The only place you'll find crocodile on the menu, Bantu Bar & Grill delivers a unique dining experience with their tapas-style African dishes.

Driven by culinary passion and a sincere desire to bring authentic African plates to the people of Birmingham, Bantu's purpose is simple and effective and this makes it the place it is today. Located on Fleet Street, it's a schmoozy, seductive spot, kitted out with luxurious velvet chairs and a wicked purple lighting theme. If you don't feel like a celeb walking down their backlit spiral staircase, you're doing it all wrong!

The menu is as authentic as they come. Start with some pulled piri piri chicken, boerewors & chakalaka (a warming sausage and bean dish) or go for some Ghanian yam balls. This restaurant really is for the thrill-seekers looking to go completely off-piste; with that in mind, why not order in a crocodile burger for mains? Yes, you read right, that terrifying dinosaur makes for a tasty patty!

If you're not keen to snap that up, go for something more familiar, like the BBQ ribs, Morrocan lamb or Durban bunny chow that comes in a hollowed-out loaf of bread. Comfort food reaches its peak with the Kenyan beef stew and the traditional goat dish, nyama choma. Meat-lovers are in for an absolute treat at this eatery and there's nowhere better to broaden those carnivorous horizons!
