We had dinner at Two Tables and having read other reviews, were well prepared that we would be dining in someone's home-come-restaurant. Sadly, on our visit the homely touches that make such a set up work were missing - although the family were pleasant, there...More

Terrible experience! Never go there. I have no idea how this restaurant can be advised by Lonely Planet. The worst dishes I ever tried at Zanzibar with a Grand Finale of dry, hard, not-eatable tuna in a coconut sauce. And a bad feeling of invading...More

Please don't expect a restaurant, but an experience. And you'll have one. The owner lets you into their apartment as is. The surroundings, timing or dining are not standardized like in a business. If you are patient and open minded you'll have a tasty dinner...More
