The name Shere Khan translates quite literally to TIGER KING. the ethos behind the innovative menuwith an emphasis on refined yet creative Indian cuisine, the menu incorporates both traditional classic favourites and original new dishes that apply eastern flavours with a western twist. Acclaimed favourites include Karahi, Balti, Lamb Rogan Josh and Chicken Tikka Masala. Located at the heart of Kigali, in a prominent position overlooking The Golf Club at the roof top of the acclaimed Manor Hotel. The sumptuous interior lends itself to the rich vibrancy of India during the colonial era incorporating a palette of rich colours; ruby, green gold, crimson and purple.

Good ambience

Is a restaurant with a great view and a good ambience for a quiet family dinner. The chef is really good and makes one of the best naans with good curry dishes. The tandoori could however improve a bit as we did not find it at par with the rest of the food.

The food was awesome. The ambience was too good. We sat on the terrace and the view of the city was very nice in the evenings. Sheekh kebabs were just mouth-watering. Tried to lay my hands on paneer tikka too which were very well done.

Among the restaurants in Kigali, Share Sardar has the best view. Food was great but the value has some problem. I understand difficulty of managing restaurant, but this price is too high. If you see other indian restaurant's price, you can feel the same as I felt. Service was just so-so.

Love the circus tent-like ceiling, the food was great, loved the outside seating with the amazing views of Kigali. I thought this place had better Indian food than the other Indian restaurants I ate at in Kigali.
