Customer Reviews

  • positive review  We had Jabulela braai for our wedding - These guys were awesome from start to finish. So accommodating to our needs (from the picky vegans who wanted food cooked on separate grills, to the last minute change to the number of guests), top quality food and just all round nice guys. Their choice of food was amazing - I wish we could've had it all at our wedding! Our guests loved the food, and so did we. They're such lovely people, they even gave our wedding co-ordinator a lift home when her trains were cancelled, and popped some food over to our evening caterers too. Thanks again for everything. 10/10 would recommend. Will be looking for an excuse to book these guys again!

    5 star review  We chose Jabulela to do the evening braai at our wedding reception and we were delighted with our choice. The booking process was straight forward, and Paul and Sarah are very easy to correspond with. We had a choice of 4 menu options and chose our traditional South African favourites. The process of setting up the braai, cooking the food and serving it was seamless. The food was absolutely delicious, and our guests were going back for third helpings. Everyone was very enthusiastic about the food and we received nothing but positive comments. Jabulela also provided delicious homemade monkeygland sauce to accompany the meat/chicken. We are so pleased we chose Jabulela to cater the evening braai at our wedding and would not hesitate to highly recommend them for any wedding or function. Their friendly, thoughtful approach towards us and our guests added a special touch to what was a perfect day. Thanks again to Paul and Sarah!

    positive review  Great to come across a bbq that caters for vegetarian and vegan food, and ensures it is cooked and prepared away from meat products. Will gladly recommend them to everyone. Amazing friendly people with top quality delicious food. Look forward to seeing their monkey sauces in the supermarkets

    5 star review  If you are out and about and are in need of some top quality food and you see these guys, DEFINITELY give them a visit. They were at the sausage and cider festival, there were loads of food vans, these guys had the best food by far. And the bbq sauce with bourbon was to die for! nice guys too!
