5 Star Taj
Friendly staff with good service, especially Clinton. Truly an ambassador for this Group and nothing too much of a hassle to ensure client satisfaction. Will definitely be back and will recommend the Taj to anyone out there that wants to experience top 5 star service and attention. The Bombay Brassiere is definitely one of the best restaurants in Cape Town!
