Fans of South Indian food will be happy to hear about a new tapas eatery that’s opening on Regent Road later this month. Restaurateur Seelan Sundoo of Seelan Restaurant and Bar at the V&A Waterfront is the man behind Sundoo, an eatery where diners can get a taste of South Indian cuisine in the form of small-plated dishes that are meant to be shared.
Seelan, who has previously worked as chef at La Perla, Grand Café & Beach and Shimmy Beach Club, has roots in Kerala, Southern India. “I want Sundoo to represent the best of my Kerala heritage in a comfortable, chic environment,” he says “and for it to become a home away from home for Capetonians.”
Sundoo will serve authentic tapas-style South Indian dishes, such as chicken, duck or quail prepared with yoghurt and spices and served with poppadoms or a dosa. You can also look forward to dishes cooked in a traditional tandoori oven and spicy biryanis made with fresh vegetables, seafood or meat.
Sundoo will seat about 40 people, which means booking may be essential. It is due to open towards the end of September at Shop 6, La Rhone, 77 Regent Road in Sea Point – opposite The Point centre. To find out more or to book, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
