I absolutely loved Lazuli! The place is very small and nice, the staff is friendly and always with a smile. There is a choice of wraps, hamburgers, pastas, some local dishes and a great variety of fresh juices. We waited for about 30-40 min for our meals to be cooked and were quite surprised to see such huge portions! I... More

This place is a quite popular place among tourists and expats. They don't have many tables, so all the times I've been there, the place has been full one hour after opening (they open at noon if I don't remember wrong). However, they serve easy and good food. Salads, wraps etc with lots of vegetables. They have really good and... More

This is a very simple place that does a range of sandwiches, wraps and local dishes as well as some very interesting juices. They were very responsive to my request for lime soda with no sugar and generally friendly. My tuna and avocado salad was excellent as was the day's special 'Mexican beef bunny chow'. However, it would appear that... More

You would never expect this little restaurant to be any good. It is not easy to find, very small and simply decorated. But the food is super. I had a chick pea curry and my partner had a wrap. Both were good. Sure you have the normal service of zanzibar, but i guess quality takes time. Definitely worth it.

We spent 2 days in Stone Town. On the whole we were very unimpressed with the town but there were a few stand-out places and Lazuli was one of them. Some incredible food at a very decent price with exceptionally good service and a lovely relaxed atmosphere in a cooled room. Fab!

Small , sympathic restoraunt where the meals are prepared with care, diligence and Swahili style. We had prawns in curry with spice rice - was really good - and grilled praws in garlic and lemon with fries - excellent, the shell of the prawns came of as easy as never before which I take as a sign for freshness.

Been to Lazuli every visit to zanzibar and this place really amazes me with the variety and art of food... its amazing how much effort they put in actually presenting the food on the table. Dont forget to get fresh juice which will go down with your food.. PS. Try the Crispy Prawns n Calamari with either rice or chips...... More
