good food

We go there once a month for the German immigrants meeting, that takes place every first Monday of the month. Speciality on the menu is German food, which is done very nicely. The two bar areas are dark and loud in the evenings, especially, when they show a movie.

If you really like to relax and enjoy good bbq and music. This could be the place for you. It's spacious acceptable rest rooms. The times I used to frequent the place, it had become a preferred hangout for university students. So I guess it wasn't a bad place to roll back the years. Drinks are cold, which in Kampala... More

If you are one person who enjoys listening to music, this is one place you should check out. It serves fast foods, chips,chicken,fish,pork-ribs and much more, the prices are fair enough. I must add, the food takes a bit longer than one would wish. A little crowded over the weekends with all sorts of people.

When I reached there a waitress was welcoming me and asked me where I would like to sit and I choose the Garden. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there - with the lights in the trees and the smooth music in the background. It was not taking long until a waiter attended to me and took my order. The beer... More

Nyama choma, is the local name for roasted beef, or goat, and that's what is down at this. and of course being surrounded by trees, the place is cool, and nice breeze around it.

Admittedly, it is not a bad place for having a drink or two. In the weekend it is quite lively. Both locals and travelers go there. Last time I was there, however, the security staff assaulted my wife. While sitting at a table security guys used brute force to get her out of the place (because they claim she has... More
