We had a quick lunch here and ate Dhal and Curry and both dishes were very good. Service was quick and friendly. This is absolutely a good place for some honest, good food. Prices are also very reasonable.

I went there twice. For the first time it was ok though i feel it is expensive than the food.. for the second time, I order the same food, but the taste changed. The food is not unique. but staffs are kind. you need to wait for food around 1 hour.

We stopped here with our guide on the way from Kampala to Bwindi for lunch. We had the buffet, which was ok, but nothing particularly special. The outside area was nice to sit in, and the restrooms were clean. It served a purpose.

We stayed here for one night in our way to Ishasha. The accommodations were adequate. The meals took forever to be served. It was just as well we were not in too much of a hurry to leave as breakfast took over an hour. Adequate for a stopover.

easy to get to and convenient stop on way to the West. Rooms nice and clean and food was adequate though they need to lay tables properly and get proper spoons (not soup spoons)!! Quiet even though on main road - safe parking.
