I have been to Shaka Zulu on several occasions and it's interior is visually spectacular and (if only for that reason alone) it's an impressive looking place to take a first date.
I have been to dinner twice and the menu (although a bit pricey) has some interesting food items such as crocodile cigars (made from real croc meat!)

They also serve more mainstream fare such as steaks and barbeque.
On my last however I made the mistake of ordering cocktails.

They start at £11 (which is probably standard price) but I couldnt taste a drop of alcohol in mine, I tried my dates(as she had ordered something ddifferent) and it was just the same - totally watery and seemed to mainly consist of nothing but a pile of ice cubes!

I felt a bit put out and went back to the bar to the barman to recommend something which I could actually taste. He gave me two more (both different) cocktails and guess what? They were exactly the same! Totally flavourless!

I have previously had a couple of nice evenings here but felt slightly cheated by the poor quality cocktails and will go to Cottons across the road next time.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback following your recent visit to Shaka Zulu.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal, but are saddened to hear that the cocktails fell below your expectations. We are very proud of the cocktails created by our bar staff and this is not something that we tend to receive negative feedback on. Please accept our apologies on this matter and we are confident that this would not be the case if you were to come for cocktails in the future.

We hope that you will choose to revisit Shaka Zulu again soon, and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Upon arriving at Shaka Zulu your eyes are treated to a plethora of interesting ceiling and wall coverings. One of the most impressive of these is the rear wall with the elephant carvings. The lighting is subdued throughout the restaurant which adds to a really nice ambience. Furniture is heavy and deeply upholstered making for a very comfortable dining experience.

We got a mean voucher as an anniversary gift and were quite pleased with our choice. The deal was for a three-course meal with cocktail. We had the smoked salmon to start which was absolutely delicious and the steak for a main with several sides. The service was prompt and friendly and food arrived at the table very quickly (although it was a Wednesday evening which seemed fairly quiet). My only issue with the food was that it could have been a little hotter (temperature).

Cost of the meal for two was approx. £75. We would definitely return to Shaka Zulu.
