2 for 1 at Shaka Zulu Restaurant

Shaka Zulu is an iconic restaurant, bar and club bringing a taste of Africa to the heart of London. Based over two floors, Shaka Zulu combines some of the culinary specialities of South Africa in its magnificent Braai restaurant.

The food of South Africa is often referred to as 'rainbow cuisine' because its dishes originated and are influenced by such a wide variety of multicultural sources, from the indigenous Zulu and Sotho speaking people of South Africa to immigrants from Cape Malay, Malaysia and Java.

Specialising in delicious home-made biltong, pickled fish as well as some authentic dishes like bredie, bobotie, sosaties and of course the famous boerewors sausage but to name a few, we also serve the finest steaks and seafood in London.

For more adventurous diners and ex pats wanting a little piece of home, we also serve all types of game meat from Zebra, Ostrich, Springbok and Kudu straight from the spit or Braai.

Important Information

Please note: Sushi dishes are not included in the tastecard offer. A maximum of 2 people will be accepted per taste booking. Your card can be used up until 6.30pm on Friday and Saturdays.

The service from staff was excellent - they by no means treated us any differently for having a Tastecard; in fact, they went out of their way to ensure we were taken care of when we had a query about how their offer worked. The food was really delicious (the chicken wings were amazing, and we really enjoyed our first taste of biltong). All in all a lovely evening. "

    " Absolutely shocking service and treatment of customers. The taste card was treated with contempt and we were literally stuffed into a broken table under the escalator in an almost empty restaurant and completely ignored by the staff. The food was bland and the cutlery and water jugs were filthy. The bathroom was crawling with biohazardous waste and the queing system was ridiculous. The decor was dusty and the staff uniforms were untidy. Need I say more? "

We were waiting for 45 minutes and food was quite cold. Our Romantic anniversary ended up between noisy company of strangers with long time waiting for the food.I was looking for romantic and more private atmosphere. "

    " Had dinner this evening 20/05/2017 at Shaka Zulu. Was very excited as we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It did not start off great as our table was booked for 7pm we waited in the line to be advised that we now had to wait in the waiting area to be seated, 15mins wait, till I went back to the reservation desk to ask when we would be getting seated as It's been 15 mins, to which she said straight away.

    Being taken to our table the glass wear was extremely dirty, I asked the lady who seated us to.change the glass, but instead of saying not a problem or sorry she inspected the glass. I regret now not taking a photo of the glasses.

    We waited to be served and a lovely lady came over, she took our first drinks order. We were then approached by a man who we ordered all our food, we asked for bread while we waited for our starter this did not arrive.

    Starters we exceptional could not fault it, when our main arrive the Steak was cooked to perfection the chips were crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle, the bernaise sauce was to die for, all of that was let down by the cinnamon butternut squash that was cold and the time it took to be brought back out was far too long as I had nearly finished my main. Dessert disappointing as I found a hair under the cream which was on top of the Milktart. I sent this back and got another.

    As this was my first experience to Dhaka Zulu and after hearing from friends how great it was, unfortunately it's left a bad taste and I would not recommend it in a hurry.

    I honestly believe that the whole entrance setup needs to be looked at and changed as the way it operates now is not fit for purpose. "

    Awful service. A two course meal took over two hours. The cocktails are lovely. The food is ok. Not worth the price even with the discount! Definitely worth paying a visit for a drink definitely not for a meal. It was unpersonal, elongated, a bit boring and we had to constantly ask for service - including paying the bill!! To top it all off, when paying (after a 15 minute wait) the waiter added on £4 on TOP of the service charge for no reason! Would not recommend this place to anyone for food. "

    The venue is absolutely beautiful but doesn't have an African feel to it in terms of the atmosphere. The food was good (I had a zebra steak) but the straw potatoes aren't the best idea or the easiest to manage with a fork. And the sides are definitely overpriced. Enjoyed it overall but I wouldn't be coming back without a discount. Far too expensive for what it is. "

