“Another great visit to this lovely Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I think this has become a ritual to go to this restaurant with our African friend.

The food is excellent but too much.

My husband and friend took the fish casserole with ugali but I only had an omelette with four eggs which was adequate for me.

The tuskers were cheap and very cold for the guys and my juice assortment was lovely.

Wash rooms are locked and were clean as usual.

Service is excellent and staff friendly.

We like to watch the world go by at this restaurant. A lot goes on!!!

We shall return soon

“poor hygienne”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

beer was good, they had a variety at a very low cost, the place was very untidy, flies every where and the washroom were very dirty...they switched off, a live premiership game....for a local news bulletin, in swahili which we wldnt uderstand.

“The only place to taste real local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The place has an authentic feel to it and the food is good. I would recommend to pass on mouton or beef because the parts they use are quite poor. If you order meat, stay with the chicken and fish. The prices are higher compared to other local restaurants but are still cheap. The service is excellent. The quantities are very generous. The downside is that the menu offers too many choices.

“Good local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very well priced and excellent foods. The curry is always a winner. At times you can find yourself waiting a while for your food (It's all cooked fresh using local methods) so I would recommend calling ahead.
The restaurant itself has a intimate feel and is well worth a visit at night. Tip: Get the tables under the fans.

“Regional cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

My husband and I took the opportunity to try some of the local cuisine at the African Pot - the dishes were delicious! We would both recommend that travellers to the area give it a go!
