Recent visit to Goma. Le Chalet was recommended. Many ex-pats go there to eat. The pizza is really good (thin and crispy crust). The food does take a while. Note: The restaurant does not take $US1 notes.

Goma is a tougher city. This place is an oasis. Dinner for three with appetizer and a beer cost $85 American. Food was fine. ( burgers and pizza ) It’s a good place to go if you a a jittery DRCongo guest.
