Truely a great evening out. The whole experience from the welcoming part, the seating, the singers, the open fires with smells of various meats, gets the saliva running and the tummy rumbling. If you there for the meat(as much as you can eat) skip the...More

Very very very exotic place to have dinner. They served all kinds of meat from Zebra to Crocodile to Deer. If you do not eat all these kinds of meat, please do not visit. However, they do serve Chicken, Pork and Beef.
