I enjoyed trying local flavors like hibiscus and tamarind. The portions are small, but the taste is good.

31 degrees and had read the reviews about this place so it was a no brainer. 2 scoops for 6,000 shillings. Hibiscus, cardamom, vanilla, chocolate, peanut.....plenty of flavours to choose from, from the traditional to the more ‘exotic’

This gelato is amazing - p[trobably the best in Zanzibar. The variety of flavours are out of this world. Who would have thought to try masala ice-cream? Or cardamom? Even avocado. This is s Bucket List MUST when in Stone Town
