The menu covers a whole range of food and everything I've ever tried has been really tasty! My personal favourite is the "goat curry with jollof rice" - it's a must have! Best food in Livingstone by a long shot!

We loved the African food that was served. Nshima, croctail, crocribs, beef, chicken, it was all very well. The prices were also good. For a good meal we paid only 25 dollar, including the drinks.

Been here before and next time in Livingston will go again. Authentic food. Many tourist around but can find ‚locals‘ as well.
