Love the food and the service the staff are warm and friendly. Hot food that taste great. They have a great outdoor garden space and the bar in indoors. No mosquitos when I went there. The waiter came to ask if our meal was okay and I think that is important.

We ordered drinks which we had outside on the picnic table and moved inside for our pizza. I feel the restaurant can work on it's ambiance outside. The pizza was absolutely delicious! The ambiance inside is a real pleasant surprise, well decorated and comfortable. Wonderful easy night out with friends.

This was definitely the best meal and service on my visit to Dar es Salaam. The ambience was pleasant, good service, the food is absolutely delicious! This was home - away from home! The food variety from Indian to European. The prices are more expensive than many local places but very reasonable for tourists. I would go back any day!

The restaurant is a little far from the city centre in Mbezi beach area. Traffic is heavy most of the times. The restaurant is well made and cosy.
