Located in the regenerated Old Biscuit Mill area in Woodstock, Cape Town, The Test Kitchen space is distinctly industrial.  Its brick walls and exposed ducts and pipes create an interesting, exposed atmosphere and the open plan kitchen gives guests an opportunity to directly engage with the workings of the kitchen and food preparation, particularly for those seated at the wooden bar which wraps around the kitchen.  With a small dining room seating just 65, guests will be tantalised by the delicious smells coming from the area!

Luke Dale-Roberts’ The Test Kitchen opened in November 2010.  In 2013, The Test Kitchen made an impressive leap from No. 74 in 2012 to No. 61 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and today in 2016, is impressively at No. 22!

Says Luke Dale-Roberts about the food, “The Test Kitchen is serious, fun. Our food is free to roam in whichever direction. If there is no immediate smile as we create a new dish then we are on the wrong track.  I want guests to be surprised and delighted, to wonder what ingredients we have used and how we made it. It should be an adventure!” – Luke Dale-Roberts, Chef and Owner, The Test Kitchen
