If your looking for a nice Chicken masala with white coconut rice you won’t be disappointed. Nicely seasoned and plenty of meat. The surrounding are basic but my dish was nice and at Kes550 you can’t complain

It’s always been amazing before, well not this time round!!!
We went for breakfast expecting the full Swahili spread only to find out it was all finished. Mark you that was at 8.15am.
We were told, not pleasantly, we should have come early.
That not withstanding, there food is always the best Swahili delicacy. Just not there service!!!

We wanted to experience a local restaurant that serves traditional Swahili food, away from the normal restaurants frequented by holiday makers. On first impression and when entering the restaurant it resembles a works canteen, but we were determined to experience it. There were only a few people inside when we arrived at 18:30 but it soon became busy. The food was exquisite. I had the Chicken Biryani with Pilau Rice (go for the Boneless chicken option which is only $1 more). There is no alcohol served in this restaurant, but the fresh Tamarind juice and fresh mango juice are superb. Everything was very well priced. In fact the entire meal with my partner came to little over $11. For a local experience with local food well prepared, very tasty and cheap, Coast Dishes is up there with the best places we've eaten anywhere during our 10 days visit to Diani Beach.

We loved the local foods. Someone recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. We even took our friends here for a meal and they enjoyed.

It's nice food, and very local and down-to-earth if you want to get away fro tourists and tourists prices, but hardly has anything for vegetarians.
