“Very pleasant new restaurant in Kampala”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We were doing business in this area and spotted this Turkish restaurant. At first we sat outside and had fresh fruit juice, which was rather nice. We then decided to go inside.

The decor Inside was quite a surprise. The place was beautifully finished with marble effects and wood carvings (as you can see from the photos). The tables were nicely set out and there was a busy mezzanine floor. The place had quite a few diners when we went in so it's obviously popular amongst the locals. Toilets were clean and well furnished with some kind of fancy clear cascading bowls for sinks. Very nice, though the plumbing of the sink in the Gents meant the waste water flowed straight onto the tiled floor!

Two of us ate the African buffet and two of us had the à la carte menu. The local buffet was only 14,000 shillings (about £3.50) and was very, very good. I had Spaghetti Bolognese. It was just about passable. The forth member of our group had the Turkish beef meatballs. She wasn't bowled over by them!

But, if you want a good clean, air-conditioned restaurant in the middle of a Kampala and you fancy the local buffet, you can't do better than this.
