A real tourist trap. No authentic feel at all. The food was tasteless and the price a ripoff. Stay well clear of tis place.

This place is a must to finish a visit to Stone town, fresh and cheap food, and you get the chance to talk to the local chefs...could you ask for more?

Try the Zanzibar pizza , which has nothing to do with the pizzas you use to know, fresh sugar cane or pineapple juices, local beers (Kilimanjaro was my favourite).

Don’t get annoyed by the locals try to sell tours...be polite to them and they will accept a simple “no thanks” without making a fuzz.

We ate here every night of our stay. The food was cheap and good. Vendors will hustle and nag you to buy from them, remember they are just trying to earn a living. You just have to be polite but firm about what you want. Mr Mango was clearly a favourite with his Zanzibar pizza and huuuuuge smile! Other cool things to try are the soup and the schwarma. The atmosphere is vibrant. It's not squeaky clean but it's not filthy either.

From the moment you arrive at the garden square your senses will start going crazy. The smell of all the spices and different meats is fabulous. From seafood to meat kebabs, Zanzibar pizzas that are amazing (vegetarian pizza highly recommended with a Nutella desert one to follow) masala chai teas, sugar cane juices, gyro kebabs in hot bread. The atmosphere is lively & local. A must visit while staying in stone town.
