Had a table booked last night, and arrived only to find the restaurant had shut down. The place was locked up, with a notice from the Landlord saying they had reclaimed the property on 13/4/15 and nobody could enter the premises without their permission. There was clearly time to let us know the situation so we could have made alternative... More

Me and my boyfriend went in once on a whim after seeing the quirky design and interior. Since then, we go nearly every week. The food is delicious, it's worth getting a soup to start as they are flavoursome and full of meat and veg, great value. We've tried most things off the menu and we've never been let down.... More

Our first visit here, and we really enjoyed it. The food was cooked to order and very tasty, but be prepared to wait for it coming. Can recommend the chicken soup in particular - it was intensely flavoursome, the best I have ever had. As a party of 6 we had a variety of mains & sides: all were beautifully... More

Dropped in for a quick meal and can't forgive myself for not coming here more often. Was seated and made the order for the food and drink I wanted. The daquiri is amazing, had one before the food came and one after. Food was delicious and very filling. Come on an empty stomach! Would definitely recommend to eat here.

I liked the look of the place, always one to pick a small restaurant over a chain I decided to treat my family to something a bit different after a long hospital visit in Sheffield. It is certainly different at zanzibar. So the restaurant itself is quirky, I like quirky! What I dont like is taking my child to the... More

We visited again with 2 friends. We all agreed that the food was excellent as was the service from the owner. We always go using a voucher, but have always been made to feel welcome. We will continue to use and would recommend to all. The meal can take a while due to cooked fresh to order - but worth... More

We went for a meal expecting great food and service. The waitress didn't know any of the menu or options. They only had one cocktail available. The food was shocking. Ordered chicken wings- they were ok. Then ordered mutton. The rice was dry and looked burnt. The meat was chewy and overdone. Not pleasant at all.
