Staying locally in leafy Pontcanna, we came upon the Zanzibar lounge and booked a table for 8PM and spent a couple of hours exploring the area. The night we chose was a bit of a noisy one with a table of 16 (we had already been told that there was a large group in when we booked- appreciated this). Got our order in before the big group and found the food arrived quickly- 2 different starters and 2 different mains and all were interesting and tasty. Staff very friendly and efficient. Large portions and sensible prices, so what's not to like here. Plenty of fish on the menu. Desserts looked good but too full to try any. Highly recommend

We had two weekday evening meals at this restaurant. As the weather was very hot the first thing we really appreciated was the air-conditioning. Our food (vegetable soup and fish) from the early bird menu was delicious and very good value. All the staff were charming, friendly and efficient. Recommended.

We visited Zanzibar for the first time & were definitely impressed with both the food & the service. The meals were freshly cooked & were served hot with a large selection of seasonal veg. The staff were helpful & explained the specials. We will certainly be back & will book next time as I think we were lucky to get a table on a Saturday night - it was extremely busy.!
