I went there for lunch on Sunday and there was a live band singing. The waitress said considering it’s a new band, they are doing quite well. It’s a big portion of oxtail for me but it’s obvious a good place to chill on a...More

Gava's offers a wide range of Zimbabwean traditional dishes. I personally think it has the best traditional dishes in the whole country with a wide range of selection. I personally would suggest their beef stew served with white sadza.
