invite you to browse through our cellar collection. These wines have been carefully selected and only placed onto the list when they are at their drinking best. We have not put tasting notes down for our cellar collection, as with age, the wines evolve.

Due to the rarity of our cellar collection wines and the time we have taken to cellar them, their availability is limited. Especially those of a maiden vintage and single barrel collection.

Our team is happy to guide you through your culinary experience with us here at South Africa’s number one voted Asian Restaurant.

Thank you and enjoy your Kitima experience.

 

Wine by the glass: 185ml per serving; Dessert Wine: 75ml per serving. Prices are subject to change without notice. All products and services provided are subject to our general terms and conditions. Please note corkage is not permitted.
