This is a place where you have to go when being in Cologne. Its offers great food for both meat eaters and vegetarians, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Each plate offers different flavour and texture and a great experience for those who never had Afrikan food before. Also the dessert is a must to try.

Wow! A must try! We were 5 Israelis who are extremely opinionated about food, 2 out of 5 are vegetarian and wow was this good. Different flavors and spices and we loved it. Everything was cooked exceptionally. Thanks trip advisor for helping us find this wonderful place. FYI this isn't a fancy place, this is a fun experience for all!

Service here was very good and on detection of our poor German language skills the waiters all fluidly switched to English which we very much appreciated. The food was fantastically tasty and well portioned. A lovely experience.

I stayed in Cologne for trade fair. Usually I trust TripAdvisor recommendations, this time, it was a huge mistake: the entire menu consists of fried "food"! Service personal was superficially friendly but way too busy. I waited for an entire hour to be completely disappointed. The place looks unique but the seats are rather uncomfortable. Definitely not recommended!

Who put us on 2nd? Just in case that isnt clear, (probably due to the fact that you do not seem to have much TripAdvisor experience) it was the 343 visitors who have enjoyed their evening in Shaka Zulu. We are sorry we couldn't fulfill your expectations, but as the saying goes: "You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time"
