“Worth the wait....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The food was very slow in coming, and yes I agree everybody on African time - pole, pole. Also many of the menu options weren't available and they always seemed to have run out of something - even milk! The food was very good however and portion sizes generous. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.

“Very good food, tasty, clean and friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

We went a group of seven, and in half hour they prepared all what we wanted and the best is lemon chicken. Reasonable prices compared to the food and portion. Overall very very good food.

“Very nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The staff is all on African time, you should not be in a hurry when you come to eat here. But the food is good and affordable!

“Painfully slow but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

The soups are great, and vegetarian options too. Good basic breakfast included if you are staying at the hostel.
