If you are in Stone Town, Zanzibar this restaurant is a must. It has typical Swahili food. You can choose from a variety of really good dishes. The food is really cheap. A very casual place. Unpretentious. Great restaurant!

The place is busy with tourists and locals. Canteen style where you queue up and pick your meal. You can get table service too if you know what you want. Very tasty and good smoothies.
