We didn't stay here but ate here almost every day. Ali was incredible, he got us hooked on the mancala-like game we would play before the food was ready. Food took about an hour to get ready, but thats on par with anywhere in Africa, and the wait was ALWAYS well worth it. there's a reason we came back every day! this is THE freshest seafood i.ve ever eaten. If we return to Bwejuu, we will definitely stay at Ali's!!!
