As we were residents of the hotel we were guaranteed a good spot at the restaurant which we booked each morning. We had a spectacular room with a sea view which was great because it meant we had a great chill out area to relax in. I would only stay in a room with a sea view at this hotel.... More

We ate here a lot as we stayed at the bungalows. Staff not friendly - at times bordering on rude. Had to ask myself whether just a language communication issue ! Or lack of training. Was not always pleasant. Food ok. Not special . Lots of items on menu were unavailable. Lovely spot. Tight squeeze on covered deck. Found better... More

I really enjoyed the items on the special section listed as spicy. Ate dinner at Langi Langi at least three times in the two weeks I was at Nungwi. Price competitive for the area, and the menu had many unique items compared to other restaurants.

We stayed here and choose Langi Langi based on the fact that it is supposed to have the best restaurant in Nungwi - Not at all, the best restaurant is Mama Mia. The accommodations are basic, small but clean and has no view if you stay in the garden rooms, it is however quite cute with some small wild animals... More

Tried it as it was number one on TA, but the quality was below average and the service very lacking.

I really wanted to visit this restaurant, went there twice and each time we could not be served, because it was not dinner or lunch time... I think the time for dinner is thus only from 19:00 and lunch only served until 14:00... So not saying anything good / bad about this place - just a note for future :)

Food here is very nice! We had the vegetable curry, prawn curry, seafood platter and jumbo prawns. Service is sometimes a little slow but you can relax and look over the great sunset views! No cocktails but banana milkshake is great!

We either didn't have the same amazing curry in all the reviews or we've just had better in other places and expected more. The quantity and service were good. We stayed at the Z Hotel nearby and their restaurant and cafe are far better! Plus both are right on the beach (sand or deck) with more space between tables. Better... More

Good restaurant with all types of delicious food. Right on the beach and you don't have to wait too much for the food. Friendly staff and a good spirit. We enjoyed and we're coming back.

Had a nice dinner and both of us got food poisoning and was out of action for a day. I was surprised as it was a nice place. Normally I don't get taken out like that, guess it can happen anywhere. Lovely view nice place for a drink.
