My favorite dining place on any Thursday night in Kampala has to be the Rock Garden Cafe because of their outstanding Mongolian barbeque.

Very nice, quiet restaurant. I made it my primary place to avoid eating at the Sheraton where I was staying. There are three places one can eat here: The indian restaurant, the continental one and the pizzeria, all good quality. Highly recommend

Description
Rock Garden Cafe is located in the eastern wing of Speke Hotel. Set under historical large trees results in an enjoyable cool breeze during the day, despite the hot weather normally experienced in Kampala. It is an ideal place for people on vacation or business as it offers a wide variety of specialty dishes. Particularly popular are the fresh lake fish dishes of Tilapia and Nile Perch. It has a romantic ambience in the evening that is further enhanced by the surrounding lighting. Rock Garden Cafe offers a daily a la carte menu of both Continental and African dishes. Popular is its 'Mongolian Buffet' - this is a specialty served on Thursday evenings from 6 pm. The Continental cuisine can be enjoyed with a variety of South African and European wines. Rock Garden Cafe has to be the best place for Continental cuisine in Kampala town.
