Kathrine Pope

Owner Dennis Sung and executive chef Karen Hwang – both originally from Korea – have brought great ramen, donburi and udon to the ‘burbs, since opening in early December 2017.

Food
Expect a mix of Japanese and Korean specialities. Kick things off with the very rich, but tasty crispy salmon skin, and a double order of gyoza. The delicate and well-executed pork or chicken dumplings are a real highlight of the menu.

Sushi is justifiably popular. Try one of the specials like the dragon rolls with tempura prawns, caviar and mayo, or flaming salmon rolls with velvety torched salmon, mayo, spring onion, caviar and teriyaki sauce.

Ramen is delicately flavoured and filling. Try the ton-kotsu ramen with pork bone broth, pork belly chashu, spring onion, bean sprouts, nori, and a toffee-like seven-minute egg.

The donburi – Japanese rice bowls – come with beautifully crisp-crumbed chicken katsu (a panko-crumbed schnitzel), though you may find yourself wanting a little sauce. Possibly the katsu served with Japanese curry is a better option.

There are no desserts.

Drinks
At the time of writing, Haru did not have a liquor license, so bring your own for no charge, or try one of the green, oolong or black teas.

Service
Quiet but efficient.

Ambience
Pale grey walls and blonde wood cladding make for a light bright space. The full tables make up for the slightly too brightly lit interior. Some tables are a little close together, so be prepared to converse with your neighbour.

Best for...
a relaxed sushi and ramen dinner in the suburbs.

    Pretty authentic Asian place, very different to the usual CT eateries, must try! Trying hard to not keep on ordering their Poke Bowl, just stunning....
    Greta spot in the 'burbs for lunch or supper. Dennis the owner is friendly and efficient. Great ramen, tempura and sushi.

    A great little gem in the burbs! (Just avoid the school rush from neighbouring Rondebosch Boys if you can...) The main offerings are Japanese, so you can look forward to thick udon noodles in broth with delicious titbits, crispy tempura and perfectly made sushi. Don't forget to order some calming and fragrant tea. It's pretty simply furnished and calm inside, and there is a smallish crowd over lunch.

    Great place for a quick weeknight meal! Delicious, fresh food served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Only disappointment was that two sections on the menu have been crossed out as not available - pity, as they sounded delicious! Will be back.
    Loved our new local Japanese restaurant - excellent service; delicious food.
