The hygiene and customer service are average. The place needs to get some waitresses other than only having waiters only. For the bar side, it needs some improvement and arranging of the stock in an attractive manner.

The place has good food and ambiance. The staff are friendly and make good recommendations on the days special. The grilled chicken is well done and the music is not too loud and not too low, just right!

Good food, good music at night, ample gardens. Good barbeque. Sit in the upper lounge, it's more lively. All is cool here.

We go there once a month for the German immigrants meeting, that takes place every first Monday of the month. Speciality on the menu is German food, which is done very nicely. The two bar areas are dark and loud in the evenings, especially, when they show a movie.

If you really like to relax and enjoy good bbq and music. This could be the place for you. It's spacious acceptable rest rooms. The times I used to frequent the place, it had become a preferred hangout for university students. So I guess it wasn't a bad place to roll back the years. Drinks are cold, which in Kampala... More

If you are one person who enjoys listening to music, this is one place you should check out. It serves fast foods, chips,chicken,fish,pork-ribs and much more, the prices are fair enough. I must add, the food takes a bit longer than one would wish. A little crowded over the weekends with all sorts of people.

When I reached there a waitress was welcoming me and asked me where I would like to sit and I choose the Garden. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there - with the lights in the trees and the smooth music in the background. It was not taking long until a waiter attended to me and took my order. The beer... More
