It was a pleasure to sit back, relax and enjoy short of fine dining. The waiter knew the menu well and made some excellent suggestions for a lovely meal.

A cosy, friendly and relaxed Japanese restaurant in the Southern Sun Hotel - great selection of meat and fish dishes- portions massive so do not order too much. It was a pleasure to eat there.

A modern and stylish Grill/Steakhouse that offers a short and sizzling menu. The meaning of Jichana, "eating good" in Swahili, embraces the flavours and aromas of the original east Coast of Africa's spice route. Cassia, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, turmeric and pepper. These robustly flavoursome spices complement the grilling of meat, fish and chicken creating Jichana!
