I recommend the coconut chicken burger but most of the food is good. Great Wifi. Full bar. Book swap. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely breeze and wonderful views.

We stayed at this hotel but didn't opt to venture out to other restaurants because the food here was so tasty. We enjoyed the buffet dinners.

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.

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

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!
