Simple and unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant with the warmest of African welcomes and an authentic atmospheric setting. We were the only guests on a Thursday evening- normally this would have provoked great uneasiness- but not here! The genuine warmth and friendliness of the staff meant we were well looked after and able to enjoy the local cuisine- mutton curry with rice... More

We have visted several times African pot with our guests and each time it is a real experiance. Nobody is disappointed. We advise you to try several different side dishes and to choose one head menu. Prices are very reasonable.

African Pot is a good recommendation for a traditional meal out! All the dishes are prepared fresh- so don't go there hungry, as the food takes a while to come out of the kitchen! But once arrived you will enjoy the well seasoned dishes which are served in traditional clay pots!! My favorite there is the mutton with fresh chapatis!

We were the only tourists and visited as a family with small children, it's rustic, it's African and it was a great place. The... More

What an interesting and quirky place this was to get great meals all the lunch times we felt like eating something at lunch. Quite a quirky place with very homely decor and very pleasant staff. Meals were always exceptionally done and served in traditional African Pots! Definitely a place to keep going back to when in Diani!
