24 Napier St.
Cape Town , South Africa

The red-brick façade, green shutter doors, and tall casement windows say old Cape Town, but inside this Green Point restaurant, the sights, sounds, and aromas evoke Istanbul. Red faux-finish walls are decorated with traditional kilim weavings, brightly painted ceramic dishes, embossed copper platters, and beaded jewelry, while gathered fabric and clusters of colored-glass lanterns hang from the ceiling. The menu includes Turkish classics such as stuffed grape leaves, lamb kebabs, and baklava, paired with creative cocktails like the Turkish Delight, made with rum, gin, cranberry, and rose essence.
