A place which could be very good if they changed the staff.
I had big proem with my order. I ask for king prawns coconut curry and they bring me king prawns pasta. They try to make me believe that it was king prawns coconut curry confirming me with the menu but with pasta whereas my friend took the same plate with rice. (Not same looking, not the same taste, everything's different...) they may think that their clients are stupids...
After a long time, they apologize for the so-said "mistake". And they offer me the pasta which were not cooked enough (fortunately because I didn't eat my food!).

I enjoyed an amazing wild beach party at Cholos last Thursday the 22nd of Aug. The music & the crowds were superb. Although the bartenders were very attentive i was somehow disappointed that the cocktails weren't as great especially in consideration to the pricing of drinks.

Great music - not too dance/reggae/R&B, just a nice mix of excellent music. Watch people swing off the signs, drinks are nice and cold, it's right on the beach - awesome place to hang out, I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Nungwi :)

Tasty, fresh food to eat on the sand as the waves nearly lap up against your toes...what better way to eat?! Can only vouch for the bbq seafood, but it was fantastic.
