The restaurant had a good vibe. Busy but not so busy that service suffered. Food was good from the special London restaurant festival offer, and we were able to enjoy the bar as well as our table.

I booked a table through book a table and when I arrived at the restaurant they had not received the booking from the website, luckily they were still able to accommodate us. However it has left me reluctant to book tables through the website.
The restaurant was fabulous! We had a fantastic meal and the atmosphere was great with the bonus of a live singer whilst we are!
The food was lovely and catered for myself who is gluten intolerant.

Fabulous food and decor, but service from staff was very poor and service charge is added to your bill and isn't optional. Therefore, I was EXTREMELY disappointed with the service we received.

Incredible interior and great food with terrific service! A pity that on weekdays there is no African dance show as this is a pretty expensive place to dine.

Very unique choice on menu. Had a 3 course meal, my partner & I decided to be VERY brave and try the game meat Crocodile & Zebra. The dish was tasty although I thought the Zebra portion size was small for the price of £30 and then an additional £5 for a side dish. Starter chicken wings, desert passion fruit cheesecake both also tasty. Friendly staff with a great atmosphere live singer who also took requests.

I had a lovely dining experience, the whole atmosphere was remarkable. They have beautiful art work all around to admire while you wait for your food with soft afrobeats music playing on the background. Amazing settings.

Our waitress delivered a lovely service with a smile, who turned out to have the same name as me! Extraordinary!

And the food and wine. . Delicious! Absolutely satisfying in every way and extremely filling. I give Shaka Zulu 10 out of 10! Definitely recommend ????
