We always order chicken wings, chicken wrap, hummus, pita breads, tomato chilli jam, and koftas. Have been stuck on this for 4 years now. We just love it.

The restaurant is in a nice garden setting, with a good view of Mount Meru. There's a pool, so don't forget your swimsuit. A great place to relax on a weekend.

We dined here on our last night in Arusha. There was a light breeze in the air and they provided blankets. The food was delicious, but nothing special. Just really solid Mediterranean dips and pita. We were pleased with the service.

I feel the location difficult to find and the outdoor seating areas are a bit average. The old location was much better. The food is great even though the service is a bit slow. Reasonable pricing for Arusha.
