We had a great time at Zanzibar. Really good authentic African and Jamaican cuisine and great value. We even had a bongo jam after our meal, how many restaurants can you do that in? Overall a really good night. Would definitely recommend!

Overall, our experience of Zanzibar was positive. Tasty food with plenty of variety. We had two starters, three mains and two sides, which was more than enough for us (however the coconut chicken dish, which is more expensive, was much bigger than they other dishes, which were more tapas size, so bear that size in mind when ordering. Try the... More

Went on a groupon with the family. Only other table in before us and none others for at least half an hour. Waited over an hour for the starter and 40 minutes or so for the mains. Had to constantly request the drinks we had ordered. The waitress did not have a clue and the manager/chef seems to do everything--from... More

A lot of the reviews on here focus on the fact that the service is slow. Well it is a bit. Let's get that out of the way. Having recently returned from a year living in Uganda and Zanzibar I guess I was used to this! Anyway, the extra time gave us a good opportunity to spend some time chatting... More

We went to this restaurant with a Groupon deal. We were very very disappointed. The waitress struggled with our drinks order (taking a long time to bring tap water and the complimentary cocktails) The waitress said the cocktail was lime daqurie but was strawberry. The real low point was serving a vegetarian soup with meat in it & then when... More

My daughter booked us in on a Groupon and like a previous review we waited about 20 minutes for drinks and one hour ten minutes for starters (we were then one of only two tables occupied) One of the starters was wrong and the correct order was processed in less than 10 minutes- why then did it take so long...

Absolutely everything was terrible. Waited 1 hour for our drinks which were wrong. Starter took an hour and a half and the veg choice had meat in it. Another hour for the main but then the sides didn't come for another 15. The waitress knew nothing about the ingredients and wasn't prepared to find out about some of the meals... More

Turned up for our booked meal booked via tastecard. We were barely acknowledged and sat in a tiny cramped table near the window. We ordered our food and my partner went to the toilet.. The toilet was that disgusting he refused to eat his meal and we paid the bill and left having not eaten anything!! Highly disappointed!
