“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We four had the pizza at the House of Spices located amidst a filthy lane in Stone Town. Dining is on the upper floor and the decore is quite nice and the pizza better than expected.

“Great pastry shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

we descoverd this tearoom belong to the House of Spices restaurant by a fortunate case.
It is cozy, very tastefully decorated, however, it is nothing compared to what they offer inside.
We have had an amazing helzemut chocolate salami coming along with spiced sauce, ice clove tea and a fresh juice.
All delicious!!

“Good food Good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had there ravioli with saffron sauce and can highly recommend it. Partner ate pizza, sails it was good also . We got there early and most table were reserved so make reservations if can.
Great view over town from this roof top restaurant. Service rather slow but hors d'oeuvres excellent . Very convenient walk for guests staying at Zanzibar Coffee House, right around corner.

“Brilliant food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Really good atmosphere up on the rooftop, the service was very good and the food was brilliant! Some of the best pasta I have ever had, and certainly one of the best meals I have had in Africa.
