Dinner & Cocktails at Mbuntu, Southampton*

5 June 2021

A new cocktail bar on the scene? Becca's there. I was recently invited down to Mbuntu in Southampton for a complimentary meal at their newly opened cocktail bar and bistro. Founded by Prince Ogbuji, who owns two other restaurants, Mbuntu is a very welcoming place. Mbuntu is an African word meaning “I am who I am because of who we are”. Their whole ethos is about bringing people together and having a real community feel...

THE MENU

Having only just opened, there was only a limited menu available when we visited, but their full menu is far more vast. On the full menu is a bit of everything. From burritos to pasta, and katsu curries to burgers, there really is something for everyone on the menu. When we spoke to the owner, Prince, he also mentioned plans for a salad bar in the future, full of healthy and nutritious options...

THE DECOR

When designing Mbuntu, it's very clear that they had aesthetics in mind. With cosy velvet chairs in pink and green, plants and neon signs, it's very much an instagrammable dream. Cocktails and velvet chairs? It's girls night galore.

THE FOOD

As for the food, I had the Chicken Katsu Curry and it was really tasty! The portion was large (the bigger the better in my opinion), delicious and absolutely full of flavour. Dare I say it, I think it was far better than the cult Wagamama offering! My Mum had the Chicken wrap which again was very tasty and very much full of flavour. It's clear that the food at Mbuntu has been well thought out and perfected!

EVERYTHING ELSE 

The staff were really friendly and attentive, and the cocktail menu was full of different offerings. I had a mango martini and it was delicious. One thing that was really refreshing to see was that cocktails were less than £10 each. The mango martini is £6.50! We love cocktails that don't break the bank!! 


Overall, I really enjoyed my evening at Mbuntu in Southampton and will definitely be eating there again next time I'm in the area. The food was great, the staff were so friendly and the decor is just fab...
