Modelled on its namesake in London, Bombay Brasserie has treated guests of Taj Cape Town to the finest in Indian specialty dining with mouth-watering meals, skilfully prepared using traditional ingredients for some of the finest Indian cuisine outside of India.
Amidst its contemporary design and luxurious decor Bombay Brasserie is a prime location for a fine dining experience where guests will find a rich atmosphere of intimacy and exclusivity. Within the elegant opulence of the old Board of Executers Building, Bombay Brasserie has created a luxurious setting where every meal is a gastronomic journey through a delicate melody of flavours and Indian cuisine comes alive in an imaginative and dramatic avatar.
Its highly acclaimed menu has provided an extraordinary choice of starters, mains and desserts as well as a wine list tailored to pair the best of South African wines with the best Indian cuisine. Traditional masala’s or spices are artfully blended with an eclectic mix of classic and unconventional ingredients, to create new renditions of authentic preparations, each unmistakably light, yet bursting with colour, aroma and flavour.
It is with this great tradition in mind that Bombay Brasserie presents a new menu and asks you to join us in savoring the traditions of Indian cuisine presented in a contemporary style by our very own Executive Chef Harpreet Longani and her team in the spectacular city of Cape Town.
Having launched on the 1st of October 2013, the New Bombay Brasserie Menu continues the tradition of modern fine dining Indian fare with a host of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options to all pallets. From roasted yellow corn soup with turmeric popcorn and grilled butter chili prawn starters to mains of lamb shanks simmered in a delicate saffron curry or truffle scented tandoori mushrooms, there is so much more to enjoy at the Bombay Brasserie.

For those who enjoy the great taste of oysters, the annual Knysna Oyster Festival has become one of South Africa’s most loved and popular festivals.
Originally designed as the Knysna Winter Festival to lure tourists to the seaside town of Knysna during the off-peak season, the Knysna Oyster Festival has grown into an eagerly anticipated event for locals and foreigners alike.
Visitors can expect a live concert and street parade from the Band of the South African Navy, as well as an Admiral’s Ball with entertainment provided by the South African Navy Dance Band.
Foodies can look forward to the annual oyster shucking and eating competitions and the Knysna Wine Festival, which will showcase 40 first-rate local wine estates – including bubbly from the Cap Classique Association. The Young Oyster Festival provides plenty of entertainment for the kids, along with features such fun rides, sport workshops, movie screenings, art lessons and more.
The ten day festival takes place from Friday, 28 June until Sunday, 7 July 2013. For those unable to make the Oyster Festival or even those unable to wait until July, the Twankey Champagne and Oyster Bar at Taj Cape Town serves the freshest and most comprehensive range of oysters to be found outside of the festival.
Oysters from all over the coast of Southern Africa are served with fresh seafood tapas and a variety of tasting options at Twankey Bar. Capetonians and visitors can enjoy oysters from Alexander Bay, Knysna, Luderitz, Paternoster, St Helena Bay and Walvis Bay as well as wild and West Coast Oysters. The popular Twankey Teaser is an especially adventurers way to experience different taste sensations as Guinness and Bloody Mary shots join the oyster drink roster alongside Champagne and Cap Classique.
