We noticed Green Garden as we were walking around town and, as it looked nice, went in and had maybe the best meal of our whole Africa trip. Zanzibar style salad and entrees and great fruit lassis. We ordered way to much but because it was so good we ate it all.

We have dinner here because of the good reviews, and unfortunately it was a mistake. The pizza dough was not cooked and the tomato was not good. The tuna salad was ok. About the drinks, the avocado milk shake had too much sugar, and the mango lasi was nice.

I stumbled across Green Garden during my Stone Town wanderings. It is a very pleasant place to stop for a little lunch/brunch/ coffee/ refreshment. Staff are friendly, food features fresh ingredients and while service was a little slow it was a welcome little paradise (somewhere) in the middle of Stone Town.

I was at Green Garden the other day, and what a positive surprise. It has new owners and the kitchen chef is from Denmark. I can highly recommend the pizza as well as their drinks and juices. The prices are very moderate compared with other places with the same standard.

a lovely place in the middle of Stonetown offering cozy European feel while keeping Zzbar atmosphere. I had a cocktail juice, which was very good and their sandwiches looked rigid. I wish they had coffee beside Africana. We will see.. they said they soon getting coffee from Zanzibar coffee house. . The 2nd floor was very chill and cute
