Amazing buffet of Swahili food offerings. The staff are friendly and will help you choose from the tantalizing selections. Busy, busy but service is fast and friendly. Frequented by locals, residents, and tourists alike.

Simple local eatery serving daily dishes. We had briyani rice, beef curry, tandoori chicken and aubergine masala and all were very tasty. We saw the guy making fresh naans in the tandoor outside and ordered one ourselves. They also serve freshly squeezed orange juice.
