User reviews

  • Shio was recommended by a friend and I was thankful for a last minute reservation a few days later. My friend and I loved the vibe of the small restaurant. It was a cooler evening so we sat inside but it looked like there were a few small tables outside. We ordered 6 of the tapas style plates to share, enjoyed a nice bottle of pinotage and of course had to give in to have dessert. All the dishes were unique and flavorful. While the truffle fries smelled delightful when they arrived, the taste did not match. The service was okay. Keep in mind, I'm from the US and likely evaluate service differently than you might. I enjoyed the fact that we were not rushed, but it did take quite a bit of time to flag down our waiter to order dessert. This might have also been due to a large party that required a fair amount of attention. Overall, I'd highly recommend a night out at Shio!

  • I think we had high expectations. However the waiting time and price promoted this. We ordered 6 dishes (2 of us sharing). The spinach gomae was divine, the sashimi good! But then it sadly started to lack. We had to send back the chilli squid as was unpleasantly tough, tasteless & chewy. Lastly the Forbidden Risotto, made little sense, served with two scrumptious tempura prawns and a bowl of 'tom yum cream' and black rice. Was more like a 'dipping sauce' - with not much to be dipped. Lastly. R32 for purified, gassed tap water doesn't do it for me sadly. Will give it a 2nd go once they teething is over.

  • We had a fantastic meal, Cheyne's food is always delicious and this was no exception. Hard to pick a winner (we tried 9 dishes) but the firecracker prawns were ordered again they were so good. We didn't order the forbidden risotto but having seen it at the table next to us we will definitely try it next time.
