    Green Garden Restaurant

    Surrounded by colourful murals and potted palms, the Green Garden is an oasis of culinary delight set in an Italian-themed courtyard. As you would expect, it's an expat hotspot and the word is that the tilapia in spinach and coconut sauce is the way to go. Be prepared to wait a long time for your meal.

    Sunjeel Palace

    This formal, dark and spicy Indian restaurant serves superb, real-deal curries. Portion sizes are decent and if you mop up all the gravy with a freshly baked butter naan, you’ll be as satisfied as Ganesh himself.

    Rex Restaurant

    Just 400m from the Sekenani Gate, this casual roadside shack has a few tables out the back where they serve up breakfasts, home-baked bread, vegetables with rice or ugali (made from maize or cassava flour) and goat stew.

    Will’s Pub & Restaurant

    Looks and feels like an English pub, with similarly heavyweight food – steak and fried breakfasts – but it also produces a few African dishes of the ugali (made from maize or cassava flour) and beef-stew ilk. The big-screen TV makes it a great place for a cold beer and the low-key vibe makes it a safe spot for solo female travellers.

    The Laughing Buddha

    The Laughing Buddha has a limited menu (made even more so by the fact that half the items probably won't be available) of pastas, pizzas and chips in dozens of different flavours, which will likely come as a surprise to anyone who grew up thinking chips were just chips! The streetside tables earn it big points.

    Seasons Hotel
