About Zim Braai Poole
Zim Braai is a fresh, innovative, & wholesome Southern African dining concept.
The Braai, plays a fundamental role within the restaurant, the moment you enter Zim you’re greeted with the tantalising, smokey scent of wood fire. 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.
Lovely evening out, definitely will book again.
Absolutely gorgeous meal and fantastic service. It was the nicest meal we have had out in a long time. We will certainly be back
A wonderful atmosphere even amidst COVID regulations ! Delicious food/drink also
Perfect service. Great staff. Lovely evening.
The food and service was excellent.
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.
We both had an excellent evening and the food was great. The service was very good and felt they had created a safe environment
Great food but disappointing the new food shown on Instagram was unavailable
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'
Excellent, varied menu, very gf friendly, lovely food, terrific atmosphere and service. Would definitely recommend!
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.
Really pleased to see Zim open during this tough period, processes and staff all working well and the food as lovely as ever.
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.
Great food and atmosphere.
Great food and service would definitely recommend to everyone.
An excellent evening, thank you all especially Charlotte
Incredible service and great food :)
The food and service was amazing! We had the ribs, ostrich steak, and chicken skewers, all delicious!
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.
Great meal, lovely atmosphere.
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
Always great to see Andy. He adds so much to the experience. Fab staff too.
