People tend to check in during these times:
Psst! You can still ask for the mac and cheese with your filet!
Filet with Mac and Cheese is outstanding
Reservations mean nothing. Expect to wait the same as anyone else that walks up.
Must go there, best eating in the Animal Kingdom!
Be sure to check out the flatbreads. All are fantastic but the lamb and blue cheese is amazing!
Asked for Mary via michael's tip. She was the best! All food was great. Best disney resort too. Also saw regis philbin
the white Cheddar macaroni is no longer standard with the filet. but if you ask for it they will male it just for you! Excellent restaurant.
Flank steak flatbread is delish
Try Tastes of Africa curry samples with naan... simply gorgeus!
Ask to sit at The Cooking Place (counter where they prepare all of the flat beards and other appetizers).
Best food at Disney. Wild boar appetizer is great, and the Lake Victoria perch is delicious. They made us a special dessert because we were on our honeymoon :).
Ask for Mary. Best waitress ever.
The short ribs were fantastic. They also were great about allergies!
The food was fabulous! Our waiter, Ron, made excellent recommendations! If you get the chance, definitely go!
Great wine tasting tasting
Hey y'all... Jeff is the new "Mary." He's fantastic.
Try Jiko Taste of Africa
Try the Egyption Kushari - #vegetarian a bit spicy. A new favorite (via @Foodspotting)
Avocado soup! Weird, strangely delicious, And well worth trying. Get one for the table to try!
Don't pass up the Taste of Africa. Also... I almost died from how good this food was.
This is by far the BEST dining experience we have ever had at the WDW resort. If you're into shrimp, try the Grilled Wild Gulf Shrimp Curry and for steak lovers, the Oak-grilled Filet is outstanding!
The food is amazing. Try the bobatie appetizer. Yum!
All of the entrees are over sauced, leaving tje star off the plate lost. The duck breast has a great sear, braided beef comes with a yummy side of truffle potatoes.
Split a Taste of Africa with someone special.
Try to get a seat at The Cooking Bar. (Can't be reserved.) Meet and talk with some of the chefs. Very cool.
Haven't tried one thing that I didn't love. Wasn't sure what to expect now I know I have to come back
Highly recommended. Wasn't sure at first but was blown away. The filet with Mac & Cheese is AMAZING
There are not enough good words to describe this place. If you have the opportunity to go, GO.
The flatbread is the bizzle
Awesome food and service! Try the Taste of Africa apps!
Loved the taster risotto, the tandoori butter and the rest of the meal was delicious. Kay our server was so helpful.
Try stopping in even if you can't get a reservation. Well worth the time and money!
Monkfish is amazing.
You can order appetizers from the bar!
Absolutely phenomenal! Request Oscar from NY as your server. Tastes of Africa is a great Appetizer. The Filet medium rare is amazing and the cheesecake is amazing. Worth 2 dining plan credits for sure
Not as good as it was hyped up to be. Wouldn't go back unless I was staying at the AKL.
For the money there are far better places to eat than Jiko. The filet I got was so-so, I have made better filets myself with Ohmaha Steaks. For a far more reasonable place to eat in AKL try Sana.
Overpriced. Food is so so. And service is appalling. Serve you the entrée before taking your appetizers plate.... never again.
Every trip we make to WDW includes an evening (or two) at Jiko! The food and service are always excellent! Make reservations WELL in advance.
Really amazing food!
Jiko is excellent! As of September 2012, Filet with macaloni and cheese is not printed on the menu. But ask a cast for it. I could order that one.
Make sure you order a flat bread they are unique and just the way to get your palate ready for great combinations of flavor to come. Can't go wrong with the shrimp or filet. Never been disappointed
Try the Key Lime Creme Brulee - A nice mélange of two old favorites (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Kid's Fruit Plate - #vegetarian Great palate cleanser (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Cheese Plate - Always a winner. Especially the Pleasant Ridge Reserve. Made with Wisconsin raw milk (via @Foodspotting)
Try the goat cheese flat bread. It makes a great appetizer.
If you are celebrating, let them know! They included a nice hand-signed birthday card in our menu and a petit creme brûlée at dessert.
