“Decent”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Atmosphere was nice, food just ok. Pizza is definately the best option. Service was very slow, even by Arusha standards. I would go back, however.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Great pizza, friendly staff but expensive. The outdoor dining area is not grass but gravel which is not great but the food makes up for it.

“Watch the bill, bring Tanzanian currency”
Reviewed November 18, 2011


If you order the pizza, get the one with blue cheese. This makes an otherwise bland pizza fairly palatable. But check your bill closely - we ate there twice, and one time there was an error. And the resaurant's exchange rate is very unfavorable so use Tanzanian currency if possible.

The atmosphere is nice because of the Indoor/outdoor seating area.

Our group found the food inconsistent. One steak "tough as nails", the next "OK". Some of the Indian meals were delicious, others lacking flavor.

Service was sporadic, even throughout the same meal. And getting the bill at the end of dinner was quite a challenge.

This restaurant was convenient to our lodging and better than the restaurant there. Not bad for Tanzania but needs some improvement.
