This place is overrated. The service is poor with one server serving 10 plus tables and the owner is uptight with attitude. If you are looking for east african cuisine that is better than try Africana or Tiffin Curry and Roti House. We have had a bad experience twice now and decided never to step foot again in this place.

We attended a Vine and Dine at Safari Grill. Their selection was fantastic and the Service was very good as was the food they served. The selection we had was a sample of various foods from Butter Prawns to Lamb Chops to BBQ Chicken skewers. All superbly cooked. Recommend these guys for a nice night out for dinner.

Spiced to perfection! I strongly recommend the Mogo Masala and Lamb Chops. My only disappointment, is that I only get to Calgary once a year!

I booked a table at Safari Grill through Open Table for 2 people. I was taking my friend to celebrate her promotion and I wanted it to be flavourful for her as she is a foodie! We booked the table for 7pm and as expected, we were warmly welcomed! We ordered the Serengeti Platter. We enjoyed every bite of it... More

Safari Grill, with its committment to using only the freshest ingredients as well as mirroring true East African hospitality, succeeds in delivering an authentic African experience. With decor that has been imported from countries such as Tanzania and Kenya, coupled with local beers and beverages, one can lose themselves in this reflected reality.
