A nice family restaurant in Kigali. It is buffet with waiters getting your drinks. It is a great place to get lunch and some local flavor.

We were taken here to experience true local food. It was not a huge place, but if the weather was Ok you could eat outside. We ate inside. It was a buffet of truly local food.

If you wanted a taste of a Rwandan home made dish,this is the right place Its delicious. Its not expensive and you will enjoy the sun in their garden while having lunch with friends. First time to taste Matoke with some peanut sauce and I loved it.

We were taken to this restaurant after requesting to eat local cuisine. The lunch buffet offered a variety of dishes and the staff was very helpful in describing each dish. Food was delicious, the restaurant is clean and the service excellent.

If you are looking for a great selection (buffet style) of traditional Rwandan cuisine look no further. Prices are very cheap and quality is good. Atmosphere is ok. Definitely worth a visit.

The $4.50US at current FX rates buffet is varied enough to overflow your plate with just a sampling of each item. They could use a few more tables in te garden, but then again it is nice to have space.
