Average pizza early on followed by a night of over pricedwarm beer constant harrasment by girls and way too many security guys in suits taking bribes from afore-mentioned hookers....not for the family... ok if you are into that kind of thing. If you are into genuine sleaze then head to Gabalaga where at least the beer is cold and cheap

If there's one thing worse than cheap and nasty, it's expensive and tasteless. And that's Cayenne in a nutshell. The service is slow, the pizzas are soggy, the drinks are expensive, and the clientele is over-friendly....... And it takes a long time to get your change when you pay the bill. Kampala has many better options for an evening out.

Great evening Ambience. Lots of music and modern lighting. Unfortunately good service is lacking. We waited over 45minutes to be served on a busy Friday night and a dead Sunday afternoon. We had 4 different servers on Friday for dinner, each conveniently disappearing having made half orders and never to return. It was quite annoying watching servers help patrons rake... More

Very impressed with this restaurant. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is really good and resonably priced. A great place to go if you are looking for a party vibe, as well as a relaxing time out.

As a restaurant the food was mediocre, my pizza tasted little different from the box it came from. The bar/nightclub is overpriced, the music predictable and the clientèle in the main wanabees that think this kind of place is the hight of chic. Unless you are looking for a certain kind of lady or to experience Essex night-life circa 1980... More

Met up with some friends here and ordered the kuku pizza and piripiri chips. The food was lovely as always but the service seemed a little slow. The only downside was we ordered ice cream and on the menu it is shown in a cone but ours arrived in a bowl we asked why and was told only delivery is... More

I ordered out. Took a vegetarian pizza with an interesting name. Bomba. It was great tasting. Could have had a little more tomato.
