Came for Happy Hour and had a fabulous time! Tasty cocktail specials and great wine selection. Waitress was on top of everything. Nice crowd as well, glad things are looking better for Zanzibar. Will return soon!

Drinks tasted like soap

There was actually A LOT of space here, but contained a lot of oblivious tourists. Mixed drinks tasted like soap.

Depressing...

  • No, I would not go back!

This restaurant is so over-rated by reviewers and on its website that it doesn't even seem like the same place when you get there. Three small rooms--the furniture is so worn out, the cement floor is crumbly, the potted plants need a good dusting, the staff is completely disinterested and slow (or even aggresively rude)and the food ranges from cheap to maybe slightly interesting.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
