“Regular customer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Jungle braai is delicious! I am one of their regular customers wether it's eating in or takeout, I think they are starting up which explains the small restaurant but it's comfortable in there. Absolutely love the complimentary olives for starters! Steak, chicken, rice, chips, sausages are all yummy. Each time I have been there the food is freshly cooked, sometimes they take a tad bit long but hey at least I know my food is being cooked fresh! The only problem is payment they need to start taking card payment. The service is lovely, the gentleman are so polite and respectful and last but not least fantastic price!

“Tasty and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had a nice lunch with my family and their lunch time deal is really good. You can also request the waiter/ chef how spicy you want your marinate to be on your meat.

The outlay of the restaurant is quiet small and need updating but overall the service was good.

Definitely going back in the near future.

“Good location, extensive menu, not bad but could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Decided to go to this place as it apparently serves different cuisine than the rest of brick lane.

Good location, as soon as you walk into brick lane.

Nice enough inside, decent service.

A lot of interesting things on the menu. I can remember ordering a prawn cocktail for starters which wasn't great and some burger for mains. This was ok, but a bit adventurous and maybe they guys in the back were a bit out of their depth when it comes to exotic cuisine and preparation.

They seem to be trying something new and original, but can't seem to hit all the right spots just yet.

Would give it another try, just to try out some other stuff on the menu. Worth going for something different, as it is reasonably priced.

“Food and service hits the spot!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Food was absolutely delicious, chops were big, saucy, succulent and spicy (compared to tayyabs were they seem to be rapidly shrinking in size). Jungle salad has to be one of the tastiest chicken-salad combos anywhere and the peri chicken was excellent as well; T-bone steaks were also on point. The sauce used on the food in jungle braai is heavenly and definitely elevates the place above a lot of the other grill joints.
Despite being busy service was excellent and that makes a pleasant change as the service in a lot of these places generally leave a lot to be desired.
