FoodBlog - Cape Town Restaurants: Mesopotamia Kurdish Restaurant

Welcome to Cape Town’s first Kurdish restaurant: Mesopotamia. It is situated on Long Street just opposite Addis in Cape an Ethiopian restaurant (also worth checking out).
When going to Mesopotamia, you can share in a selection of meze and order dishes prepared on a traditional tandoori wood fire. You don’t sit on chairs but on kilim cushions and dine around antique copper tables. And of course, no shoes allowed!  Their food is also Halaal! It gives you the ambience and hospitality of Mesopotamia – one of the world’s greatest civilizations. While eating, you can also enjoy live acts by Kurdish folksingers and enchanting belly dancers.
After dinner you can relax with a hookah pipe or a cigar and listen to the cultural music in their lounge upstairs – the shisha lounge. This is very common in restaurants and cafes in the Middle East. And this tradition is also custom at Mesopotamia.
You can also hire the restaurants for functions like birthdays, weddings or business meetings.
