The food is so good we went there twice in our short stay in Arusha. Get a variety of dishes and share, they are all so good. Honey chicken and Lemon Soy Shrimp were fantastic. Only downside is that it is cash only.

Microwaved food, greasy prawn crackers and waiters who stand and stare at you made for the worst dinner I've had. The food arrived before the drinks and so there is no way it was fresh as meat couldn't have been cooked so quickly. The owner...More
