A hidden pearl in Karatu. The title says it all, really. We had a nice time, and exellent food, at affordable prices. Will absolutely go back, next time I am in Karatu!

I have visited this restaurant several times and the food and service are consistent. the recent makeover has removed some of the fun graffiti from the walls but the place is still a favorite

Happy Days is a very friendly low key lounge and restaurant just outside of Karatu town. It is popular with the local expat community especially on Wednesday nights. They have a good variety of western and some African foods. Food is safe for tender non-African...stomachs. The restaurant provides training for local women which is always a positive thingMore

Good place to eat drink sleep and be happy with a newly renovated campsite just to mention the bungalows and the children's playground

Happy Days is our go-to place when visiting Karatu. They've recently renovated the restaurant and bungalows to make it even more comfortable and inviting. It's a great place to hang out, have a beer, and enjoy one of the many options from their regular menu...or their specials board. They have tons of veggie options which is SO nice. There's also a foosball table, a great bar, a gift shop, and a playground for kids. It's a lovely place to go hang out and meet new people. The bungalows are really comfy and have a nice porch out front to enjoy. The campsite is massive and a great location for a night before heading into Ngorongoro or back to Arusha. Would definitely recommend staying here or at least grabbing a meal! To make it even better, the proceeds go to support young women furthering their education!!More

Happy Days is truly a home away from home! Lots of really fun and knowledgeable expats who are happy to fill you in on where to go and what there is to do in the area. They've recently renovated their bungalows and campsite facilities, and...are one of the few places with hot water -so nice after a long day on safari! They've recently stepped up their specials menu to include quiches, veggie wraps, and delicious coconut curries! They've still got the staples like pizzas and burgers and the staff is happy to customise however you like. They also have super affordable weekly cocktail specials and even use basil and mint as garnishes straight from their garden!More

The new management has taken the menu to the next level. Great vegetable samosas and sometimes apple samosas! Their chicken pie is lovely. The cocktails are really inventive and tasty.
