A nice place to spend and evening or watch sports. Good ambience and great food. Melanie is always very helpful and ensures that everything is good. Would have been better if there was a live band and light music being played. Great view of Kigali...More

Had dinner there yesterday with a colleague. Food took a very long time to arrive but was very good once there (we both had the whole fish and stir fry vegetables). The waiters were all very helpful and friendly, and were quite apologetic about how...More

A friend and I stumbled upon Papyrus while wandering around Kigali. It was a lovely place to relax and watch the sunset over drinks. However, we were surprised at how pricey it was! Service was good, but overall not worth it for the expensive bill.

Very nice and leaning forwards fancy atmosphere. Beware of the meat dim sum/platter which were bad (meat super cooked and tasteless). The rest of the food was good yet quiet pricey.
