I went to Rock Sushi Thai with my wife and daughter on Sunday evening. It was an absolute disaster. From the beginning the service was terrible, they didn't have most of the beers that were on the menu. When we eventually got drinks we immediately ordered food, but despite asking repeatedly we still did not have food an hour and... More

For a place with Sushi and Thai in the name, neither of them were great. Had better Thai and better sushi elsewhere. They were good, but not outstanding. Best positive for me was the green curry which we asked for medium and was exactly what I'd call a medium; not too hot but with a little bit of a kick,... More

I have eaten here before, but it seems to get busier each time I go. On this occasion I simply wanted a sushi takeaway. No problem. It was ready in 10-15 mins (made to order) and I was offered a complimentary glass of wine whilst I waited. Excellent sushi and excellent service. I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly.

There are lots of starter to choose from, the servings are small but no problems you can order more platters this way you can taste varius sushi dishes, the price and service are good, Quiet ambient situated on a corner street.

This place is really bad, don't go here. Sushi is stodgy and heavy, tuna is gray in colour and clearly not fresh, dim sum is pre-made frozen, beef in curry was chewy.

Had been here for sushi before, which was OK but not amazing. Discovered that their Thai food is a better menu option, all five people in our party had different dishes and all were great.

The dim sum was a disaster but the main meals were delicious. Definitely worth trying if you are in the area and feeling for Thai!

Description
Rock Sushi (THAI) began in the picturesque fishing village of Hermanus in 2004, when owner of the Harbour Rock Restaurant, Francois Barnard, decided to expand the repertoire of his highly successful seaside restaurant. A Master Sushi chef was headhunted, and alterations on a new kitchen within the building began. Thai Cuisine has always been known for its clean, fresh flavours. Beautifully fragrant ingredients like ginger, lemongrass and coriander give Thai cuisine its distinct and unique flavour, loved by people the world over. Rock (SUSHI) Thai is an embodiment of this mantra.
