I was taken there for lunch by my customer. We arrived at 1300 and there were only two other tables of two people each occupied. The service was appalling - it took nearly an hour to get our starter and nearly 1 3/4 hours for the whole meal. That level of service is fine for a leisurely night out but... More

It is a busy and happening place in the Harare context. We also had a great meal at their sister property Amnzi Lodge. The Nigerian sour and curry are a must.
