Spring Yum Cha Experience now at Cheyne's
4 dishes for R250 per head.
My boyfriend and I had a lovely lunch at Cheyne's on Saturday! Absolutely delicious food, the nicely spaced and comfortable seating in the courtyard, and the friendly staff made it such a pleasurable experience that we didn't even miss the fact that we couldn't accompany the lunch with an alcoholic beverage (due to the level 3 lockdown regulations). We were too full to try everything that appealed to us so will definitely be going back soon. Highly recommend the chilli salt squid dish (sea) and the pork belly (land) mmmm yum!
The food is stunning and it's a beautiful space too. Runs like a well oiled machine
Excellent value for excellent food we go there frequently
I was so looking forward to trying Cheyne’s after all the rave reviews I’d read. Unfortunately, I was left disappointed due to a few things. Firstly, after ordering a few dishes, the waiter suggested that I make alternative choices as I had selected items that “weren’t great” and ones that other guests "had not liked” – I found this rather odd. Secondly, about 30 minutes after ordering the edamame beans, the waiter explained that the chef wasn’t happy with the quality of beans and asked us to choose something else – I found it strange that this would happen in the middle of service. Thirdly, the timing was off – one dish arrived quite quickly and then we waited almost an hour for the next few, and then we had to flag down the waiter to order dessert. Fourth, the broccoli dish did not include tofu as described on the menu – just some steamed Tenderstem broccoli with a touch of sauce – not very exciting. Overall, I wasn’t impressed by the food and found that it all tasted similar (which I suspect was due to the same sauce being on most of the dishes). I won’t be back.
We went for the dinner special and were blown away. Every dish was absolutely delicious. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back.
