The Test Kitchen hosts inventive, nouvelle Latin cuisine with a South African touch. With food based on popular global dishes with South African ingredients and twists, the Test Kitchen has two intimate dining areas – one “dark”, one “light”. The journey begins in The Dark Room, an intimate space with low seating and small tables – where aperitifs are served in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. The mood is mysterious and seductive with its low lighting and wood-clad walls. The Dark Room is where you want to lower your voice, breathe deeply and focus on food and conversation. Just when you’ve taken the last sip of your num-num and rose-infused cocktail, guests are ushered in to experience the next leg of the journey in the Light Room, a more formal setting where the rest of the show unfolds. Guests enjoy the remainder of the beautifully plated tasting menu in a more formal setting. All in all, the Test Kitchen provides an intimate, unintimidating interior where the atmosphere and energy are generated from its beating heart – the open kitchen, infusing a warm buzz that provides comfort in a classy setting with food to delight.
