The Chefs at Asoka are lovers of sharp flavours, fragrant herbs and rich spices, designing their dishes around the 5 elements: Earth(vegetarian), Water (seafood), Wind (chicken & duck), Fire (meat) and Nirvana (dessert). This combination creates a unique and varied taste experience with influences from international cuisines and cultures.
Around the legendary Olive tree in the city bowl, the famous Asoka unfurls. For over a decade, Asoka has been the gem of Kloof Street, a sensual experience where the music is intoxicating and the energy is palpable. The restaurant tantalises patrons with nights of culinary and rhythmic indulgence, thriving on the journey of a night – from food to cocktails and late nights under the skylight. Transformed from a twentieth-century house, Asoka is a restaurant and bar where leisure meets mystique in the glow of the candlelight, a playground of celebration and the home of the city’s most seductive house music.
