“Good & reasonable vegetarian food”
Review of Radha Food House

Reviewed October 15, 2012

We ate here twice in October 2012 and wonder if it has changed managers as it is now called the 'New Radha Vegetarian Restaurant'. The food is all vegetarian and we felt there was a good range available, bearing in mind you are paying around TS10,000 - TS11,000 for a main with rice and bread. That is about £4-£5. The Thali is a full meal for just TS10,000 (£4.00!). The building is a little run down, as is much of Stone Town, but we found the staff friendly and helpful. The meals are apparently cooked to order and they confirmed they would be happy to do vegan, or indeed any other variation you want. This was the best place we found for vegetarian food at this quality in this price range.

Hi! I spent two weeks on Zanzibar and almost ate there every day. It's not so bad as people here write. Okay some of the stuff might be a bit unfriendly but the food was delicious! So who cares?!

The worst food in Znz.. We often visit zanzibar and have eaten at most restaurants in zanzibar.. by far this has been the worst experience.. the food was cold.. the manager was too drunk to even care whether we got our food or not.. Try other restaurants near by .. The Archipelago or Dhow palace..

Great, tasty food - amazing paneer curry and samosas with homemade pickle and fresh coconut. A must for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike! Service attentive and maybe a bit quick - but only a minor gripe.

The worst experience in Zanzibar ever, and we did not even get to the food. I am a resident in Zanzibar and have eaten at almost every single restaurant in Stone Town. I have to say that this is NOT a true reflection of Zanzibari hospitality that we experience on a daily basis, so I do advise people to not go to this particular establishment.

This morning we were caught in a rain storm with our small baby of 4 months and decided on the spur of the moment to go to Radha for an early lunch. As we entered the restaurant we chose a table in a corner, my son was sleeping in his stroller. I barely sat down for 5 minutes when the waiter approached us and we were told to move our sleeping son in his stroller to the bar, we could leave him there. At first we could not believe what we heard and when I asked why he said that my son is a disturbance for other guests?!

Apart from us there was only one other man sitting in the restaurant, a baby sleeping in his stroller a disturbance? We left immediately - with this kind of service we could only imagine what the food would be like.

If you want to experience the wonderful hospitality and generosity and food that Zanzibar has to offer, don't go to Radha, you will be sadly disappointed. Try the Silk Route around the corner from Rhada, also Indian, good food, great service, friendly staff, same price, fabulous location, amazing view of the ocean.
