We weren't generally dazzled by our food in Arusha. This was one of our better meals we had there, including the almost ubiquitous pizza. We also had good fish and eggplant parmigiana. Pleasant covered patio.

The food was good when it arrived but we were facing a time crunch to get a friend to the airport and it took forever to get our food after it had been ordered. And the music was too loud.

Sorry about the delay in food. We might have been busy n hence the delay. We will certainly look into this and improve on the service and lower the music.

I think if a place cannot provide good/fresh sashimi, it shouldn’t be on the menu, especially due to health reasons as it’s raw fish. Being Asian, I was really looking forward to the sushi here as the reviews of the restaurant are quite high. But...More

Thank you for the review. As you know things are quite expensive to buy in Arusha especially imported items and that’s why our prices are so. But I’m sure you enjoyed and you are most welcome again
