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.
Join us for dinner at Asoka, the ultimate hidden gem of Kloof Street, and embark on an entire sensory journey. Asoka is the ultimate meeting place where conversations are bound by music, food and a legendary Olive tree.
An old Victorian home with shutters and traditional sash windows cordially welcomes you upon your arrival. As you enter through the glass door you’re wooed by a visual masterpiece, accentuated with Eastern ornamentation.
