Owner's description

On the ground floor, Torii offers casual Japanese food from yokocho (street food alleys) in a space inspired by the multiple layers of old and modern Tokyo.

Dishes range from traditional Japanese breakfast, bento and sando boxes, tempura temaki, steamed hirata buns, yakitori and gyoza along with more substantial ramen or rice bowls and our famous Atsui Dog. Don't miss the playful selection of mochi, Japanese cheesecake, fluffy soufflé pancakes & taiyaki. Torii bar provides sake, local and Japanese beer, and our own Tjing Tjing red and white wines in collaboration with David & Nadia Wines.

    This place never lets me down! Always consistently great service followed by amazingly crafted delicious Japanese inspired delights. If you've never eaten here and you like Asian cuisine - do yourself a favour and go here now! Go here today!
    Have you ever stepped into a place and completely forgotten where you were? Like it sent you into a alternative city and time zone? Well this is what it's like when you step into Tjing Tjing and more specifically Torii. We arranged a staff lunch here last Friday, and not for one second were we sorry. The menu boasts various Japanese street foods and everything I placed in my mouth was delicious. From the pork steamed buns, to the hot wings, to the pork ribs, to the chicken yakitori, to the dumplings, to the miso butter for the roasted corn...(yup I ordered all of those), you can't go wrong. Do yourself a favour, stop ordering average asian takeaways, and treat yourself to something delicious and authentic. 10/10
    Food is amazing here. Japanese flavors and the best cocktails in Cape Town. The one thing that did not work well, is that the food came out in stages. Some people in our group had 3 bites before them and were done with 2 before one of the other peoples food came out and she only ordered 1 bite. Still good service otherwise and really enjoyed the ambience
    Wow wow wow What an amazing restaurant! The food was out of this world!!! The trout tempura hand roll was my favorite!!! I wanted to cry of joy while I was eating! The flavors was magical!!! The desert we had was the cheese cake... wow wow wow! I was super impressed and never had such a wonderful experience at a restaurant! Can’t stop talking about the food!! Thank you all for the awesome and friendly service
    What a spot! Torii was recommended by a friend with very high standards and I am so glad we took her advice. The best dishes of the night were triple fried hot wings, the pork belly hirata and the Atsui Dog but everything we ate was excellent. The service was great, and the reasonably priced house wine, the Red Blend from David & Nadia, was delicious. I suspect this little spot will become a bit of a regular for me.
