“Ethnic touches can't substitute for lack of hot good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Not hugely inspiring, don't eat outside the food gets cold in millliseconds. It was OK but not"Wow" enough to promote a return visit

“Nice location... but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Moyo Zoolake is really set in the most wonderful location, very relaxed and perfect for a relaxed lunch or a romantic dinner. That said, Moyo really needs to spend some time re-inventing their menu. One of the reasons my last visit was in April 2012 is that I got tired of seeing the same old selection of dishes on the menu. Also, it's not great value for money when I compare the price of the food to the quality. So, great location and atmosphere but average food and service.

“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I just love Moyo Zoolake. The venue is stunning, being able to sit outside under the trees. Very restfull to sit and watch the world go buy. The food is always good.

“Bad service bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Service was atrocious, and I was served a plate of couscous with 3 beans in it as my main. Horribly overpriced. I won't go again.
