Call me strange but I love the fact that this place is by the side of a busy road. The car sounds add to the ambience. The place is busy and the piping hot pizzas come flying out of the wood burning oven. It's no frills just great pizzas and no nonsense service.

I am not overly fond of pizza in general but Palm Cafe is a good pizza place in Kabalagala. It is not too expensive and really worth going if you need something fast. I haven't had it delivered to the house, but you can call in and then pick it up. It is a wood oven which is nice and... More

Nice pizzas, arrive relatively quickly; however, I think they are the lazy option and would much rather head out to Cafe Roma most of the time. Also, the first time you asked for delivery is a nightmare based on Uganda's lack of house numbers, street names and good roads; they usually remember after the first time.

Visited with Kampala residents and it was recommended by many otter locals as well. Simple place, extensive pizza menu, good garlic bread. Good service ... they had run out of white wine but after a bit of persuasion, a member of staff went along and bought a bottle from the local supermarket, put it in the freezer and packed ice...

We've been to Kampala three times and this is a nice addition to our restaurant selections. They deliver, which comes in handy when you have a broken leg! We really enjoyed our pizza and so did the rest of our team.

Some people love Palm Cafe pizza. For me, it's very lacking in sauce and flavor. I've had better frozen pizzas! Many people buy from here because it is inexpensive, and many friends of mine do like it. But for me, it's nothing special. There's much better pizza in Kampala.

There are no thrills at this Pizza joint, but you mouth will dance and sing! By far this is the best brick oven pizza in the country. Simple wooden tables and chairs almost picnic still, but there is nothing simple about the pizza. We have stated ordering it to go and enjoying it at home, and I think I'm starting... More

This place is about Pizza. I don't even know if they do anything else. But that does not matter as all you eat there is Pizza. And the Pizza they do is good. Variety is big and you can add and remove ingredients at a modest surcharge. I was happy with every type I had there, but the minced meat... More

This is a very unassuming restaurant on Muyenga road close to the heart of Kabalagala well worth a visit and have been there three times already. Suggest you stick with the pizza and like every one says they good and outside sitting off the road so that nice. If you live in the area this is a must go to... More
