RECREATING AFRICAN CUISINE
Dumela and welcome to Kubu, the gateway to great African dining, Nestled at the heart of Waterfront, with picturesque views of Table Mountain and Lions head, Tranquil blue waters of the Atlantic ocean located at the old V&A Waterfront PowerStation.
We operate a cutting edge gourmet cuisine, combing unrelenting creativity and a remarkable craftsmanship with supreme knowledge of local produce. At Kubu, dinners are served exquisite blends of vibrant flavours all constructed to express the knowledge of African ingredients. Our search for ingredients means forage among the fields of Franchhoek and stretching as far as Congo for the purest possible flavour. We aim to heighten the philosophy of seasonal and locally sourced ingredients to an unprecedented level and in doing so we will create utterly delicious cuisine.
Our cuisine inspiration comes from the rich history of Africa and its ancestral influences. Over time we have developed methods of eating produce at its finest and have also used prehistoric preparation methods such as fermenting produce to create a new authentic dimension of Umami flavours and also methods of preserving food.
Kubu is an inspiring restaurant that was born from our passion of all things African, combining a menu selection that’s broad and bold, eclectic market atmosphere with African decor and excellent and interesting food. The mission is to have not only a great food selection that Cape town can offer, but also efficient and superior service since customer satisfaction is our paramount objective. We are open 7 days a week for lunch and early diner (10:00 – 19:00). Kubu is the restaurant of choice for a mature and adult crowd, couples and singles, young and old, male or female.
