“Brilliant little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Since my husband retired 7 years ago we have been to Mauritius 5 times. we found this little place on our first visit and have made a point of going there on each of our visits. The food is delicious especially the Biryani (I cant get enough of it). The welcome is very friendly, the service is very good and the cost reasonable. so they do not sell alcohol, who wants alcohol with every meal? Eat your wonderful meal and then pop up the road for your alcohol. I cannot fault the service or food that we have always received at the Zub. We are going to Mauritius again in January 2015 and we will be visiting the Zub once again.

“Charmless with OK food and no alcohol”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

I don't know how this got to No 1, and the pictures in no way reflect our experience. The austere room with bare white lights create a stark and charmless setting. While everything looked clean, there was no attention to decor and, unlike the photos, we did not see one white cloth napkin. My curry was very tasty, but the serving a little small and my husband's prawns were large, but deep fried and overcooked. The food is all Halal and no alcohol is served, which is not mentioned in the glowing reviews. The service was attentive but we waited a long time for the rice that accompanied the curry. There we no accompaniments served with the curry.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We went for a lunch to this restaurant on our first day of holiday in Flic en Flac and after great food and fabulous service we decided to go there at least for one meal a day as we would have also tried other restaurants in other parts of Mauritius or even in Flic en Flac, but we couldnt find so delicious food for such a good price anywhere else. The manager and staff were very friendly, would try to chat to my parents even though they dont speak any English or French and the manager would also advise us where to go for excursion. When I told him how much one travel agent in town centre wanted to charge us for a day trip to the South, he just couldnt believe that somebody wanted to rip us off so much. He offered us a driver with a car or to rent a car for a reasonable price and we drove ourselves around the island. The manager also takes feedback onboard very well, after asking my husband how he liked the lunch, my husband replied that it could be improved by a wider range of vegetables and since then every time we went there and my husband ordered his meal he would have a wider range of vegetables. Thank you very much for your delicious meals, your advice and help!

“Great food and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We spent a week in Mauritius staying in Flic-n-Flac. A friend raved about this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We ate here twice in three days. The food is excellent and the prices are low, especially when compared to resort food and drink prices. The manager is a gregarious gentlemen who loves to welcome patrons. Service is attentive, inside is clean, and the overhead electric fans keep it cool.
