  • I am new to Cape Town and decided to go to the very much talked about V&A Waterfront for a look around. While walking around I came across Seelan Restaurant and Bar. Not being a very adventures person, I was a little worried that I wouldn't enjoy the food that much as I have never really had Mediterranean food before. Well, I was very happy with the friendly staff and the restaurant itself was beautiful with a great atmosphere, the food just blew me out the water. It was amazing. Absolutely beautiful.

  • Seelan takes a variety of dishes, as well as his own signature meals to create a menu that sparks imagination for your palette. From seafood, to pasta, to poultry, there’s a dish with a personal touch on Seelan’s menu. I opted for a Wild Mushroom & Truffle pasta, my boyfriend had the duck - something he hasn’t had before. The weren’t words to describe the meal except “OMG!” and “Wow! This is SO good!” Whatever you try on the menu, I know it’s going to be packed with flavour and taste. Seelan get everything right. A vibe, atmosphere, food and drinks. Take a drive to the Waterfront, and indulge in a fusion of meals.

  • We would like to thank you guys so much for always taking such wonderful care or us. Since 2017 we started going to Seelan’s, the owner Mr Seelan Sundoo has always been very warm and hospitable. He never fails to make every visit a special one from the delicious food to the amazing ambiance. The staff are always very accommodating with the right balance of friendliness and efficiency, on the ball and overall took good care of us. All personnel were very well trained. Our waiter was absolutely superb, we could not decide on what to eat since everything sounded so yummy our waiter the chef surprised us with a mystery dish, it was a seafood platter but no ordinary platter, packed and stuffed (overflowing) with crayfish, prawns, the works! It lacked nothing at all, all your cravings in one - a 2 meter long platter, it just put everyone in awe. The staff is absolutely fantastic, from the manager checking up on us - giving us complimentary dessert, the chef coming to make sure everything is okay. Our waiter so polite, attentive and every attention to detail was given. The food was amazing and arrived within minutes. Everytime you go to Seelan’s at the V&A Waterfront it’s an absolute breath of fresh air, they never fail to make you feel welcomed and at home. the view was just breath taking and the excellent service is the cherry on top of the cake. We have never experienced such good customer service. The food was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. With that being said, I cannot fail to mention….. The delicious rustic bunny chows can be found at Sundoo’s, the delightful spot can be found in the Sea Point area just off the main road. The fresh hollow loafs are filled with delicious authentic Indian curry of your choice. If you have the lamb bunny chow you will not go wrong! The curries are to die for, ridiculously mouthwatering! Usually bunny chows are supposed to be messy but the variety is insane, there is an option of ordering a trio of bunny’s, its less messier and ideal if you prefer eating with a knife and fork. The service is exceptional and the manager Tuno, what a delightful soul. Whilst ordering our food we actually witnessed a little incident.. a young lady was about to pay her bill but accidently blocked her card, seemingly she forgot her password to pay for the bill, she was absolutely distraught about the whole thing, but the kind and understanding staff of Sundoo’s made a plan and allowed her to come back and pay the following day. That’s the beauty of this lovely Indian spot they put trust into their customers and their customers put trust into Sundoo. We will definitely be back for more! Both places are an absolute delight for a quick work lunch, our clients are always impressed! love love love the fact that we can order in for the office, they are available on Mr delivery. Well done & Congratulations on your new restaurant Macau Our next stop! Cannot wait to try it out!!!!!

  • I took my work team members there for lunch. Over the years this establishment has gone backwards. The manager on duty thought he was the resident DJ in a night club and the music went from loud disco to depressing big band to absolute silence. As we were seated infront of the kitchen I could see the chefs preparing the meals. The prep chef was enjoying herself some ingredients of food whilst she was prepping. One for the customer plate one for the mouth and so it continued. The food was dissapointing, I am not sure who concocted the shrimp dish, but the ingredients are not complementary and not what one would expect. The best part of this establishment was Pappa Joe our server, he’s the best. After leaving the establishment I couldn’t help but wonder if it was totally worth the more than R2000 just spent there.
