The rickshaw restaurant offers a wonderful view over the nile junction and tutti island. The service is very attentive. Everytime I was there, me and my business colleague were the only guests. Food is good and well presented.

The setting and design of the restaurant is splendid. The food is well cooked and served and the service is very good.

This is actually in the Corinthian hotel, which is the new name for the Burj Al-Fateh, so don't get confused. The food was very good, and I was hungry for spring rolls and hot- sour soup, so I wasn't disappointed. For locals, it could be expensive, but with the currency conversion rates, it's affordable for foreigners. Well, the view and the service are top. I didn't like it though as I left a large tip for our waiter, and the man running the cash register came and grabbed it before the waiter got to the table. The waiter probably never saw that tip!
We had a table toward the outside edge facing toward the window, and the table is actually on a clear surface not attached to any wall, so you get the impression of being slightly suspended above floors visible below and that view all around you - Nice? Yes, wine would have made it even better.... (Too bad that the 5 star hotels in Khartoum can't offer it.)

From the other reviews It seems like I had an unlucky experience. 3 of us visited at around 9 pm, it wasn't busy - there were about 4 or 5 other parties seated with 2 staff looking after things... We ordered some drinks while we waited to order food, after 3 reminders the drinks came 30 minutes later and this was to be the theme for the rest of the evening. To cut a long story short, we didn't get served our main course until around 11 pm - a number of the other guests had given up waiting by this point and left without eating. When the food arrived it was not well cooked and in fact all 3 of us had stomach problems the next day.

All this is a real shame as the young woman who appeared to be in charge was incredibly positive and friendly and the waiter was also clearly out to do a good job.

I can only assume they were short of staff although this was never communicated and no offer was made to compensate customers in any way.

In summary, great location and ambience but let down by the experience.

Food is good, a mix of different Asian influences (Chinese, Japanese, Thai) Staff excellent and very friendly. View up on the 18th floor is great. Best place for a romantic dinner in Khartoum.
