Such a cute place, feet in the sand and reggae music on the background. A perfect environment for a relaxed dinner in Jambiani. The fish samosas and the mango fish are delicious ! And the staff is lovely !

Kims restaurant is really great. It is owned by a local chef who really puts his hart en soul into every dish he serves. The setting is really nice and a welcome change from the other hotels and restaurant owned by mostly europeans. Don't expect...More
