“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had lunch at this restaurant in December and have a feeling I'm going to dream about my starter for years to come. It was a crab soup served in a half coconut that was just exceptional - a little bit spicy, but tempered by the coconut. Fantastic - if you get the chance, try it!

We were a big group (8), which put a little pressure on the staff to get dishes out together, but they were very kind. The ambiance was very nice - and the cushioned seats were comfy.

“Very tasty food and lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had dinner at Beyt Al Chai during our stay in Stone Town and we had a very good experience at this restaurant.
The fish was excellent. My husband had a seafood platter which was a huge portion of lobster, cigale, white fillet fish, squid, prawns and other seafood which was excellent value for money. A big platter for one person!
The food was all very tasty and well prepared. The service was great: with a smile and at normal speed (which is quite something for Africa!).
I would definitely go back again and recommend it to others.

The food in this restaurant is just fantastic. Try a beef or a red snapper and you will not be disappointed.

“Best restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We ate there 3 times! They make the best lobster in Stone Town! Their bruchettas are a must have as an appetizer.
