Superb juices, excellent service, good food - very good prices. Need we say more? The fact it is really close to both the market and the old town is a nice bonus!

We tried many different rice types, and they were at a fair price. The shark however was literally disgusting (too salty). The place is clean and the service is friendly.

Lukmaan is the best restaurant if you want to try typical food. There is a big buffet and they explain what is every dish and allow you to mix different foods. Fresh food, generous portions at a very cheap price. Friendly staff.

I can't imagine stown town without this place. Although simple to look at, it's quick and affordable food is tasty and covers many local specialties. This is my go-to when I am hungry in stone town because the variety keeps it interesting.

Really tasty Zanzibar-Indian cuisine that delivers on flavour and is excellent value for money. Go there hungry. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are an added bonus.

Our tour guide had suggested this restaurant as serving typical local food. It was certainly busy with a mixture of locals and tourists However the service was really poor,it took a long time to order our food and even longer to get it It was...certainly not worth the wait We only wanted a snack and had ordered chicken skewers and samosas Which were cold when we got them and almost inedible To make matters worse we were overcharged which I didn't dispute as it was a relatively small amount and we just wanted to get outMore

Best restaurant in Zanzibar for local food! Good value, tasty and wide selections. Friendly and helpful staff. It was mostly locals eating here, so it felt like an authentic experience away from all the westernized tourist traps.
