Good welcoming stuff that speaks English, very friendly. I found this place walking along the beach side. Food was just OK, not that special. Big minus it took them to make one chapatti more than 30 mins, it was cold when they served it. And...More

When you arrive you are greeted by extremely loud Congolese rhumba that might help you pick your seat (away from the speakers). The menu is mostly Rwandan fare and some pizza and a few other things. The Thai section of their menu is tiny, but...More

We ordered a couple of the "Thai" dishes and brochettes - the food was good, the view was spectacular and so was the atmosphere. We'll be going back before we leave Gisenyi

The food and the service is really average You only come here for the view or the sound of the waves. Everything else is completely forgettable

This restaurant is built right onto the beach, so worth to go there for the location alone. The food is tasty but not exactly authentic thai. I *really* liked their isambaza, a local speciality of fried whole small fish.

ThaiJazz is nicely located in a quiet part of the beach front. You can sit there and watch the yachts en route to Goma, the flights in and out and the small boats taking tourists for a tour. Jamil the owner is really friendly and...More
