Right…i said i wasn’t gonna explain what the Best Of Cape Town 2012 project was all about anymore and if you don’t know then click HERE to find out. So far i’ve completed several polls of the best Cape Town has to offer using only social media platforms to compile top 10 lists for best sushi, best coffee, best burger etc. The response has been great and last week i asked you fine folks who made the best Chinese food in Cape Town and although the total number of nominations wasn’t as high as previous polls some interesting facts emerged. Most notably..there wasn’t a clear favourite and in fact there was initially a tie as to the number 1 Chinese food place. Did a quick tie-breaker poll and the winner turned out to be Mr Chan in Sea Point. Interestingly the place that came second, Monk’s Chinese Food, doesn’t even have a restaurant…they only deliver.
The other unsurpising fact was that there are a lot of Chinese restaurants with many getting only a single vote.
Right…not gonna blah blah anymore. Here’s the results for Top 10 Best places in Cape Town to get Chinese Food.
- Mr Chan – 178 Main Road, Sea Point, 021 439 2239
- Monk’s Chinese Food – delivery only to the City Bowl and surrounds, 021 4249162
- Chef Pons – 12 Mill Street, Gardens, 021 465 5846
- Doyu – 85 Main Road, Fountain Square, Rondebosch, 021 685 1888
- Chuck Yang’s – 93 Campground Road, Rondebosch, 021 689 7967

It’s worth noting that restaurants 6,7,8,9 and 10 all recieved the same number of votes so they are in no particular order. Happy my local, Xiang Yuan, made the list. Other venues that didn’t make the list but were nominated include Bamboo, Erawan,Haiku, Hau Lien, Tai Chung.
Another obvious fact is that the Rondebosch, Newlands, Claremont area seems to have a good concentration of good Chinese restaurants.
So what do you reckon? Did you favourite make the list? Are you happy with the top spot?
