Shaka Zulu for dinner

Last month my boyfriend and I went to Shaka Zulu’s in Camden Markets, London to enjoy a South African dining experience. I had seen a few photos of the restaurant in the press and read about the vast money spent on the interior and I wasn’t disappointed
An impressive cavernous interior with large Zulu warriors watching over the guests along with numerous wooden carvings, African print and brightly coloured covers on chairs and lounges. I particularly liked a wall near the kitchen with African animals carved into the wood. Birds, zebra, elephant, rhino to name a few.  The toilets were also quite interesting; with a whole wall covered with zebra print wallpaper.
Sadly no photos from this dinner date, however you can take a look at some of the interesting features at
I might be inspired to use some of the techniques seen on the chair coverings to make some cushion covers. Light background fabric with brightly coloured elephants stitched on the top.
I almost forgot to mention the food – highlights were the soft shelled fried crab, and an Ethiopian chicken with boiled egg dish.
