Chakalaka is Back

Get your sunshine fix at Manchester’s only South African bar and kitchen

If you’ve been craving our South African classics then pine no longer – Chakalaka is back.

Head to the Northern Quarter for all your jaffle, bunny chow and boerewors needs.

If you’re not yet experienced the full-on flavours of hearty South African cooking then you are in for a treat.

Chilli heat, complex curry flavours, the famous South African sausage and boozy puddings – you’ll find it all at Chakalaka. We’re an independent bar with an independent spirit. We serve this food because we love it and we want you to love it too.

Our bar and kitchen also serves up South African drinks we’ve selected, from softs to ciders, brandy to beer and other specialities too alongside our usual offerings.

A shot of Suit Case and you could be in Cape Town. That’s a shot of JD followed by a shot of Rose’s Passion Fruit Cordial for those of you that aren’t South African!
