Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is simply amazing!! Fine and very balanced usage of spices brings you the best Zanzibarian taste experience! Whatever we tried was extremely good - cooked fresh by the owner and his wife. Don't miss this place when you are visiting Kimzikazi! When you...enter the place you enter a different world. You are sitting in the middle of plants and can even see bush babies at night. The owners are very very nice and their family as well. We had a drink together at the end of our dinner and enjoyed ths conversation very much. Ensure to bring cash (Shilling or USD). This restaurant made it to our #1 in Zanzibar!More

Great food! It was so delicious! I highly recommend the cooking banana with vegetables. But everything else also looked really nice. The waiter was also friendly and even helped us to find the way back home.

Spectacular place to have dinner. Very authentic restaurant owned by a lovely local family who couldn’t have treated us better :) The king fish curry was amazing, one of the best I’ve had so far. It’s a bit hard to find the place but with...google maps we didn’t have any problem. We will definetly come back!More

We wanted traditional food and found this gem! The restaurant is hidden but a garden oasis. The service is impeccable. The food is out of this world. We came back multiple times!!! If you are in the area please check this place out.

The food was extra good, in particular we had swhaili biriani with chicken, and green banana with fish. The waiter that welcomed one was nice and polite, he explained us also the recipes for our food. Not a lot of lights to get there between...the bushes as it was dark at 19, but if you follow the position on Google Maps it is there.More

Nice atmosphere the service was good, and the food was finger licking as well. The chefs were friendly and smart. The fresh juice was fresher than I thought. I recommend others to visit and experience the real Swahili cuisine.

We were staying at Aya Beach resort and got a tip online about this restaurant. We were able to walk there from our hotel, it was not easy to find it and upon arrival we wondered if maybe they were closed. Despite the waiting time...(they prepare it all from scratch on order) this turned out to be hands down the best and most authentic meal we had on Zanzibar! True swahili cuisine which I sincerely recommend!More

We went to Stone Village for food and it was really nice. It is somehow hidden and the location on TripAdvisor and Google maps might not be completely accurate - but worry not, there is signs from the 'main road' you can follow easily. It...is hidden 3min walk and has a beautiful garden area. The people were really nice and polite, some nice music is played and the food was really good. We recommend you to take some local Swahili cuisine. The prices are also very fair, better than within any of the sourrounding lodges, while it tastes even better and is freshly prepared for you. 10/10 would recommend everybody close by to visit here.More

One of the best meals we've had on Zanzibar. We had kingfish, prawn and chicken dishes. All were delicious and filling too. The service was friendly - very easy to call/ text to set up our booking- and the setting itself was an oasis of...calm. If we weren't leaving tomorrow, we'd definitely go again. Asante sana!More

A lovely restautant in an unexpected place. It has a beautiful garden and the owners are super friendly. The food is the best in the area, much better than in the hotels' restaurants around. It's homemade, spicy and tasteful, a true swahili experience. It's good...to contact the owner before arriving to find out which fresh seafood they serve on that day.More

Stone Village restaurant is in Kizimkazi on the lane between Aya Beach Bungalows and The Promised Land. It is definitely worth a visit. The place is immaculate and a calm oasis set in tropical gardens. The food is absolutely delicious! We had the green banana...curry and the biriyani with king fish and both were superb. Everything is cooked from scratch while you are there so if you don’t want to wait then it’s probably best to order in advance but we didn’t mind the wait at all! Moulid (sp?) and his wife set up the restaurant 3 years ago. He does the front of house and she is clearly a wonderfully talented cook. ENJOY!More
