Beautiful garden

Happy hour on drinks (buy 2 get 3rd free) from 5 till 7 pm. The South African Obikwa is their house wine - really nice. Shared the meat platter with a friend. We had beef, pork and chicken mixed.

I had long wanted to eat at a restaurant in Africa that served game meat (as opposed to bush meat, which one should avoid at all costs if you value your life). So, when I heard about The Lawns in Kampala, I began to look for an opportunity. j I was not disappointed. The game sampler is the way to... More

I tried this restaurant with my husband because we were very curious about the game meat, is been a long time that is not allowed in Kenya so let'S try. The setting is nice looking at the setting area in the garden, but probably is nicer at night and more warm on weekends with more people. Our waitress was very... More

A nice veranda restaurant overlooking a lawn sprinkled with seating sections, and a trio playing when I was there on Thursday. At the suggestion of friends we ordered the wild beast platter which we shared, together with a main course avocado salad, and South African wine. The meats - wilder beast, crocodile, blessbok and springbok - were very well seasoned,... More

The menu is good for adventurous eaters and plain-Jane's alike. But whatever you order, come hungry! Our kids were craving a burger, and could not finish half of it. I devoured the chicken tikka masala and thought it was supurb. Others in our party ordered more exotic fare, and were just as pleased. Don't come if you want a rushed... More
