Jiko The Cooking Place

W. Osceola Pkwy. , Disney's Animal Kingdom
Kissimmee , FL , United States
(407) 939-3463

Jiko (“Jee-ko”) is Swahili for “the cooking place.” This African, Indian, and Mediterranean restaurant in Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is decorated in earthtone colors and outfitted with a mix of blue-seated booths and padded chairs around wood tables. A wall mural resembles savannah grass, while a sculpture/light-fixture combination above look like a flock of abstract white birds against a deep-blue ceiling. A show kitchen makes it easy to watch the chefs in action. Seasonal menus include everything from grilled wild boar to flatbreads cooked in a brick oven, and Jiko has received awards for its wine list, which includes South African labels such as Warwick Three Cape Ladies.
