Café
“Indian-Malawian blend that keeps everyone going back for more. Cheap compared to other international food at only 2500 per person. Order: chicken curry, butternut curry, spicy green peas, daal, rice or chapatti (wet with butter or dry like tortillas), and grab a seat in the scenic graffiti-decorated courtyard. Weekday lunches ONLY!”

“Expat bar with thumping music (usually hiphop/top 40) late into the early morning. Go after midnight and dance the night away among a sweaty, mixed crowd! ”

“Fabulous Persian food at a very good value. Try the eggplant appetizers, any of the stews, and the rice dishes. The garden is stunning and a great place to relax on a nice sunny day. Open lunch and dinner, runs about 5000-7000 per person. ”
