A good restaurant with nice food & staff, specially Al Reyad branch. They've an open air area also which is nice in the good weather. In general the restaurant is good but it's not the best.

I went here beacuse of the TA reviews but didnt find it to be much more than a burger and pizza joint. Upstairs for smokers. Downstairs for non smokers. No wifi. Good coffee though and the staff speak English.

Quite popular place for urban Khartoum community and expatriates community. Solitaire's food is good, with quite a variety. Very friendly staff. Will definitely recommend eating here, when in Khartoum.

Very friendly staff with knowledge of what's on the menu. A bit of a bother for non Arabic speaking people though as all waiters don't speak English.

Very popular place for young extravagant people and expatriate community in Khartoum. They have two restaurants, one in Riyadh and the other one Amarat. The latter one is bigger and better. The food is good, although the quality varies, which I experienced earlier. I recommend this place for sure.

The portion sizes were large, especially for the pasta. This was my first more formal restaurant to eat at in Sudan. The atmosphere was pleasant and I could see younger people would enjoy this place in the evenings.
