Bit of a pain to access through the mall, especially after leaving at night. Quite expensive and the beer is ALWAYS warm (they will give you a bucket of ice) but the vibe is cool, the views over the golf course are nice and its one of few bars in KLA that are quite 'out of the way' and not...

Boda Boda is the place you wish was discovered sooner for drinks and dancing. Trendy club with big dance floor. Lots of places to sit down, but the DJs didn't let that happen too often. Even has nice umbrella tables out on the terrace. So nice a group of us had our going away party that blew the roof off... More

We went over on a chilly evening. The place is good especially for couples with spacious seating spaces. It has a very beautiful view of the golf course. We ate chips and fish and chicken and I have to say the food was very good. The staff is friendly. We liked the peaceful, serene atmosphere which is good for talking... More

If your are visiting Kampala, this is one spot you must visit. At the roof top with good music and food. The ambiance is just great. If you are with friends, you can sit outside and chat. With improvements in the quality of service, all will be great!

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed the outdoor seating with the umbrellas. Nice view of the golf course. Obscene background music was a bit of a damper but it wasn't loud and was easy to ignore. I got a burger which was good but a bit dry. Fries were good. Was excited for a cheeseburger but the cheese was tasteless... More

I went for dinner with GF one night and the food was horrible and had to be returned. We were offered free lunch by manager - but we havent dared to redeem. HOWEVER, the setting of the place is very nice and in the weekends it is a great place for drinks and dancing. They also have a delicious samosa... More
