We had two rooms for a few days around Xmas. Both rooms were quite big, but in urgent need of renovation, but still we paid around 100$ a night per room. Just between the curtain of the window there was a restaurant table, where people where sitting all night. Mosquitoes did disturb us quite a bit as well since the... More

I'll give three stars for consistency. I had visited in 2014 and I believe the food and service was a little better. It is still pretty nice for a calm Sunday by yourself but it has fallen from my list of "restaurants to impress"

I really liked the clean rooms they had great beds, and pillows, the mosquito nets were good, and they had screens in the window, a huge plus in kampala. I would suggest a room away from the street as it can be loud at night with car alarms. The bathtubs are really good, the price is not bad 7 they... More

Despite from Kampala having several hotels around, it seems Fang Fang management does not care if there is no customer coming to them. If they really care then they need to look into many aspects which includes renovation of rooms where nothing seems to be working (i.e. no water, poor quality bedding and some light not working). Staff somehow gives... More

I stayed at fang fang with family on two different occasions and both times were comfortable and stress free with lovely food!! Very helpful and friendly room service/staff. The only downside and reason for my middle of the road rating is the vibe I get from the Chinese staff/family at fang fang. You hardly get a smile let alone a... More

Don't get me wrong, we really enjoyed our trip to Uganda but Fang Fang was a welcomed break from the rest of Kampala. Yes, the rooms are dated and could very well do with some renovation but the price is decent and the staff in the restaurant were lovely. The food at the restaurant is probably the most authentic Chinese... More

The best Chinese food restaurant in Kampala, Uganda! Food portions way too big. Order for one eat two people! Otherwise, they will put leftovers in a container for you to carry home. Location quite central to Kampala city centre.
