The food court seems to be abandoned and deserted. More affluent eateries have been set up around Garden City such as Cafe Javas thus rendering it redundant.

Average place. Good views of the golf course from this floor. Both service and food is fair. Did not like the waiters all coming at once with their menus trying to get you choose their food.

Don't eat here. Dull atmosphere and food is worse than Uganda average, which is very bad in general. Parking is silly and shops are the oddest assortment I've ever seen. I think the only shop of note is a woman's lingerie and bathing suit shop. If you are a very large woman.

All the others have closed their shop except one ethiopian food outlet which serves good food but completely deserted.

The food court is not really clean and the choices are more expensive than if one eats in a small place in town (like Masala Chaat or Cafe Javas). The scenery is nothing special and unless you are in a rush I would avoid.

The place is a mess. It bothers me that as you sit you are swarmed with various menus from various restaurants. I ordered for fish fingers and fries with tar tar sauce. the tar tar sauce never came and when i asked why the chef had the audacity to tell me they had run out of mayonnaise. it was just... More
