“Friendly staff and good food”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

My daughter has dubbed the pina colada milkshake at The Keep "the best milkshake in the world." And she has had a lot of milkshakes. Their African tea is also outstanding - highly recommend it. An unexpected find in the heart of Jinja - an English Pub. The food does take a fair bit of time to get - guessing it's a smaller kitchen - but was good. We tried the restaurant twice during our visit and were happy with it both times. My husband highly recommends the pizza - but it's only served Fridays and Saturdays. Great staff. Also has free internet connection.

“Get a Milkshake”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We really liked this place. The milkshakes are the talk of the town, and that buzz is warranted. I will definately be back for a milkshake at the bare minimum. The Onion Rings are really good too.

It was pretty quiet the day we were there, so I can't say much about service, but our waitress was on top of everything...including a spill.
