From one of my favourite restaurants in Lilongwe - obviously a change of hands, style, & menu. It was empty when we looked inat 7pm so took that as an omen and went elsewhere.

The location in the four seasons center has been taken over by a Nepalese restaurant, KatManDoo, that was previously elsewhere in the same complex. They continue to offer some of the grills as well as curries, sushi, etc.

Was spending one night in Lilongwe and was advised to go here for dinner. Excellent steak with peppersauce and fries, simple but perfect quality. Price/quality in line. Nice setting in a tropical garden. Service also good.

Having been closed for a number of months for supposed refurbishments and a 'fine dining experience' makeover it was disappointing to say the least to see that nothing has changed.
Maybe a lick of paint has been applied here and there but frankly this is still the same place, same menu, same poor service and same overpriced venue that it was before. If there is one noticeable change its that the new owners sit in the bar, being loud, drinking beer and smoking - which I assume is their right?
There are dozens of better places to eat in Lilongwe, don't waste your money here.

We used to love coming to Buchannons for a beer- we were certain they were the coldest in town! Enjoyed their onion rings but we always felt a bit suspect after eating a proper meal. Kept coming back for the bar tho!
