Delicious Chicken curry and Best Ice cream

We stopped by for lunch on our way to the airport, the snacks and the chicken curry were delicious. The ice cream was the best I had in a long time. Thanks Salim and your team for taking care of us.

An old standby for cheap snacks when in town on business. Nothing special, but not bad either. I would not go out of my way to eat there.

I love the pizzas at Blue Room. Their everyday value, 2 pizzas for 990 is a great value. The service is always great.

This place had gone numerous make-overs from one time famous movie renting library. The place is very popular both with locals and tourists. Recommend for people who want to taste some local, indian, veg popular dishes and do not miss the famous Passion juices.

This place is huge and very well staffed. We were seated quickly and were taken care of throughout our meal. The food selection was good and everything we ordered was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. We especially liked the biryani and the ice cream too!

Like I say, the coffee is good. There's also a useful Internet cafe (good if you need something printed). But both times I've eaten here the food was very disappointing.

Located in Mombasa City centre. Very accesible and everyone in Mombasa wants to be taken to this place because majority cant afford it, when you offer to take any one for Lunch they will prefer it. Its a good place and popular sport but not a place for the ordinary Mombasa traveller.
