Tasty spicy authentic African food in Sheffield. Wide variety of food on menu available. Child friendly restaurant. Reasonable prices. Good transport links and parking available on side streets.

If you don't like what I have to say then make improvements,don't throw your toys out of the pram. God will... More

Born and raised in Zimbabwe, and fortunate enough to have travelled extensively throughout Africa, EVERY time I come here, I feel like I've come home! From the music, the atmosphere, the staff to the food (WOW!). I leave fulled with enough African passion and sadza in my belly to face the rains of Sheffield once more. See you there next... More

Bought an Amazon Local voucher and visited early on a Friday evening. The menu is not extensive but that's possibly no bad thing. The owner was very charming and friendly. We ordered the garlic bread and chicken wings to start. For mains my partner had the curried goat and I had jerk chicken. We ordered rice to accompany. My partner... More

We went last night with some friends who had a voucher. The total bill at the end was £83, so just over £20 each. That included 4 cocktails and 2 bottles of red wine so you can't fault the value for money aspect. The service was a little slow, but we were in no rush and when the food came,... More

My partner and I were looking to buy an Amazon voucher for Zanzibar which offers a 2 course meal and free cocktail for two people for £15. The deal is available 7 days a week and because it was a Saturday we thought it wise to ring beforehand and check that we would be able to use the voucher the... More

The food was tasty and plentiful and value for money, I will be going back there again. Only downside was lack of professionalism it felt like we were in his home and had to wait ages for him to finish phone calls. He was very friendly though.

The exotic and inviting name indicating a relaxed atmosphere could not be further from the truth. The rudest and most unprofessional people i have ever met. The managers aggressive and rude behavior is only topped by the disappointing food which doesn't even deserve mention. If you want an enjoyable night out with reasonable food then for the love of god... More
