    The interior is amazing, but the service is extremely slow. I got Sunday lunch with roast lamb, the meat was very chewy and full of fat and the waitress just amazed me with her questions.

    Unique African decor and gourmet meals. Expensive but you pay for the high quality meals and experience.

    Can't speak for what it's like in the day time but it's pretty amazing at night, £15 entry fee after 22.30 though.

    You could get lost in this place. You can go for food or for a drink. Not cheap so unless you have the money, plan another venue for later.

    Springbok and ostrich were amazing! Zebra was a bit chewy but that's expected. We had 50% off, otherwise it's quite overpriced. Nice decor and good for large groups

    Stylish and amazing ambiance. Food is hit and miss, drinks pricey if not happy hour. But go if you want a night of good music & dancing into the early hours of the morning.

    Shaka Zulu was ok at best. Food was ok too. We got moved along from our table shortly after eating as it all descended into a strange multistory club. Good for a lads night...

    There's nothing authentic about this OTT, South African themed bar, it's as real as Las Vegas. Expensive and underwheming. Avoid.

    Interesting place, but just far too big to be taken seriously. The foods not bad but a little overpriced and service is a tad lazy. Good for a cool cocktail on a bar crawl though.

    The ostrich carpaccio is amazing but the ostrich from the Braai section is to die for!! Don't go there when is too busy as you will wait a bit more and service won't be as good and personal.

    Shaka Zulu cost a terrifying £5.5 million, but most of the dishes are as bland and underwhelming as the surroundings are bananas. Metro gave it 2 out of 5 Stars. Read more

    Shaka Zulu will offer diners a taste of Africa right in the middle of Camden. Dishes include Seared Ostrich, Marinated Springbok & Kangaroo Lamb. The best bit is that everything will be done outdoors. Read more
