We visited on Saturday we asked for the biltong selection they didn’t have any? Asked for the selection of bread was very basic. We ordered the smoked salmon starter was just salad and salmon. Had steak for main and was lovely! Had pepper corn sauce. Over all wasn’t as amazing as we had been told. Was a shame as we was so looking forward to it. Maybe it was just an off day!

Our waitress Monica was outstanding.
She was very friendly and nothing was too much hassle.
The food too exceeded our expectations and the guys dressed up as lions was a brilliant touch too.
The only negative I would give is that we ate rather early (7pm) and the DJ music was very loud - to the point where we basically needed to shout to speak. I think that would be a great add on for a later setting but maybe turn it down a notch or two for the earlier diners. However saying this I will 100% be visiting again!

Had a Virgin Experience meal for two but price was bumped up by having to pay for sides and menu was limited. Don't expect to pay for sides with s main course. Other than that the overall experience was good.

Food was good, sometimes it was a bit loud but it worked well with the theme of the restaurant. The cocktails weren't amazing. Overall, nice experience but incredibly overpriced.

We went there because we saw the deal with 4 different type of meat for the price of 75£ when we got to the table instead they have changed this to 3 type of meat for 80£ and on top of that they didn’t have most of the exotic meat that I wished to try, wouldn’t go back

Great tasting food and the Shield deal (via virgin experience) was absolutely worth it! We had a three course meal and a cocktail! The service was also impeccable (also helped that it was a Sunday afternoon and was quiet).

It was a pleasant experience. The food was good and the service adequate. It wasn’t wow!, but we had a pleasant evening. The Covid thing and minimum customer rule probably diminishes the vibe

I’ll be honest, it wasn’t fantastic. I understand it was their 2nd day after 3/4 months and with very strict regulations due to C-19 but I was so excited to come here for dinner and it totally disappointed me. The service was extremely slow, 25 minutes to even be acknowledged by our waiter? Food was quick, but my buffalo was so tough I couldn’t eat it. After our mains we waited 30-35 minutes to be cleared, I could see our deserts being brought over and the runner realising the mains were still on the table. By this time, none of us were looking forward to our deserts so we tasted and that was about it. I was really disappointed, I could see the staff working hard and I don’t doubt they were overwhelmed but having been working in a restaurant for many years, customer service is key and today that wasn’t in Shaka Zulu.
