Food was fine. Waiting time was however long. And, basic tip, don’t overload your menu with all kind of dishes (and wines). This influences availability of dishes and it is almost impossible to deliver quality for all this type of dishes.

The staff is amazing but I have to be honest, I went there to have some sushi and it was the worst sushi I have ever had. And I am not tryna sound rude, but raw food is not to be played with. First of...all the sushi bites were way too big, as in one bite could have been two in my opinion. I had the nowergian platter and the sashimi and nigiri were too massive. Too the point were it could too much to chew and have such big bite in my mouth. Atleast the maki roll, but that itself I couldn't finish it. The roll was falling apart and the advocado was too riped. But the worst part was the fish itself because not only was the color of the fish very bland (it didn't have the proper red salmon color), but you could test that the fish was not fresh, it was atleast 2-3 days old. The place has so much potential, so I would HIGHLY recommend hiring a proper sushi chef because that is not how you make sushi. The people working there were so nice, sweet and welcoming tho, it's just unfortunate that the food did not keep up til it's standardMore

If you're looking for a good western meal in Arusha, this is the place. We ate at Picasso's after about ten days out and about in remote villages. I had pizza, and others in our group had hamburgers. My brick-oven pizza was great (pretty close...approximation to US pizza), and reports on the burgers were positive. They also have salads and more healthy food, but after ten days of rice and stewed meat, we were ready for a cheeseburger in paradise.More

This is my first trip to Tanzania and I went to this restaurant with friends who recommended it highly. We were not disappointed. Most of ordered the Italian entrées like pizza and spaghetti. One of our group is vegan and ordered a salad that looked...scrumptious! Another of the group has multiple food allergies and her needs were given careful consideration. We all enjoyed the meal and service very much.More

The service delivery was fantastic, little delay on perfect fresh food and almost none on drinks. Place to be for refreshing milkshakes. The lagzania is something from heaven and quite cheesy 😋😋😋
