Lovely experience and creative menu. Plating was a little fussy and ambiance a little loud but very good flavours.

About The Test Kitchen Fledgelings

Cuisine: International

TTK Fledgelings isn’t about fine dining. Instead, we’re a space for inspiring plates, bold flavours and delicious dishes.
To discover his latest trend-setting tasting menu creations, head over to our sister-restaurant Salon for Luke’s multi-layered culinary journey.
Here at TTK Fledgelings? We’re more into wonderful food without too many frills. Bon appétit!

We’re a restaurant.
We’re a training ground.
We’re a place where dreams come true.
We’re TTK Fledgelings.
In the elegant space once home to award-winning restaurant The Test Kitchen, TTK Fledgelings was founded with a simple goal: to offer those with no access to formal chef’s or guest service training – but boundless passion and determination – the opportunity to carve out a career in the hospitality.

With a focus on in-service training, under the mentorship of restaurateur Luke Dale Roberts and Head Chef Nathan Clarke, our ‘Fledgelings’ learn the trade while working. Similarly, the front-of-house staff are coached to host guests by mentors who work alongside them. Each Fledgeling is employed full-time while receiving invaluable on-the-job training.

Our hope is for the Fledgelings to hone their skills at the coalface of a professional restaurant, whether it’s behind the pass or out on the floor. It’s a long process – a slow simmer, not a rapid boil – but by the end, we are proud to produce seasoned chefs and talented service staff.

So come and join us at TTK Fledgelings, where dreams are cooked up alongside some of the best food Cape Town has to offer. Look forward to a delicious adventure of elevated yet approachable cuisine, made with love and plated with passion.
