This is a place that you can locate simply by using your nose. The hungry lion aroma is captivating and will hypnotize you into buying some. Their fries are still by far the most solid and the chicken is tasty. You are guaranteed a full stomach. Recent price increments are sad and there is room for improvement in how they handle the crowds at peak hours. This is a place to go to for the strict business of eating, but can be a good spot to relax and chat provided that its not peak hour.

Wait time was very long but overall the food was satisfactory! Got dinner here for my group of 15 and they enjoyed the fried chicken and the chips.

Came here for a chicken sandwich to see what was so good it drove most of the other American franchises out of town. Under 50ZMK for big boss burger with cheese, chips and 500 ml coke, and side order of mashed potatoes. Filling. Very good. Cheap. Did at the Waterfalls Mall location.

I usually do not make any reviews of any kind but I was just so disappointed today when I visited the The Hungry Lion by Irringa mall. I ordered the big boss cheese burger, fries,one piece chicken and hot chocolate but was told to wait for ten minutes as they had to make my burger "really fresh & good so I could enjoy it", well so i was told. I stood there waiting for my order for almost an hour. All the people I had ordered with,including those that ordered after me, got their food and even finished eating and left while I still stood there. I had to ask how far my order was but still the man who was supposed to be making my order didn't even respond. The lady who made my order tried to tell them about my order as she felt sorry for me but the lady who was giving out the orders shouted at her to continue attending the customers. No other person seemed to mind that I was just standing there. By the time I was receiving my order, the very lady who had been looking at me unconcerned gave it to me and apologized for the delay but still forgot to make the hot chocolate for me. I had to show her my order and ask her to make me the hot chocolate again. It was so frustrating but I hoped the burger would make up for it. When I finally sat to eat, the burger was not worth the time and money I paid, the chicken tasted like salt was not added when cooking and it wasn't as tasty. I wasted my time and money. I don't

Just an observation. I visited Hungry Lion Cairo just near Cairo Mall, and there I wanted to buy ice cream on Take Away basis. With this, I was only told by the cashier that since Hungry Lion does not do Take Away service for Ice Cream orders, they could not cover my ice cream with a lid. I was quite unamused by that. Hungry Lion, please introduce that system where Ice creams (Cup Ice Creams) are covered just for hygiene purposes, especially for Take Away. There is also need to improve the texture quality of the ice cream. The best quality I have tasted so far is from places like Panarottis, Dairy Fayre, Bread Café and Milky Lane. They have really good Ice Creams.

I was in Lusaka Zambia for 17 days 11/20/20 to 12/8/2020 and this was THE place to be! I am American from California and I will tell you hands down, there is no better chicken here in CALIFORNIA. Omg I loved it and I miss it as I type this. Also, at the Waterfalls location, KFC is right across from Hungry lion and I did not eat there at all. Hungry lion was always busy and the smell was just sooo good. Anyway, if you are in the area pick up a 2 or r or 12 piece and chips. We (me and my love) always got the boss package which was 4 pieces and 2 chips and we split it. Give it a try!

So, all these years I have known Hungry Lion as a very reputable restaurant countrywide offering the most remarkable ala carte menu with variety of delicious chicken and chips, drinks, salads, ice cream and many others not mentioned. However, at this point HL as become a nightmare all because of one experience I had at the Novare outlet. Service there is pathetic, poor staff attitude and sorry but I'll mention names because their employer needs to note the people tarnishing the image of our reputable restaurant. There is a young lady called Kasongo and a man called Richard. These people are the reason I have given this review today. HL management, please ensure to higher qualified people who can not only uphold the good name that you have but also give remarkable service to your esteemed customers. I wish it didn't reach this level but the service was that poor and it's a huge concern.

Hungry Lion is so popular among the members of my mission team when we are in Zambia. The price is amazingly low for "The Big Bite"; 3 pc. chicken with a big order of chips (French fries), and a drink. It is less than $4. It's always crowded, so you can see it is very popular with the locals, as well. There are many of these franchises in Zambia, so no matter where you go, you will find Hungry Lion.

I really feel the addition of the spicy Zamba wings added more value to HL. The left over heat in your mouth after you're done eating them makes you want to grab another. I just hope they get a little more consistent in the spice amounts because some days are hotter than others. 😅

Great chicken, i had a bucket of chicken pieces and it was worth the price because the chicken was nicely done and very tasty. The service is okay though when its crowded then your order might delay a bit but its normal even in other places.The stuff gave good customer service and very friendly.Good place for some nice chicken.

Generally as we like road trips, we also try not to eat everywhere and anywhere coming from Namibia, but after a long trip full of dried fruits and light meals, my kids like a good meal and this is the place to be
