The menu covers a whole range of food and everything I've ever tried has been really tasty! My personal favourite is the "goat curry with jollof rice" - it's a must have! Best food in Livingstone by a long shot!

This place had a outdoorsy cafe feel with a gravel garden middle and prompt service. They offered local cuisine and a nice vibe. I’d go back anyday

We loved the African food that was served. Nshima, croctail, crocribs, beef, chicken, it was all very well. The prices were also good. For a good meal we paid only 25 dollar, including the drinks.
