Awesome Food

I loved all the food! There was always a variety and each dish was perfectly made. They had western and Tanzanian food, as well as always having a vegetarian dish, which was important, since I'm a veggie. The restaurant staff was also friendly and attentive. Tip them well! They deserve it!
