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.
Ostrich steak was very good.
Amazing food. Can't wait to go again. Such a shame with the current restrictions as it's all a bit rushed, but totally understandable. The ostrich steak is amazing.
Waitress was a lovely girl but not able to tell us about the flavours in some of the dishes as she had not tried them. No fault from her but would help recommendations and the customer’s decision.
Excellent food and great service
We really enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. The staff were excellent and so was the food. We will return again soon.
Really delicious, everything was perfect from food to drink
Absolutely loved it! Will 100% book it again
First time here at Zim Braai and we had a great night, Mauritian riz frit and Zimbabwean Dovi were amazing, will definitely be back
Differentiation online between sites as we have not yet visited Bmth site but online only gave poole option.
Such a great Covid safe environment! We felt very safe on arrival, with Test & Trace, sanitiser freely available, and social distancing well organised. A very well run outfit indeed. The rest of my ratings speak for themselves. 5 star venue all day long!
Rating of 3 for atmosphere is due to limitations of Covid. Prices little on the high side. We enjoyed our experience and will be returning.
Fantastic meal, and service is great too, we will be back and I would recommend to anyone to visit. Flavours are amazing
This was a celebration two couples' ruby wedding anniversaries. zim braai gave us bubbly to kick off the evening in style and we all really enjoyed our meals, the staff were unobtrusive, the service was prompt and efficient.
Lovely food as always, partners burger was underdone but sorted and bill reduced, thank you, we will be back.
Amazin, will be back agian. Food was incredible 😋
The food, service and choice of drinks were just fantastic and truly authentic. Cannot wait to go back!
So nice to go to a restaurant with a totally different menu. Spoilt for choice.
I absolutely LOVE your prawns and Chilli Broccoli, My Mum LOVES the Butternut curry and I LOVE the Babootie. The Cucumber and Melon tonic is refreshing. Your dividers are Ornate Thankyou
The food was delicious as usual and the service first class. Thoroughly enjoyable.
First visit here on our wedding anniversary. Had a delicious meal and the complimentary Prosecco to wish us a Happy Anniversary was a lovely and very welcome touch. Great menu and some really interesting dishes - the broccoli with chilli was to die for! Will definitely be back.
A lovely restaurant serving amazing food. Have already recommended to friends and will return shortly.
Lovely food and lovely service would definitely go again
Short staffed, but otherwise, very good.
Great food, great service, good atmosphere considering COVID restrictions. Nice to try a different cuisine for once
