This place is truly amazing. The food is fantastic (even if you do not think crocodile is your cup of tea), the place really cool, and the service second to none. Even the children's menu is good! Thoroughly recommended, and resasonable prized too. What more can one ask for?

Just enjoyed an excellent Mothers Day lunch at Jabula. We have visited the restaurant several times over the years and have never been disappointed. The menu has a good choice and having tried quite a few dishes now, have found them all superb. The service is friendly, helpful and efficient. Birthdays are always entertaining with the Bushtucker trials!! Thoroughly recommend the place.

We visited in Feb and had the most wonderful fun filled night! There were 10 of us all together and all of the stunning food was delivered without a hitch. They overheard a party member could not eat dairy and bent over backwards to ensure her meal was dairy free, even down to the sauces. Most of the group ordered the 'Game Platters' for £20pp and we were not disappointed, we were however all stuffed!!! The food was amazing and really really well presented. Once our meal was over, they encouraged small groups of us to have bongo lessons - it was so much fun! then they did a 'bush tucker' challenge with an unsuspecting party member- again, cannot be faulted. All of their servers were knowlegable and beyond helpful. Hats off to Anne-Marie, what a fantastic venue you have created. WE WILL BE BACK!!! Best wishes, Susanne (Arco.)

I recently came here with a table of 10 for my boyfriends birthday, I've been to Africa before (south Africa) and the atmosphere here felt much like there. The restaurant has a laid back feel with traditional music. I liked the service from each waitress/waiter they were very smiley and helpful. We went on a Friday and the African drummers came In and got some Of us up to dance! This made our night and we couldnt stop laughing! The entertainment and food combined were great I would definately go again!!!
