Very nice food - worth to visit, if you are afraid to go for something truly local. The curry was fantastic!

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!

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!
