Papyrus is good for potent cocktails but don't go for food. This rating reflects the food. If you want Asian, definitely go elsewhere. The pad thai was the farthest thing from pad thai, the sizzling tofu was overpowered by sauce, and the spinach was boring. The dim sim also weren't great. If you're looking for a lively drinking environment in a central party neighborhood, it works well! The interior is spacious but doesn't look great - there are stark white walls, neon lights, and wooden tables - but there is a nice view and hookah too. Don't come to mingle with new people, but definitely plan to start off drinking here with friends. Getting the attention of the waiters was very difficult at later hours too, so be assertive.

The restaurant is located in the residence area of Kigali. The building of the restaurant is a complex that Waka Fitness, Envy night club. The restaurant has very beautiful terrace with an excellent view to the city and especially during the sunset. the toilets are clean. The service is good and the place is loved by foreigners.

If you look at Kigali HORECA reviews, Papyrus will always pop up in the top 5, but I'm not sure if this is justified. The place itself is nice, and the view out of windows/terrace is magnificent, especially at night. They are fairly large and have kitchen, bar and music, but honestly the place is far from the buzz attributed to it (or maybe I visited it in all the wrong times).

The food is okay, the service is good, it's a place you can go to in large groups.

A friend and I stumbled upon Papyrus while wandering around Kigali. It was a lovely place to relax and watch the sunset over drinks. However, we were surprised at how pricey it was! Service was good, but overall not worth it for the expensive bill.
