“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very very overpriced. And the service is attrociously slow, even for laid back Zanzibar. The food was certainly not worth the price, there are many other places where you'll find better value, better food and better service. I won't be returning.

“a cafe, shop, wifi hotspot and tour operator in one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great place in stone town, they have maintained the old Zanzibar decor and furniture which gives you a feel of where you are! Great selection of food and rings including coffee and cold drinks. You can buy souvenirs too and arrange a tour at the same time. Wifi is free. An ideal stop whilst in stone town

“masha'allah habeebti betjaniny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

First of all the setting and the buildings are really beautiful. Arabic style but elegant and nice antique furniture. The setting is relaxing. The restauant decor also does not disappoint and offers a display of deserts and other offerings. Service was excellent and friendly. I ordered a green salad and when it came it first looked like it was only lettuce however once I began eating I found it was filled with green vegetables including aspargus, snow peas, avocado and numerous others . My main meal was a beef fillet on rice and was done perfectly. The beef was tender all the way through and came off the bone beautifully. The taste was lovely and the rice fresh, light and tasty basmati. All as I had hoped and I look forward to visiting again. Excellent tiramisu!! One of the best stone town has to offer! say'ye'a
