Trainee chef Kyle was on duty at lunchtime, a very pleasant young man but he should have been supervised. Asked if there was fresh line fish he disappeared for a few minutes & returned with the answer only one portion but he failed to find out what fish it was. Two of us ordered duck which was too small a... More

I am truly sorry that your dining experience was not up to standard. I have dealt with the parties concerned, and apologise for us seriously dropping the ball. Unfortunately Kyle is indeed a trainee, and I have not showed him this review for his own sake as he would be really gutted and it would profit him little to stress... More

Its a little pricey for the quality of food. The chef was also drunk as a skunk when he came out to ask about the food. Not a problem to me, as i was packing away the drinks too, but its maybe not very professional - for this reason, i will not rate this as a family friendly restaurant I... More

Hi Jessie Thank you for your review... However I am a bit concerned about this drunk chef that you mention that 'he came out', as all my chefs are female.... only my front of house manager is male. I would really appreciate you making contact with me via email on shaunsmith@fusioncooking.co.za. many thanks. shaun More

My husband wanted to go somewhere a bit different for his birthday last night, and Fusion is really the only place in Durban that can't be categorized into any "standard" cuisine. The food is interesting and just a bit more exciting than the usual popular places. We started with some tapas, delicious although I thought they were a little too... More

One-of-a-kind restaurant, wish there were more of them in Durban! Unusual dishes (dishwasher fillet / colour-changing soup / ice cream frozen at your table with liquid nitrogen), diverse flavour combinations, and all extremely delicious. An excellent restaurant and well worth a visit!

Sorry to hear Fusion was not to your liking - we usually receive many rave reviews as we are well known for our friendly service, good wines and excellent food. With regards to the steak - although we would not recommend a WELL DONE steak, it's a pity you didn't ask the waiter to send it back to be cooked... More

SO I tried the dishwasher steak! Yes you read that correctly. They slow cook a steak sealed in a bag, inside a dishwashing machine. It was amazing.

We had a very wonderfully gratifying experience at Fusion. The service was impeccable. The food was exiting, creatively fusing different cuisines. The mussels where to die for. The wine list had some of our favourites. The nitrogen ice cream to the malva pudding was wonderful and even the coffee great quality. Thanks this was value for money and something awesomely...

Nestled between Café 1999 and Unity in the Silvervause complex is a little gem that if you haven’t visited it is time you did. I had often heard and scoffed about the cooking being done in dishwashers, electric blankets and other strange devices but had never experienced them first hand. Being one to believe in the stance of ‘don’t criticise... More
