“Great ambience/place to chill out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Had drinks there one afternoon whilst waiting for our friends staying nxt door at Jambo guest house & loved it...there's a great breeze on the upper level & comfy seats/cushions to lounge back & look down at the interesting surroundings...feels like your in a tree house kindof! the mocktails /fresh juices were nice & also the pizzas were yummy...would definitely recommend if your in the area, want a cheap meal & nice atmosphere...service is as slow as anywhere on Zanzibar but its just such a nice place to sit back & relax at!

“Great oasis in the middle of Stonetown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Really nice place with good food. After walking the streets and narrow passageways for a few hours in the heat, just oasis of green is lovely and refreshing. We went here for lunch twice and the food is really good. Definitely a place where I will go again if I visit Zanzibar next time.

“All-around Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We traveled in Zanzibar a month and are now living here. The Green Garden in the heart of Stone Town is a great place all around. The atmosphere is relaxing with lots of green plants and comfortable seating, all of the food we've tried has been great and best of all it's Wi-Fi has always been reliable unlike many other places with Wi-Fi. The staff were also friendly and professional.
Thanks Yassir!

“A green oasis in the middle of Stone Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

A lovely restaurant/cafe in the middle of Stone Town serving the best pizzas and freshly squeezed fruit juices. Having a friendly staff and free wifi this is the top spot for a quick pit stop during the day or a quiet place to enjoy dinner after the sunset. A big thanks to all of the staff, can't wait to see you again!

“I good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I bit tricky to find but fine once you find one of the numerous signs to follow. Service is pretty standard Zanzibari style so best to set off a bit earlier for lunch if you want to eat here. Anyway food itself was very nice and the upstairs seating area is quite, relaxing and calm - away from the hustle and bustle of stone town - great to sit and relax, read a book etc if you want a little break from the chaos below.
