“Great food and service but very noisy patrons”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The food at Zanzibar was fabulous. The kitchen is well managed. The service was great. The decor is lovely. However, it is not a place for an intimate dinner for two. The noise level of other patrons limited my ability to hear the person I was with. I will return to eat but fine dining requires the ability to at least carry on a conversation. Zanzibar is in a great location on Shaker Square.

“Customer Service”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The food was very tasty, however the service was bad, I think the crew need to go to customer service classes, the man that greet you at the door even had an attitude and i dont need that when I m spending my money.

“Excellent Soul food”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

They serve fantastic soul food. If you have never had soul food, try it. It is truly fabulous, and the quality here is comparable if you are invited to someone's house to eat. This is not the typical stand where the quality is suspect. Forget counting calories and try this! You will love it.

“Good Food”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I ordered the Philly Steak Sandwhich. When I asked for steak sauce I was told that they don't have steak sauce. The company that I was with had to ask the waiter to bring out the coffee three times before it was brought out. Overall, the food was good however, the service needs improvement. The seating is close to the other patrons if you want to have a "private" conversation.

“Soulfully delicious!”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

Words can't describe this meal. We were visiting from New Jersey and have never had better food. The moistest cornbread ever, southern chicken egg rolls, fried chicken and catfish, macaroni and cheese, shrimp and grits and sweet potatoes were among the dishes we tried. One dish was better than the next and we rolled out! Can't wait to visit again.
