Went here while walking through that area of Zanzibar and while browsing we walked into Surti and Sons. Very friendly service and buying the shoes and fitting them took around 5-8 minutes. Quick good and very friendly service. Small but good.

This family made very quality shoes in this shop. Prices are fixed, but still not expensive. They are very friendly with all customers. Must come in this shop to buy high quality shoes.
