Most food here is traditional and quite good. Its a place that a lot of the guides take tourists to to eat and drink. It seems like organised chaos but it seems to work. Good food though, enjoy.

Was some seriously good food. Local but superb. The briyani was spiced to perfection and the chicken was moist and tasty. Will definitely go back there

Great if you are looking for a local food resturant that is safe and clean. They have delicious local Zanzibari dishes with a variety of choice. So when visiting stone town make it a point that you must eat here..! Totally worth the visit and the food is worth every shilling..!

If you're visiting stone town you must eat here!Second to Forodhani garden this is my fav eating spot in stone town. They have delicious local zanzibar cuisines at a fair prices. The juices and coffee are amazing . Plus friendly staff. Takes a while to order food if you're not used to the system but totally worth every shilling!

Our hotel recommended Lukmaan for some good local food, and they were absolutely correct! We stuck to the vegetarian dishes, sharing four or five small curries/stews, some kachumbari, and rice. Along with two drinks each, the total price was less than USD10. My favourite was an absolutely delicious pea and coconut curry. Agree with other reviews - it is busy,... More

It's like a fast food restaurant! You join the queue and show what you want. The selection is voluminous - that's right, but they never have Kisamvu!
