I've been here several time and I've always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere it has to offer. The restaurant is situated above a home-made crafts store which sells all kinds of merchandise made by people with varying disabilities from the local area and all proceeds generally tend to go back to the community through the centre.

The restaurant is also ran by some staff who have disabilities and they do a fantastic job at what they do. They are very welcoming, patient and accommodating. They will do anything for you. I always used to pop in just for a bottle of coke or some fries if I could because they seemed to be the happiest people around and this used to always make my day.

This place is not necessarily the best place food-wise to eat, but it's got a decent menu and the food is always well presented and has actually just made me feel very hungry! I wouldn't miss this place if you are in town, go for it. It's a little Aladdin's cave! :) Right, I'm not going to go on about it much longer,.. you'll have to experience it to see what an extraordinary place this actually is.

The Neema Craft Shop is a wonderful shop for handmade clothing and gifts, with everything made by and benefiting Tanzanian women with disabilities. It has lots of women’s clothing, fun home decorating accessories like pillow cases, men’s neckties, and many other sewn products. In addition to Tanzanian Schillings, the shop accepts at least USD$. There is a comfortable café on the second floor with a nice outside balcony.

Food is nice and service super friendly. Most of the staff are deaf so you order by writing. Downstairs is the lovely shop and you can also take a tour of the workshops where the disabled artisans create the beautiful items on sale.

The brownies and banana bread are the best thing ever! Especially after weeks of having no western food.
Milkshakes are amazing for hot days even for someone like me who doesn't usually like milkshake. If I'm ever back in iringa I will definitely go back! 10/10!
