Went here for my birthday. Nice restaurant with African theme. Staff very friendly and helpful. Now as for food yes it was tasty but u don't really get much for your money so ur left feeling hungry afterwords. They didn't have springbok and substituted it for venison instead which was a disappointment tbh. All in all yeah worth a visit... More

We had a fantastic night at Jabula. The food was exotic, delicious and made with real care - the staff were keen to explain each dish or meat and were clearly immensely proud of what they were serving, and justifiably so. In fact the service was so friendly and attentive all night, it really felt like a personal touch. I... More

Fantastic service and friendliness of staff is a great fillip when you've traveled a long way.The choice of food is amazing - ostrich, crocodile and fish I've never heard of all served with a variety of veg. The wine is of great quality including the house wine. Great prices and well worth it. A bit difficult to find so make... More

Jabula is a restaurant with very interesting menu, delicious food, quirky African decor, comfortable lively ambiance and great staff who play the bongos drums. Prices are very reasonable for food of such high quality. We both had the Game Platter-there's also a non-game platter and a veggie platter if you don't fancy crocodile or springbok etc, but I would recommend... More

Ate here last night with friends using a Living Social voucher & had a fantastic meal. Food included crocodile, zebra, springbok to name a few, everything was beautifully presented & tasted delicious. It was a great way of trying what's normally on offer. Can't wait to go back

That was one of the most interesting dinners i've ever had, and it was really delicious. I took the dish called "Game Africa", so i tried zebra, ostrich, crocodile and some african deer (i can't remember the proper name of the animal... ;) ). Except for the ostrich, all of them were new to me, really interesting experience. African beer... More
