I love this restaurant. You can eat all kind of different zanzibar food with the lokal people. It is more like a cafeteria. All food is fresh made and excellent.

As far as budget restaurants are concerned this place is right up there. Great food at a very reasonable price in basic but functional surrounds. The biryani in particular was outstanding. I would say this place is not to be missed.

Prices are affordable.. but the quality??!! Food is not freshly prepared, it’s probably cooked hours before dinner time. The juice was full of sugar. The staff is friendly, but i wouldn’t recommend it.
