Shio is 50 seater restaurant (inside and outside) located in the trendy neighborhood of De Waterkant in Green Point. They serve modern Japanese cuisine with a pacific rim influence.
They have created a menu that is designed to be shared. Shio is the 3rd restaurant by Cheyne Morrisby. The restaurant has created a simple yet colorful interior that will compliment and add to the dining experience.
I truly do love the food here. Everything is unbelievably fresh and super tasty. Can’t really ask for more than that.
Really like the small intimate venue and it’s in one of my favorite areas in town.
Great restaurant, can’t wait to go back.
An absolutely incredible experience! The waiters were extremely accommodating and friendly. The food is an experience by its self and presents you with a variety of flavour that are beyond incredible. The atmosphere is lovely and was the perfect venue for an evening out with friends.
Shio was very elegant and the best restaurant I have been to. The service was great and the food was delicious! Definitely a go to place. Looking forward to going again.
This month Friends of the Vine were lucky enough to host their October Pinot Noir tasting at Shio Restaurant, in the heart of the popular, and very vibey De Waterkant. Shio Restaurant, at The Grey Hotel, is a Japanese-inspired fine-dining restaurant with a beautiful twist. Shio offers a selection of various Japanese dishes, with a tapas style, but my suggestion would definitely be to try their mouth-watering 10 Dish Kaiseki Experience for R350 p/p, only on the menu till the end of this week! It was unforgettable and unlike anything you will ever experience!
A carefully crafted multi-course Japanese dinner experience, made up of beautifully plated dishes, is presented by restaurateur and chef, Cheyne Morrisby and his warm, pleasant and efficient waitrons, in a meticulously prepared, exquisite way that blows you away when each set of dishes (usually brought in a set of two or three) are presented. My personal favorite were definitely the Yellowtail sashimi served with a liquid kimchi, lime pickle wasabi oil coconut gel and crispy onions and the Tokyo beef with roasted shiitake, gochujang cream, black caviar and nori dust. The night ended off with a 50% dark chocolate, poached nashi pear gel, cashew praline with chocolate and toasted sesame ice-cream, all while enjoying beautifully paired South African Pinot Noir wines in the the low-lighted laid back atmosphere and listening to the latest trendy music in the back ground.
Great, high quality food and excellent service that left us planning our next visit at the very first bite- I will definitely recommend this restaurant. This place is perfect for groups or a casual date night but gets filled up quite quickly so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Thank you Shio for hosting us and exceeding all our expectations!
My favourite! Best vibe and food for a special evening out!
