Brimming with vibrant African character, Shaka Zulu is an iconic restaurant, bar and club in Camden Town. Set over 2 magnificent floors, Shaka Zulu provides a glamorous tribal setting for authentic South African specialities.

Delicious offerings on the Shaka Zulu menu include homemade biltong and pickled fish, whilst there’s an adventurous range of game meats such as zebra and ostrich fillets, buffalo ribeye and springbok loin. Crocodile steak with harissa and lemongrass keeps company with traditional recipes like Cape Malay-spiced beef ‘bobotie' and tasty boerewors sausages with wilted spinach and sheba sauce.

The spectacular space of Shaka Zulu in London is decorated with ornately carved 60-foot murals, marble bars and a tranquil water garden. Its trendy Kings Club creates a lively post-meal buzz, serving innovative Zulu cocktails over an eye-catching zebra-print bar.

Live evenings at Shaka Zulu include exclusive performances from international artists like Mica Paris and Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Camden Town Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    I booked a table through book a table and when I arrived at the restaurant they had not received the booking from the website, luckily they were still able to accommodate us. However it has left me reluctant to book tables through the website.
    The restaurant was fabulous! We had a fantastic meal and the atmosphere was great with the bonus of a live singer whilst we are!
    The food was lovely and catered for myself who is gluten intolerant.

    Fabulous food and decor, but service from staff was very poor and service charge is added to your bill and isn't optional. Therefore, I was EXTREMELY disappointed with the service we received.

  • ((((( 29 October 2016 by Mohan Yogendran from London

    The restaurant had a good vibe. Busy but not so busy that service suffered. Food was good from the special London restaurant festival offer, and we were able to enjoy the bar as well as our table.
