The lunch buffet was all starch and over-priced (3000Rf, no drink) compared to other, better lunch buffets.
As we travel with very low-budget, the Karibu was twice our dinnerplace when we slept in Kigali. The service is very slow ("do they find the goat?") but good. The buffet was cheap (2000 RWF) but nice. I really loved the bananas in tomatoesauce.. But when he had to go to the toilet, I rather wait to go somewhere else..... More
The lunchtime buffet is very popular and is an all you can eat feast! For 2,500 RWF (£2,50) you can fill your plate with salad, carbs of all manner, veg, banana curry etc etc and a drink. The lunchtime buffet is much better as it is hot, fresh and has more selection. Later in the day, the choice is more... More
Karibu offers an above average African buffet at a reasonable fixed price, 2500 RWF and reasonably priced drinks. The food is plentiful, although it is a bit heavy on the carbs.

This is a perfetly located local style watering hole with fantastic prices (2500 RWF for buffet and 1000 RWF for a big beer).

The price is right (2,500 francs), drinks are cheap (500 for soda) and they have a nice outdoor sitting area. While the buffet is carb heavy like most, the nice thing about Karibu is that they offer a huge variety of choices, and... More
I always look forward to at least one lunch at Karibu when I am in Kigali, which has been at least once a year for the past 9 years. For lunch, I always like a buffet when I am in most African countries - fast, efficient, and you can see what you are getting. Relaxed, easy-going, perfect for casual business... More
A long established self service restaurant near the centre of town. The tables are mostly outside in the garden so make sure you get one with an umbrella at the table - the sun is strong in dry season and the rain is heavy in wet season! It is a fixed price, you pay on entry, and there is a... More
