Good Touch

Before leaving the country I wanted to have a final African taste and this place did not disappoint. I ordered chicken mafe with african rice...and although it was not as tasty as the ones I ate in the countryside, it was very tasty! A cold beer and good service made the dinner very nice.

The ambience was splendid. There was a valet at the entrance who made everyone feel welcomed. Had Chicken Dodoma and I absolutely loved it.

The food is very mediocre and although fairly reasonable, there are much better places to eat on the strip

Several other guests who arrived after us got their meals and ate it before we decided to leave. Nobody on the staff seemed to actually care while... More
