The Touraco Table caters for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike, specialising in authentic World food, be it French, Indian, Thai, Moroccan, Persian, Italian or South African, among others.

The menus on offer vary monthly, affording returning patrons greater choice. The menu format consists mostly of at least three starters, four to six mains, one or two side dishes, and four or more desserts to choose from.

While Laurent, the man behind the flavours, ensures that every dish is made with love and authenticity, his partner Angus ensures that patrons delight in the restaurant's warm and artistic ambiance, and undergo the best dining experience. The walls of the Restaurant are adorned with various artworks – a collection of paintings, objects, ceramics, lights and sculpted matter made of mixed media – which are meant to initiate conversations and debates among patrons, within and across tables.

The Touraco Table prides itself on offering the most extraordinary view from its intimate terrace, where day patrons can enjoy light lunches while watching a flight of turacos.

The Restaurant is not licensed and patrons can bring their own alcoholic beverages, while still having access to a range of cold drinks, teas, coffees and infused waters.
