“Love and hate it (mostly hate it however)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Love:
The really excellent and authentic food. Congratulations!
An unprofessional, slow and yet friendly and natural waitress :-)

Hate:
Just about anything else:
The horrible setting, the nasty, dark toilet, the chaotic menu without any concept and the overall feeling of low hygyenic standards.

It was even expensive for Tanzanian standards.

If in Manza, go to Tilapia. The prices are the same, everything else is worlds apart!

“decent price with nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This restaurant had a small buffet that you could find something to eat no matter what your nationality. It was priced fair and the service was good in an air conditioned 2nd floor area with a secure parking garage on the 2nd level as well.

“Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The different times we have eaten here, we have really enjoyed the Indian and Chinese food most. The service is a little slow at times but really no different than most other places. I would definitely recommend eating here.

“Good food right downtown.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We ate at the restaurant several time during our stay in Mwanza and were pleased with the quality of food. The restaurant is clean and the stay professional and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to all. The fish dishes were perfectly cooked each and every time. their desserts and cakes were a delight. It is an easy walk from anywhere downtown.

“Very good Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Their menu is huge and "global", but I would stick with the Indian food.
The paneer was particularly good.
The ambience is sort of eh (overlooks a busy street) but it is perfectly clean and fine. The service is no different than any other restaurant in Mwanza (slow by American standards but not rude). If you are in Mwanza for a few days, I'd recommend adding this restaurant to your rotation, but only after making the obligatory trip to Tilapia and Diners first.
