Very generous portions. Food was well presented and very tasty. Good value for the price. Only problem is the location. Terrible lack of parking in the area.

We are old customers and followed the restaurant from burnaby. Had reservations for 10 people, got there the owner was throwing major attitude as to why we had extra people, grabbed a 2 seated table and gave away to someone else. That was just the beginning!! We requested for ribs dinner and he told his staff not to give it... More

Simba's is a cozy space that feels family run, which you will likely see as the owner has been present every time I have visited the restaurant. Kurshid tends to take orders and gives suggestions to new comers as the menu is sure to have dishes you have never heard of. We tried new dishes every time we visited but... More

Please list this in VANCOUVER !, not Burnaby as this is quite far away and in a hard to reach part of Vancouver! Please keep Burnaby listings as such.

If you are on Denman Street (or are looking for a reason to go) make sure you stop at Simbas Grill. An amazing fusion of African and South Asian tastes. Guaranteed to make you never look at food the same way again. If you like butter chicken (you know you do) then try the chicken Surwa... Your taste buds will... More

Visited the place with my friend and loved the atmosphere and food. Reminded me of home cooking. Love the spicy ribs and their kuky choma. Enjoyed the fact that on Saturday, there was a live singer and helped make the atmosphere and decor more lively and entertaining. Looking forward to coming back again on a Saturday.

We had no idea of what to expect when we ate at Simba's Grill on Denman but it was very enjoyable. Other reviews were right--large helpings--we had the mixed grill for two and had take-home for the next day. The food was just spicy enough. We met both the owner and his wife, most hospitable people. We will certainly return... More

Our host at Rosella Suites said he could recommend most of the eateries on nearby Denman street for lunch, so we set out to window shop. We travel to Africa several times a year and very much like sampling the food offerings, so Simba's caught my eye. Usually, we pick ethnic food places based on the crowd- is it full,... More

Went to the location on Denman last night with a friend of mine. Ordered from Kurshid, the man himself who was friendly and accessible. We went to order three dishes but he was so kind as to tell us that it would be too much! I asked for the dishes to be spicy, so rather than making the dishes too... More
