Pishi is one of the local restaurants that is not directly attached to a hotel resort. This definitely reflects on the more than reasonable prices as well as the friendly service - besides a fresh, delicious prawn dinner we ended up getting a lot of help on different activities in and around Jambiani. Strong recommendation for anyone travelling in the... More

We were a group of 14 and had gone for lunch. They started preparing all the food from scratch after we placed the order. Cutting and chopping onions, etc. It took almost 1.5 hours to bring the food. The food was good, but the wait was just too long.

the food was just delicious and the waiter was very caring. we got even an extra starter and some gratis dessert. I think it may not be the easiet to run a restaurant at this location, you also don't assume it there, but the food and service was awesome! cheers, alina

Pishi is a great little restaurant, hidden behind the beach in Jambiani (but well marked with signs). We tried the pizza, chicken masala and coconut crusted fish. Everything was excellent, especially the fish and the side of eggplant. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with no rush to eat and leave. You could even go for a walk around the beach... More

a little bit hidden from the beach, but with good marker to the small restaurant with very good food, always fresh cooked and very friendly, young staff. We got to know a lot about dailylife on Zanzibar talking to the staff. We went 3 times for fish, chicken and fruitjuice. They also rent bicycle, car and diffrent tours, as many... More

Pishi's restaurant is set in the centre of the small fishing village of Jambiani. We walked there from our b and b, and the locals were very friendly, with "Jambo!" bring called out to us left, right and centre. The restaurant is quite hard to find but worth the exploration. The restaurant is quite small and really cute, decorated with... More