    We really enjoyed our meal at Shaka Zulu from when your walk on the restaurant is very clean and well decorated in a ornate African theme but it was unfortunately let down by slow drinks service.
    When the hostess seated us we asked for some tap water; again when we ordered our food we asked the waitress for water along with our other drinks. The drinks eventually turned up after our starter but no water, we asked the waiter who brought our food again and this time he did bring over a jug of water to our table.
    Our mains were delicious, we both had steak (zebra and beef rump) both were cooked as we ordered, a side of salad was all we needed between us. We ordered another drink from the waitress whilst we were eating but again this took far too long to arrive. Dessert was very tasty and well presented. The prices are fairly expensive but you do get good food and reasonable sized portions. We enjoyed our meal, there was a great selection of more unusual items to choose from and will go back in the future. Using the taste card was easy we just said we had one when booking and on arrival. "

    " Had dinner this evening 20/05/2017 at Shaka Zulu. Was very excited as we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It did not start off great as our table was booked for 7pm we waited in the line to be advised that we now had to wait in the waiting area to be seated, 15mins wait, till I went back to the reservation desk to ask when we would be getting seated as It's been 15 mins, to which she said straight away.

    Being taken to our table the glass wear was extremely dirty, I asked the lady who seated us to.change the glass, but instead of saying not a problem or sorry she inspected the glass. I regret now not taking a photo of the glasses.

    We waited to be served and a lovely lady came over, she took our first drinks order. We were then approached by a man who we ordered all our food, we asked for bread while we waited for our starter this did not arrive.

    Starters we exceptional could not fault it, when our main arrive the Steak was cooked to perfection the chips were crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle, the bernaise sauce was to die for, all of that was let down by the cinnamon butternut squash that was cold and the time it took to be brought back out was far too long as I had nearly finished my main. Dessert disappointing as I found a hair under the cream which was on top of the Milktart. I sent this back and got another.

    As this was my first experience to Dhaka Zulu and after hearing from friends how great it was, unfortunately it's left a bad taste and I would not recommend it in a hurry.

    I honestly believe that the whole entrance setup needs to be looked at and changed as the way it operates now is not fit for purpose. "

    Awful service. A two course meal took over two hours. The cocktails are lovely. The food is ok. Not worth the price even with the discount! Definitely worth paying a visit for a drink definitely not for a meal. It was unpersonal, elongated, a bit boring and we had to constantly ask for service - including paying the bill!! To top it all off, when paying (after a 15 minute wait) the waiter added on £4 on TOP of the service charge for no reason! Would not recommend this place to anyone for food. "

  • Paulina said: "Nice but not as nice as I hoped
    The venue is absolutely beautiful but doesn't have an African feel to it in terms of the atmosphere. The food was good (I had a zebra steak) but the straw potatoes aren't the best idea or the easiest to manage with a fork. And the sides are definitely overpriced. Enjoyed it overall but I wouldn't be coming back without a discount. Far too expensive for what it is. "

  • Richard said: "Great food but service was disappointing
    We really enjoyed our meal at Shaka Zulu from when your walk on the restaurant is very clean and well decorated in a ornate African theme but it was unfortunately let down by slow drinks service.
    When the hostess seated us we asked for some tap water; again when we ordered our food we asked the waitress for water along with our other drinks. The drinks eventually turned up after our starter but no water, we asked the waiter who brought our food again and this time he did bring over a jug of water to our table.
    Our mains were delicious, we both had steak (zebra and beef rump) both were cooked as we ordered, a side of salad was all we needed between us. We ordered another drink from the waitress whilst we were eating but again this took far too long to arrive. Dessert was very tasty and well presented. The prices are fairly expensive but you do get good food and reasonable sized portions. We enjoyed our meal, there was a great selection of more unusual items to choose from and will go back in the future. Using the taste card was easy we just said we had one when booking and on arrival. "

    Food was at best less than average. Slightly Warm, boring, tasteless and average. This place looked good but lacked quality. With the taste card the bill came to £140 for two people. I can honestly say I would have had a better meal at a weather's pools. terrible place for food wouldn't ea:-) "

    Superbly decorated very warm atmosphere, large variety of drinks. The let down was the food, although beautifully presented it was rather plain & dry. Would go back for drinks only. "

    10/10. Staff, ambiance, food. You pay for what you get and our dishes were spot on. Sharing platter and a main course and shared dessert. Drinks were costly but fab. Will be back with the boys to take up their Happy Hour offer of 5 beers in a bucket for a tender, "

    The food was absolutely delicious across the board. It was a bit pricey and the decor sits on the fine line between amazingly epic and incredibly tacky but with the tastecard I would definitely come again. The decor was still a novel and impressive experience "
