This is a lovely place to sit on the terrace for a drink,coffee or food. Haven't had a full meal here but the samosas are yummy. Lovely relaxed atmosphere.

I always look forward to guests coming to Kampala as this means I take them to Amagara. The lunch buffet is very thorough with a wide range of dishes to choose from.
I can easily say that this is the best Ugandan food I have ever had.
Ok whilst anyone can make Matooke, the meat dishes here are stunning, the beef and fish in particular. I generally have a set plate of Matooke, peanut sauce, beans with greens, avocado, fish and beef. Also try adding a little bit of chilli to taste.
If you are a tourist to Uganda, this is the one restaurant which is a must visit to get a taste of authentic Ugandan food.
Make sure you go at lunch time as the buffet is not available in the evening. Although I have been once inthe evening and enjoyed a delicious Hickory steak.

My one problem with Amagara is the parking but you can park next door if you inform the guard that you are going to the restaurant.

The food at Amagara is great; freshly prepared and really tasty. I've eaten here twice, once from the buffet and once from the a la carte menu. The buffet offered a great variety of home cooked traditional African food, which was very tasty! The second time I had the BBQ chicken which was cooked in front of me using their outside BBQ facility, it was awesome. The chicken was really tasty. The staff in the restaurant and in the coffee shop were really friendly and helpful. When I return to Kampala I'd definitely go back. Try their locally sourced coffee to take away too! I've attached 2 images, but they don't reflect how nice the restaurant is but I hope that you can take away something. Enjoy :)
