I've been coming here from time to time over the years, both with friends and alone. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed, one has the feeling of a family-run establishment. The waitresses are friendly and quite helpful, occasionally offering suggestions on pairing various dishes to complement each other. I've never had a dish or a meal here I didn't like.... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time with family and we were a large group. I was amazed when the food came to the table pretty quickly. Needless to say, we have been there again a number of times and been happy with the food and ambience. The service is excellent and we generally ask the waitress to help... More

The meal was quite good. I ordered Hunan Chicken and the vegetables were obviously very fresh and the meat was well-prepared. If I had a complaint it would be that there was a little less meat than I was expecting but it was still very good. The atmosphere was alright, but it was also a lazy lunchtime and so there... More

being in dar all my life, it is surprising that i only went to this place this year!! embarrassing right? well, it was a good experience. good food, reasonably priced and humongous portions. ordering 6 dishes for 6 people is actually too much food. ice cold beers did the trick. the food was great and we had a great time....

Clean and in business for the second generation in Dar es Salaam. Good menu, items appear fresh. Pretty decent service by Dar standards. They make several variations of potato "birds" nest, from vegetarian to meats and seafood. Very fresh crab. The sauces are great and the kitchen is clean. Would definitely visit again as I'm craving Kaa/crab form there now.

This was one of my favorite restaurant. Unfortunately quality of the food has degraded now. Fried rice we ordered was very dry, hard and not tasty.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. It was a little of an adventure walking here from our hotel. Since the review doesn't have the exact address, we just took our chances and walked to Zanaki Street then tried to look for Ella Complex, but couldn't find it. We had to ask a few people before 1 good man went across... More
