The menu draws influence from Southern Africa & the flavour profiles originate from Mauritius, Namibia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe as well as SA. It features Braai’d meats, fish, & hearty veg Ostrich, 28 Day aged Steak & Swordfish but also an array of fragrant potjies, which for the English palette rival all our of heartiest, wholesome stews and favourite “Friday night” curries.

We had a fantastic evening. The restaurant had a great atmosphere but was perfectly set up for social distancing. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely.

Our waitress was wonderful she was knowledgable and helpful. The food was nice but I had to send the steak back as I was unable to cut it to eat. This was sorted immediately by the waitress and I am sure the chief. The next one was fine but wish I had gone for something different. My wife enjoyed her dish. All in all a pleasurable night out but didn't make us go Wow apart from the service that was a definite Wow. She made the difference from a 'disappointing meal' to a 'good meal'

We had a lunch booking on a Sunday and were the only couple in the restaurant for a while so had great service! Food is great at Zim, we’ve been to the Bournemouth venue and loved it there too. Both will be on our list to return to and the staff are always knowledgeable about the menu and can give recommendations if it’s your first time.

I had a lovely meal but my partner had the burger which he didn’t like and unfortunately made him quite poorly for the rest of the evening.

Blimey, I didn’t think I wasn’t expecting such great food. I had the salmon and prawn curry which is amazing. Looking forward to returning soon.

We really enjoyed our evening meal at Zim braai. The restaurant was busy and full of atmosphere but the service was still good. The servers offered suggestions from the menu and were happy to engage with us. The food was tasty and well presented as were the cocktails. I would definitely return
