A great place to chill on sunday around a good plate or for a business lunch during the week. On week days, the Sushi buffet is fantastic !

I had an overall good experience here. the meals are really good quality but the service is quite slow. It's well located with view to Maputo Bay and Katembe village. Recommended

Food was good including sushi and seafood. Service a bit slow but full at lunchtime. If you have to share a large table they may only take one bill per table so you have to work it out yourself

A Mozambique restaurant with an established track record. I received my glass of wine after my starter so the first impression was not good. However the seared tuna main was excellent! Overall a nice experience. I will be back.

Zambi was our escape for what I call the jungle of Maputo. We had a great lunch with fresh shellfish, and also the sushi is stunning. Chances are small, but whenever I will visit Maputo again I go to Zambi ;)
