Known for the Peri Peri chicken, and the gravy and garlic sauce. Has a few other options too. Not a flash Place but an institution in Harare. Safe parking too.

Good service. Restaurant looks a bit like a canteen- would be good to create some more space per table. Coimbra steak was a bit chunky, fries were excellent. I would have expected more Value for Money
