The sushi dishes I've had are very good. Stay away from fish and chips generally in Tanzania. Fresh fish is always good.

Great place to eat and drink. Slightly expensive based on Dar es Salaam prices, but still very reasonable. Worth a visit.

A group of us had a wonderful night out. Perfect spot to watch the sunset. Very clean and good food. Live music is offered and adds to the experience. Service is a tad slow but is manageable.
