A hidden gem of a restaurant tucked by the ship canal. The staff are friendly, attentive and worked hard as it was busy but there were no delays in the food arriving. Excellent menu choice to suits all tastes from 'normal' food to South African dishes which are a must to try. The prices are very reasonable for what you... More

We visited Jabula using a groupon offer and the restaraunt was busy despite it being a Tuesday evening. The groupon deal gave us the opportunity to sample the variety of food on offer here. The food did not disappoint. The meat dishes consisted of a mixture of game and chicken. All the dishes were delicious, full of colour and were... More

We called in by chance today, the setting is lovely the staff were very friendly, fun and knowledgable about the menu. Our meals were just beautiful, enormous portion, I didn't think I could manage it all but it was so good I couldn't leave it. The atmosphere was great too. Defiantly recommend : )

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant after being recommended by a friend. The menu included a selection of different South African dishes. The service was friendly upon arrival and we were seated and asked if we'd like a drink very quickly. Through the meal we could see entertainment through the restaurant and it was very nice to be I.... More

My partner and I have just had a wonderful lunchtime taster platter of African cuisine comprising of a mixed starter. 3 main dishes and 2 desert dishes. The portions were just right for a taster and the flavours and presentation were faultless. The restaurant was spotless and the staff so friendly. We couldn't eat all the main course's up so...

Myself and my partner visited jabula to try their platters of "traditional African food". The starter platter consisted of a mushroom stuffed with philadelphia topped with red Leicester , a prawn cocktail, a goats cheese volauvant, a meatball and a tiny piece of crocodile on a piece of garlic bread. Other than the crocodile meat it wasn't exactly authentic south... More

My wife and I called in last Thursday (14th May) to celebrate our anniversary. We had booked through Groupon but the service we received could not have been better even if we had been paying full price. The food was flawless and being on the exotic side it was helpful each dish came with a brief description from the friendly... More

The food at this restaurant is really tasty but the service massively lets it down! We purchased a voucher through Groupon & rang up to book a table for a Saturday night. The booking was accepted but then the following day they called back saying there was a misprint on the voucher & Saturday nights were not part of the... More
