Zanzibar is the place to hang out. Great food, the best cocktails and my fav.....the seating at the bar. With all the neon lights infused into the counter itself Zanzibar is a hub of energy and good vibes. The best Trini lime. I don't go anywhere else. It's safe and ur always guaranteed to have a great time. Try the... More

As the title states, the food portions were amazing for the price. I ordered a pasta and got an entire bowl which was mainly sauced with the cheese but still very tasty. It was one that I had to share and yet it could not eat the entire thing out (I eat very small portions). The restaurant is conveniently located... More

When it comes to food and drinks, it's usually a hit or a miss. I have had the hog wings and they were amazing...and on return they were meh...one night drinks (cocktails) were amazing and flavorful and strong....next time...juice and ice. It's a popular spot mainly because the surrounding trader jacks is a hot mess. So it can be very... More

The food here is always great and I am never disappointed... I have always had good service even on their busy days but this weekend was terrible. I went with some family that was visiting from the U.S. and after giving so much positive and good review on the place the service was terrible that night. We got there about... More

The food was good here. Service was a bit slow but i guess because the place was a bit busy. The waitress not that pleasant.Nice atmosphere, beers were cold. Would go again.

Our cousin lime turned into a waiting game, besides us there were only two other couples ... So not a busy night yet it took over an hour for our food. The food itself is very good, lots of flavour but it is slightly pricey than most other places with similar menus. The general service needs some attention... Or maybe... More
