Good food, good price. Not more than that. Staff isn't very friendly but you get what you need if you ask them so they're willing to help. My pizza was more like a focaccia but i liked it.

Restaurant is in "Ndame beach lodge"! Saves the search. Didn't have the grill or any pizza. (Other reviews say those are good) Had vegetable curry and mixed meat skewers. Meat was overcooked and curry was decent. There are other placea in Paje with better curry's for less money. Prices are around 20k Tsh. Location is really nice, right on the... More

The pizza is very good and every Sunday they have 15% discount on all the pizzas. The price range from 14.000 to 18.000tsh. We have had pasta as well and the carbonara is very good, but they have served it cold several times, so make sure it is warm before you start eating and they will fix it. The location... More

The restaurant is located right on the beach. Everything we ordered were delicious: Fish, chicken burger, pasta. Their milkshake was delicious as well.

Perched on the beachfront of Paje at the Ndame beach resort, the Blue Doors restaurant provides solid food in an unbeatable setting. Indoor seating (with wifi), beachfront seating and covered beachfront seating with bar are all available. We enjoyed our swahili style food options (skewers and whole fish) for a very modest price - around 10 dollars.

We ate there a couple of times while we were staying in Paje. It's a perfect place for a romantic dinner at sunset. All of the waiters spoke very good English. Try fish&chips or seafood curry served in a coconut- yummy!

In a place where almost everything is charged in US Dollar this little restaurant surely gives you value for your money.

We had lunch here after arriving from another part of the island. Good salads, meet and also asian noodles. We tested the restaurant again during their bbq night and were extremely happy with it. I mainly had grilled fish (cooked to perfection) with a variety of tasty sides. Good location on the beach. A spot to try!

We had dinner here last night and had a great experience. The food was great, we had pizza and loved it. Good service and reasonable prices. Sitting right on the beach is a nice plus as well :) We had some trouble with our driver who didn't show up, but got great help from the maasais who were working there.... More

Compared to other places this is a good place to have dinner. They have fresh food and it also looks nice. You can sit outside and inside. It is one of the most popular restaurants at Paje I think. It was also close to my hotel only 200 meters, so that was also a good reason to have dinner heremore... More
