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.

    Worst dinning experience ever. Am surprised this place is still opened. The food was terrible, service was terrible and the waiters clueless. Do not waste your money.

    The venue is amazing, very special atmosphere, although we were told that only the top floor is open to clients on a weekday. The ground floor is open at the weekend when there are more people. We had a 3 course dinner from a set menu. It was nice but not exceptional and a bit pricey to order extras like side dishes. The fish and the baby chicken were lovely. I'd go back for drinks only next time, just to soak up the atmosphere.

    The venue it’s self was nice, mood lighting and strong smell on insense when we arrived. Service was average. Food and drink very expensive for what it was. £90 a head I expected a lot more.

    Great night. Good service. Great flaming cocktail at the end. Good food too - not hugeness portions but more than enough. Interesting menu. Decor is fab. Getting through on the phone to book the evening was terrible though. They don't pick up.

    It was not what I expected. The restaurant itself was beautiful, the staff? Absolutely disappointed. The girl at the front was extremely rude, the service was so slow it got to the point were I had to get up and go find staff with the menu in my hand so I can at least go to them to order the food. it was my birthday and I hate the fact that I had to go to the staff to ask for something instead of them coming to ask us if we need anything. The food was cold and dry. It was just not a fun day at all and to be honest I regret it so much. I will definitely not recommend it to anyone at all.

    Me and my family can't wait for a second visit, the staff were great the decor is amazing and the steak was gorgeous.

    It is a very nice environment. Most of my group had vouchers and we were told we would have to just have the voucher menu. I wanted to have the a la carte menu as the items I wanted to eat were not on the voucher menu. This was a disappointment to me. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and we were not rushed. It is slightly hidden by all the stalls of the market and some of my group had difficulty finding it.
