“Everything is fried, but at least you can see hippos!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed August 15, 2012

A rather disappointing menu, and slow service. A selection of burgers, Indian curries, some classic Malawian dishes (chambo and nsima) but most things are fried and what I had was lukewarm at best. The veggie samosas were a bit soggy, and the spice chips seem to have been reheated rather than cooked through. Can't really recommend it for the food, but the view over the river was splendid as was the herd of hippos splashing around half way across the river.

We were there with a group of 17 so it was a set menu which I would rather have more choice. That being said the food was good, plentiful, staff was attentive and accommodating.
