About Zim Braai Bournemouth
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.
The food was amazing, however we were rushed off our table after only 1hr and 10 minutes being there and given a 20 minute warning and then another warning 10 minutes later. There was no indication when booking or in the confirmation that there was a time limit on the table. After paying nearly £90 it felt like we were pushed out and that the restaurant was keen for the next paying customers to come in.
Really good meal, waitress was really nice
The food was delicious and the service was great.
Excellent as always
Great night out 👍🏻
We so enjoyed our dinner at Zim Braai. We had the Oxtail Potjie and the Morrocan lamb tagine - as we are from South Africa, this was a real nostalgic experience. Highly recommend Zim Braai. The staff were also super friendly and took all necessary precautions so we felt safe throughout our meal.
Excellent evening thank you
Great welcome on arrival. Quick service and excellent food. We will come again. Thanks
Great food, great service. Always nice to have something a little different.
Great to se you open in these difficult times creating a welcoming and safe environment, super service and really great food.
Lovely restaurant with great food and nice heaters and cover for outdoor eating
Perfect for a special occasion!!
Amazing service, fantastic food, would wholeheartedly recommend!!
Fantastic food, great service, couldn't ask for more.
The oxtail was amazing. Only thing that let it down was the sadza was far too soft and a bit salty. Everything else was perfect!
Had a great night! Lovely food, friendly service. Can't wait for our next visit, when hopefully I won't be drinking and can try some of the fabulous cocktails!
My friends and I had an excellent lunch and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects. The staff are great, with just the right amount of attention, helpfulness and friendliness. Having to sit outside, we were a bit concerned about the road noise, but once seated we hardly noticed it. Blankets are provided in case you feel cold, and umbrella shades and a canopy can be erected in case of rain. The food is deliciously different, and I loved the flavour the braai gave to my aubergine and halloumi dish. Also, there is something for everyone, be it meat, fish or veggie. I shall definitely return, probably with a meat-eater in tow next time as my partner was very tempted when I told him about it, and I've already recommended it to others!
Probably one of the best birthday meals I’ve ever had! Was such a lovely evening, Will was amazing!! Thanks so much! :)
Amazing food , drinks and service cannot fault !
Lovely service and amazing food! Highly recommend
Delicious food and wonderful service 👏🏻🙌🏼
Excellent meal friendly staff nice decor and atmosphere definitely will be returning
Had an amazing day out with the girls on Saturday. One of them hadn't been before and super impressed with the food and staff. I tried the new Tuna dish on the menu and it was excellent. I am finding it harder and harder to choose my favourite dish now!
As always, we were provided with amazing service by such pleasant staff members, very attentive and helpful when deciding what to pick. We have tried many items on the menu and they are always so delicious! The atmosphere was amazing with a live DJ really setting a great vibe, just the perfect volume to allow you to chat to your table but also to really make you remember what a luxury it is to be dining out again. Honestly we cannot fault the whole experience at Zim and we will most definitely be returning many more times. Thank you
Incredibly accommodating, food was insanely good as well as the cocktails..... ALL of them!! Staff couldn't have been more attentive and friendly. Honestly couldn't recommend this place more! 11/10 in all areas!!!!
