GOOD LOCATION. GOOD FOOD. AVERAGE SERVICE

Excellent location in Movie Towne. Usually well subscribed and can be a bit noisy at times as it also hosts a bar. The service can be a bit 'touch and go'. Depends very much upon who is your server it seems.

Zanzibar is a "happening" kind of place. It is not your quiet, cozy, romantic two-some hideaway, but rather, a place of noise, fun and the business of life. You can't miss the large flat TV screens strategically placed throughout the establishment, each with its own gazebo of distracting action. The hosts at your table are prompt, helpful and polite... they... More

Zanzibar restaurant has always been a favorite of mine...Ilove the ambbience and of course the food. It is very popular so if you choose to visit on the weekends particularly friday and saturday nights, it may take around 10 mins for you and your guest to be seated.Therefore go early in the evening for dinner. The food is very tasty...for... More

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.
