For an authentic taste of Cape Malay food, head to Biesmiellah's for samosas, potato half moons and chilli bites, followed by meat-in-spicy-sauce mains like lamb denningvleis or mild chicken kalya.

Since wine is traditionally taboo, accompany the spicy dishes with a glass of rose-flavoured falooda - a drink made of rose syrup with vermicelli and tapioca.

No alcohol is allowed in this halaal establishment.

Open:
Monday - Saturday 10:30 - 23:00

Bismillahs is a genuine food institution for the best of the cape. Food is authentic Malay, not watered down versions. The kalya and Breyani was the best Ive had in a long time. Atmosphere of the restuarant was enchanting ! It is in hub of Bo kaap.

we had a wonderful dinner at Biesmiellah and - coming from Germany - the price for the food was incredibly cheap. I had a very tasty boboti and can highly recommend it. The service was very individual and super friendly. The interiour is a bit steril, but food and service were excellent.
