Had lunch with some potential clients. We ordered chips and chicken wings. The chicken wings were horrible,Guess the cooking oil they use. For a drink a requested for dawa. It was unique but not the best. The hotel has alot of potential if well managed. The tents outside can be replaced with something better.
