I had lunch with my fiance while visiting Diani. They served a nice starter - cassava crisps as we waited for our Biriani (which was not on the menu) but we were advised it would be served.

If you want to have fun with your friends just go to African Pot. The restaurant offers Kenian food in small hot pots. Try to ask several side dishes so that every body can choose what to eat. If you are lucky there is a life band playing for you !

We always take our guests to the African Pot. We always take different side dishes so everybody can try the different things. The evening was very relaxed and the life band made it even more romantic. If you are in Diani, just try the African Pot and you will be surprised !
