this is a lovely new restaurant where my son's wedding was held. i know it will be popular with locals/travellers if it gets the publicity it deserves. the prices were very reasonable and the ambiance was A*******. i have a few nice photos available. thank you. btw i'd say the cuisine was arabian :) rather than african, but you didn't have that in the drop down list.
