Awara – A restaurant which combines Indian, Korean, Thai, Japanese and Chinese flavours to bring you the best in Asian cuisine.
Awara now occupies the same space that the famed Bukhara did for the last 25 years, a space which overlooks the site of Church Street’s quaint open-air day market. The new Asian restaurant was born out of a desire to invigorate Bukhara and add a more modernised flair to its gourmet Indian dining experience, the team behind Awara has curated a new menu that includes a variety of Asian grilled tapas alongside the finely prepared classic curries the Mother City adores.
The new menu covers Indian, Korean, Thai, Japanese and Chinese flavours that are grilled on open-flame charcoal grills and in traditional Indian clay tandoori ovens, allowing guests to choose between modern creations like slow-cooked Teriyaki Octopus and Fish Tikka, comfort classics like Butter Chicken and Lal Maas, or a combination of both. There is an extensive wine and cocktail selection, selected to complement the dishes, and seven classic deserts like Cheesecake and Chocolate Fondant.
In parallel to the menu makeover, Awara has also had an interior decor revamp. The previously open plan area has been transformed into a cosier space with more private seating options and a lounge area.
The Awara team is looking forward to welcoming guests to the rebranded eatery for its signature selection of fusion tapas. In addition, the venue offers weekday brunch and cocktail sessions, and on Sundays and Mondays, there is a special 3-course menu for two.
Awara is located at 33 Church Street, Cape Town City Centre, and is open from Monday to Sunday, between 11h00 to 23h00.
