The takeaway food here is really good - may be the best in Kigali - but the ambience is nothing to write about. So for takeaway - 5 stars....ambience 1 star! Choose your poison!

I think the taste here is even better than Khazane! Setting though is the worst -so this is best for takeaway only.

We got take out from here - for which we were grateful - as the seating is not terribly pleasant. The food quality was superb - especially the breads and malai kofta.

We went for lunch with friend and we ordered vegetarian Briani and chicken tikka masala. The waiter only brought the masala not the briani and when they brought it it was just rice and peas which wasn’t briani at all. Avoid.

Went there to have dinner, the place is well maintained. The quality and quantity of the food were good. N.B try out their Plain\/ Butter Naans. They have the best in Kigali. Had a good experience overall.

Ordered a few vegetarian dishes and was totally disappointed. The taste wasn't good, the cottage cheese wasn't soft and quantities were also limited. Overall, it was a bad experience and not worth the money at all.
