Zulu is located in the Best Western Zebra Motel in Coffs Harbour. We had no idea it was an African cuisine based restaurant. The servers are very helpful in explaining the menu and making suggestions. The food was very good. If you are interested in trying something different, Zulu would be a god choice.

Don't be put off by the fact that this place is in a motel, and that you have to wait awkwardly in the bar before being seated.... it is all worth it. We ate there last night with a Ugandan friend who lives in Sydney and she said it is the best African food she has eaten in Australia. We ordered the African Banquet for 4 people and got a wonderful variety of meat including goat, beef (amazing!) and two types of chicken. It also included 8 sides in the banquet, which offered a wonderful variety and generous serving sizes. The service was fantastic and the staff are really lovely. There was too much to choose from on the menu, so we will be back to try it all out. 10/10!

We are so glad you enjoyed the banquet! It truly is the most thorough way to try out our menu. I'm also glad you saw our unique flavors as authentic... it's leads credit to the hard work of our very aussie chef, who has dedicated a lot to creating something u cannot find anywhere else... can't wait for your return!

We dined this week at Zulu when we were passing through Coffs Harbour. We were walking around looking for a restaurant and found this one and the sign "award winning" drew us inside. I have to say we have never tried African inspired food before so this was a first for us. The restaurant decor is great and the staff were amazing but it is the food that was fabulous and will draw us back again on our next trip south, it was fresh, amazingly tasty with perfect spice, large serves and incredible flavours. thanks guys for a great meal we have been telling everyone here about how great you are and we wish you well, highly recommended.

We went to Zulus and it was great. We got whipped up some awesome cocktails from the exquisite range of infused vodkas. Our food was great. So spicey that I was suffering, but that's what I live for. Had the crickets for desert, living on the edge. X style. Awesome dining experience.
would defiantly recommend it to any one that is looking for a general fun night out and something different

Yes it is true... should u enjoy to suffer the effects of Chilli we can make you suffer... we would like to mention with 6 varieties of Chilli paste available suffering is not a necessity.
Also in the case of Mr X we also have a self proclaimed RSC ... The responsible service of Chilli. .. we truly will try and talk everyone down! But like Mr x said... if u like the burn... we can burn you ;-)
