The food is delicious and well priced, the beers are cold, and the service is warm and welcoming. Doesn't get much better than that.

Very nice authentic place with a small entrance between the trees in Matemwe. Lovely local place with amazing food and very friendly staff! We had the seafood platter and coconut curry and the food was delicious and at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.
