The menu has local and international dishes. Everything is tasty and fresh. The waiters are friendly and the service is fast. On Fridays and Saturdays a live band is playing. Big sport events are shown on the big screen.

Had to send back chicken wings starter. Some were stone cold and some lukewarm. Should have been hot. Quite clearly food is cooked then reheated which put us off. Crocodile starter good. Impala stew was tough. Steak overcooked. Caramalised banana pudding was fantastic.

Very extensive menu with a lot of different things to taste. During the weekend you can also enjoy live music and if you like socker, this is the place where you can watch the matches in a very big screen.

Interesting, though sometimes a bit oily, food selection Good to be able to get some Zambian food. Great vibe as even on a Monday night it was buzzing.
