Loved the whole experience. The owners are very friendly, they know their job, and love to assist! Service was perfect and prices were reasonable. A 100% go to!

If you look for good meat this is a place in Djibouti to visit.They are so rare overthere. You can always order sea food .

Good place for drinks and maybe sushi. I ordered tuna steak and it was over cooked and chewy...not nice for a Japanese restaurant. They didn't even actually asked how I wanted it cooked...waiters are trying their best, hardly. I guess this is Djibouti. ...I would give the restaurant another chance.

We heard that the Melting Pot was pretty pricey. Well, the beer prices were the cheapest I had seen of all of the places we went to in a two week period. The sushi was a bit pricey, but good. The other dishes were just as good. God spot to eat and have a few drinks.

Escape from the heat, humidity & clamor; the Owners are wonderfully accomodating, the staff discrete, polite, and ready to serve. Excellent food and ambiance under the shaded trellis, and a short walk to a beautiful beach.

This was a TripAdvisor recommendation, and I love Chinese food, but this was one of the best in the region. Great choices of dishes, nice service, we will be back next week! This is not to be missed if you like Chinese food!

They have a bar outside. The food is okay, you can risk medium rare here as my friends and I eat here around 3 times a month. Only once has anyone been sick.

This restaurant has several perks which set it apart from the other faux-upscale joints in town. I gave the rest of those three stars, but the Melting Pot rates four for the reasons below. It has a beautiful outside dining area which is its main draw. It is one of the only places in Djibouti that serves sushi, and aside... More

Food was great. A little more expensive than a few other places but quite delicious. Walking distance from the Kempinski.
