We loved our experience at Shaka Zulu. Everyone (including our 11 and 13 year old children) thought the food was delicious. The staff were extremely kind and their service was great too. We were so happy that we tried "something different."

Went to the restaurant with my fiancée on late sunday evening. We took the whole communal menu, and weren't disappointed: it was very nice to find new tastes in high quality. Recommended if you visit Cologne.

My wife and i walked in last night. Only waited five minutes for a table. We're not familiar with South African food, but really enjoyed the tastes and mild spiciness. The food is served as tapas, and you pick how many you want up front....More

Really nice atmosphere, nice food with a "Communal Eating" concept to share all the dishes. All the dishes are reasonably priced and they do have some exotic cocktails to try. The service is good, flexible and fast. It really feels like a short trip to...More
