We came here one morning for a meeting. The location inside the mall is convenient, and there were several banks and forexes nearby. We all ordered different variations of coffee (drip, lattes, cappuccinos), which we all enjoyed. We ordered food for takeaway, which they were able to accommodate. The food took a very long time, but we were a fairly... More

Lovely beautiful waiters and waitresses and great ambiance but service was slow and painful. Did not like their ice cream one bit however the steak was okay. Its a great meeting place... but you might be disappointed if you are a foodie

I decided to try somewhere new for a morning coffee and my weakness, black forest cake!! Didn't want to go through the hustle of getting through town so I opted for somewhere near. Located at Forest Mall, Nakawa- Simba Cafe is the ideal location just out of the center of town. The service was relatively fast and I enjoyed the... More

My friend had the lemon chicken which she enjoyed very much but I didn't quite like my chicken mayor sandwich though. One thing I must warn is the service. The waitress brought for us the food menu and threw them on the table and they didn't even come back to check if we needed something else or not until we... More

My fiance had the fish curry and I just had a green salad but we shared. The fish curry was just so-so, and an average sized serving. For 30,000, it wasn't as good a value as other places we've eaten. They do serve a latte which was decent enough, and the prices average. The same with my fiances passion fruit... More

Staff are friendly and polite, tad bit slow but nobody seems to be rushed or in a hurry in Uganda! Only had the pizza which was... More
