Malaika Beach Resort's restaurant is on TOP 3 in Mwanza. The view is fantastic and the air is fresh. The food is perfect and you don't have to wait that long.

This is a great restaurant in a beautiful location with good service. The food is excellent with plenty of variety - highly recommend the excellent Indian food on the menu, particularly the dahl! Do not miss the Sunday buffet - excellent value and great food!

I live in Tanzania...my friends and I often go to Malaika Hotel & Restaurant on Sundays to enjoy a day by the pool + the amazing buffet spread (total 35,000 TSH which is around $17-18 USD). Although I usually am opposed to buffets, you cannot beat the buffet/pool combo price on Sundays...and the food on the buffet is a wide... More
