A good restaurant, near the Zanzibar’s ferry harbor. Very authentic, always fresh products, always clean, and with a long time reputation.

The hummus is worth its weight in gold. Perhaps it was because I'd recently been on a safari followed by long bus ride...regardless, Al Basha was a great reprieve. A/C as well for those looking to escape the heat.

A small, clean eatery in the city center. Their USP is the Kerala cuisine. Foodwise, pretty ok, nothing much to rave about.
