The food is amazing. It is best to go around lunch time as the food options become less later in the day. They also have the best samosas. Also give the shrimp curry a try.

Its a busy place & the waitstaff is great (very friendly) at helping you navigate the options. Based on the reviews I was expecting something fantastic. I would say the food is good, but nothing special for the price. Its convenient if you're out shopping and seeing the sights.

We were lucky enough to score accommodation across the street from Lukmaan. It's a bit of a walk from the beach, but next door to the Slave Market Museum. We were so bowled over by our first dinner, we ate most meals here during our three day stay in Stone Town. The fish and traditional Swahili dishes are, not surprisingly, the best choices. There are a few dishes that are not stellar but nothing is a dud as far as we were concerned. Breakfast also has lots of choice; I ate octopus soup, because I wanted to. The staff are a bonus. Most are attentive, quick and smiley. So atmospheric and tasty. No alcohol served and a few skinny cats might pop up.
