Fashioned on London’s iconic restaurant of the same name, Bombay Brasserie is a restaurant grounded in spice; a story of rich culture, strong heritage and exceptional cuisine.

Named after the multi-cultural and cosmopolitan city in India, Bombay Brasserie Cape Town lives up to its name by offering diverse cooking styles from the four corners of India, but with two unique elements: authentic Cape Town flair and flavour – which results in some of the finest dishes outside of India – and executive chef David Tilly.

Together with his team, using only the best locally sourced ingredients blended with the finest imported spices from India, he creates dishes laced with contemporary flavour while equally delighting the palate and imagination.
