Our group of travelers ate here twice. They accommodated our schedule by allowing us to place our meal order an hour or so before we planned to return. This was very helpful. The food was good and the service average.

Our group ate twice here during our 2 1/2 week trip to Uganda. Food is excellent, service is friendly if Ugandan-slow. Western toilets, clean and tidy. Lovely selection of souvenirs from Gulu's Amani and Samaritan collectives. Free wifi. Absolutely a must-stop.
