Before the recent conflict, Central Pub was "the place to be" at for lunch, all tables packed (heavy on UN, embassies and NGOs), and active in the evening. Some important government officials used to meet there for lunch. There is a large central (outdoor) area and several smaller satellites, all with thatched roof. My new team recently visited, to find... More

A little gem in Juba. They offer a good selection of pizza, salad, and Middle Eastern food, including a wide range of salad. A good mix of people there, it's not all internationals! Thursday night is salsa night, but things don't get going until late, and for many curfew meant that you can't take part in the fun. Service is... More

This is on the UN compound in Juba and is over rated and way over-priced. The lunch buffet is pretty unsatisfyng and the staff are, well, typically unmortivated young people from the area. Went to the Pub twice for lunch in May 2013; first time out of curiosity, second time against my preferences. There won't be a third time.

Good mix of clientele. Great food. They had a barbeque station the night I went (Thursday). Plus, good entertainment for the guests as it was Salsa night. We were able to smoke a sheesha while enjoying the ambience.

I thoroughly enjoyed Salsa night (Thursdays) in this lively venue. There is a small enclosed and a large open bar/restaurant area and a separate bar and dance floor. There was a really great feel aboutn this place and it was very busy. Lots of ex pats but also plenty of locals enjoying a really fun night out. Great music, cold... More

The chicken we ordered was good, but I didn't like the atmosphere here. The menu was like 10 pages long with 200 things on it. And it was extremely dark. I felt like going to sleep.

Ate here ones. The place has a nice atmosphere, but the barbeque food I took was pretty bad and for the price it was not a lot.

This is the place where we have our lunch every day, and we are never disappointed. Food is varied, mostly European, but there are also oriental dishes served. Carol, our special waiter is great and we are treated like the kings and queens we are, every day, all week long !
