A little hard to find, down a side street from the center of town. It is near the railroad tracks, which should serve as a good landmark. Worth tracking down. A beautiful little place, with an interior dining room as well as an outdoor patio under large shade trees. Authentic Shona dishes are featured, for the adventurous diner. More conventional guests will find plenty of other choices on the menu. Frequently out of certain things on the menu, a good indicator of the local sourcing of key ingredients. Often there are unusual daily specials, such as crocodile steaks or kudu stew. Open for lunch and dinner. Worth at least one visit, and if you are in town for a few days, you will probably go back.

This resteraunt was very good. Food fresh and plenty to choose from. I liked where you picked what you wanted and then they cooked it on there hot plate. It was delicious .

We went there just once and they didn't have electricity (because the train was getting fixed)...we tried the buffalo and was delicious...the service a little slow...prices a little high...nothing spectacular!

But touristy prices. Good service, but a little slow. Meat was a bit dry. Peanut butter rice - a must try.

My wife ordered a wrap, mentioned to the waitress no lettuce and no spicy. It came with lettuce and very little vegetables. I had to five my wife my curried rice to eat with wrap. My curry rice and potatoes was very good. The place is nice, very rustic and typical.
