  • Who says no to giant pizza?? The place is vibey, music a little too loud for conversations but great for an afternoon with friends.

  • Guests were ignored as entered. Seating area was only outside and had very dirty uneven floor tiles. Too many flies. Very very bad service. We had to go inside and look for help when wanting to be seated, then to get menu's and later to get the bill. Food was OK not worth ever going again

  • What divine food. I had one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. It was amazing! The cocktails are divine. A very chilled place.

  • What started out as a fantastic evening with good friends, good food, great cocktails and even better ambience - despite the persisting rain - was dismally ruined by a waitress, who although trying her best to cope with a table of 12, obviously has yet to 'learn' the basic etiquette when dealing with a customer and an incorrect order. Firstly, always assume the customer is right - is that not the rule of thumb? Secondly, do not ever challenge your customer from across the bar in front of other patrons accusing your customer of giving you the incorrect order when, as a waitress you should be confirming the order prior to placing it and then bringing out the incorrect order. It does not bode well and leaves a considerably 'bad' taste in one's mouth especially after enjoying what was essentially a delicious meal. Word of advice - teach your staff to deal with conflict situations in a more mature and professional manner. The results, you may find, will be a far better outcome than what your waitress experienced afterwards ultimately resulting in her losing what would have been an exceptional tip over a R38 'brownie". Otherwise the rest of the staff were well mannered and extremely helpful although in saying that, the manager on duty that night lacks considerable etiquette too as not once did he come over to us to apologise for the mix up but instead sent his newbie waitress to the sort out the mess with the result that it was handled in a complete and utter debacle.

  • the food at Taco Zulu is alright if not a little bland. The waiters are very bad at recommending dishes that the patron may enjoy, service is abysmal and complaints are not welcomed or attended to or even entertained. The burrito in cold tomato and onion puree is disgusting.

  • After a bit of hype, the experience was such a let down. We waited 45 minutes for a drink, an hour and a half for food and when the food came, two dishes were wrong! After 2 dishes had been served, one of our party was told that theyd run out of steak, so were bringing her a chicken dish instead. I was given my chimichanga without even being told it was a vegetarian one and not a steak one. Very little sincere attempt to rectify it - we were offered a coffee to apologise. We werent willing to wait half an hour to see if they could get that right so we left. We wont be back!
