This weekly Wednesday night bookings-only pop-up restaurant on the covered patio of a Upper Houghton mansion is overseen by the vivacious Su-Yen Thornhill of Scottish-Chinese extraction. After securing a booking online (you can contact Su-Yen by phone or via her facebook page, we advise you book well in advance as dinners can sell out quickly), arrive at Su-Yen's home by the time appointed and get ready for a fun night out with a multi-course Asian-influenced tasting menu of between eight and ten courses.

The menu is different every time (inspired by available seasonal ingredients picked up locally or according to popular holidays such as Thai songkran) and everything you will taste is homemade that evening including the excellent hoisin sauce that you will want to pour over every morsel. If you are the curious sort try book a seat by the kitchen counter and watch chef Su-Yen in action. Thornhill’s dishes are beautifully plated and each dish is to be relished. Menu standouts when we visited were the chicken and egg drop sweetcorn soup, shitake and shimeji mushrooms with lotus root greens and sesame-crusted seared tuna with daikon radish and pickled ginger.

Dinner costs R500 per person and is strictly by prior booking only. Bring your own drinks. Every Wednesday from 19:00-22:00.
