Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ate here during our vacation in Tanzania and found it to be one of the best meals we've had. Great fish samosa and crusted coconut fish. The chef is very friendly as well.

“BEST MEAL IN ZANZIBAR!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This seriously local and rustic lean-to is a true gem! We travelled back to Jambiani for our last night on the island in order to savour the spiced fish samosas and chapatis that are magically created in the small hut that makes up the back of the restaurant. Friendly service and fantastic local food.

“Charming Tanzanian Sea Food at the Beach”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

When visiting Jambiani, we were rather disappointed by the very western food in our Hotel. So we went out and looked for something more local and found in Zube’s lovely restaurant exactly what we were looking for.

In the end, we ate every day there. The food was fresh, spicy and simply delicious. A special tip: Try the yummy spice tea!

“Fab little restaurant right on the beach!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

A small locally owned little restaurant, right on the beach and serving the most delicious Swahili food (a rarity on Zanzibar!). The owner is really friendly and will help you choose something good! Highly recommended!
