This has been a hang-out of choice, first by accident as I was staying next door (Mangro hotel) and basically just tried it out. They have some amazing biryani, excellent fish and fresh juice and a variety of drinks. Very courteous employees who will attend to you soon as you walk in.
Only care to take is if you are eating there past 5pm, you might want to dab on some repellant as mosquitoes come out, and the sitting area is an open space. That aside, the culinary experience is authentically coastal. Enjoy

We saw this place on our way back from a few days. We had eaten in five different supposed to be affordable but this was one of the best meals I had in diani. We ate fish,(samaki wa kupaka) and brown chapati. The chapati were well done and a good size.
The fish was a medium size but it was well done and the sauce ,coconut sauce applied on the fish was delicious. The place is simple but the meal and price is a good match.Better than most budget restaurants around. Do something about the flies though.

If you want to sample mouth watering and finger licking African cuisine, the Swahili Pot is the place to visit for all your meals. Since most hotels in Diani offer half board meals, this gives you an opportunity to sample fish, rice, beef and other dishes made in a special way.

On the way to Ukunda, this is a great place to try some nice fish and local dishes in a quiet setting. Much better quality of food and value for money than the places at the beach.
