I heard many good reports of this restaurant, but I was disappointed with the food. I ordered a chicken curry dish and found it quite ordinary and not really Indian, as it was described and recommended by the waiter.

Fuego is a nice place to meet friends for lunch and drinks, they have a nice dining area outside and also inside the main building. Their food is good, aswell as the service.

Great Ethiopian food (with large portions) and a wide and tasty range of coffees (hot and ice). Highly recommend for a relaxing meal or drink.

Who thinks a single order of naan should take 40 minutes? Us either, that's one reason we're rating Fuego so low. We read other reviews and knew they were slow, thus why we ordered an appetizer of naan to tide us over until the meals came out. 40 mins later, our naan came, and it was 'eh' quality. I've had...

Nice ambience to hang out with friend before the wild nights in Kabalagala. Fantastic food, try the different options of Tibs recipes that they have, the fish one is a must.
