I had come here with a friend on a girls evening out before heading to the cinema, I had the chicken and sweet potato dish which I would highly recommend as a non-red meat eater. Prices seem fair in comparison to other restaurants in Lusaka....More

I had my birthday dinner here and was impressed with the service we received. It didn't hurt that the food was delicious. The fine dinning ambience was something special and is ideal for a lovely intimate dinner. Would recommend Rhapsody's any day.

Good place to chilled out in the evening. Safe and comfortable restaurant. Friendly staffs and the food are really good. Worth to try. Just beside East Mall Park.

I was part of a group of 15 to Rhapsody's earlier this month and was so pleased we chose this place. Customer service was excellent and they were well able to cater for the demands of such a large group. I tried the Pork Ribs,...More

I went there on Sunday, after having visited the Sunday market in the parking area. I ordered lemon grilled chicken, that should be a healthy and easy choice. While the chicken was not good but very heavy! The restaurant is in front (or part) of...More

Hi ALocalInThe City, We are obviously very disappointed to get a 1 star rating - especially when you see all our other reviews over the last months have been around 4 and 5 star. We always try our best and it is very disconcerting when...More
