Played it safe and had a burger but was sorely disappointed. The burger came out cold, complained and instead of replacing the burger, they warmed it up. No problem but the burger was horrible, could have bought

I was invited to try this seafood soup that comes in a loaf of bread and it did not disappoint! The soup itself was good, although a little bit too salty for my taste. The bread however was very soft but still a bit crispy on the outside. Once I had finished my soup, a took bits off the bread... More

Service is excellent, friendly and fast. The menu is varied, and what I've had was excellent - ribs, and seafood. There's a seafood pineapple boat that was one of the best dishes I have ever had. Portions are huge, American style. Drinks are reasonable. Decor is sports lounge. Prices are comparably reasonable. I'll be going back.

Beware the huge starters; you'll not have room for a main course! A very large menu to choose from and pleasant outdoor ambience.

The food and staff are always so good and as a vegetarian it's always a chore to find a restaurant that doesn't serve bland boring seafood. I love zanzibar and I dine here often with my family and friends. I love the smoothies too they are the best. Your staff always make us feel so warm and that by extension... More

I couldn't resist to try the seafood version to a Caesar's Salad. I'm not a fan of Movie Towne but this restaurant in particular marks the difference.

The food choices were vast and we all enjoyed our chosen meals which were excellent - great aroma, amazing presentation and fabulous tasting food. Because this was such a good experience, we now...

The food is great. I have been there at least seven times. Most Saturday nights there is live entertainment outdoor, which I enjoy. A couple of my friends from school days got together for dinning and enjoying the show. The atmosphere is relaxing. The service was a bit slow but the restuarant was rather busy. Will recommend.

PROS Spacious CONS Staff at door did not greet us or seat us, they simply pointed in the general direction of the tables and handed us menus. The wait for a server was incredibly long. So long that we got up to leave and still no one approached even though there were all of 10 customers inside at the time.... More
