Walking into Shaks Zulu is a bit like being on the set of Indiana Jones but the great decor can sadly not make up for the exorbitant prices charged for the very poor quality of wine and service. We were there for drinks so I cannot comment on the food but the party we were joining did eat but the meal was very delayed (by about 2 hours). We also found it funny that they should sell Cambodian beer when it is a restaurant championing South African culture and cuisine.
The venue appears to be an upmarket place but after a certain time(i think 11pm) they can only give you plastic cups and wine is decanted into a plastic carafes which is not in-keeping with the venue's decor and prices charged.
The staff are also rude with the managament in particular not caring about the overall customer experience nor about championing a return visit.
London is packed with novelty restaurants and bars and I would whole heartedly recommend going somewhere else.
