Fodor's Review

The name of this restaurant means "the cooking place" in Swahili, and it is certainly that. The dining area surrounds two big, wood-burning ovens and a grill area where you can watch cooks in North African–style caps working on your meal. The menu here is more African-inspired than purely African, but it does include authentic flavors in entrées like peri-peri chicken flatbread and Zanzibar fish stew. Menu items often change, but entrées might include maize-crusted

fish with tomato-butter sauce orspicy Botswana-style beef short ribs with cassava-potato puree. The restaurant offers dozens of wines by the glass, including a large selection of South African vintages. Ask about the wine-and-dine experiences, the Wanyama vehicle safari-dinner combo (only for hotel guests), and the Wednesday wine tastings.
