Kimbo Restaurant (Marginal)

We visited this restaurant for lunch on a weekday as it’s close to my office. The place is very clean and modern without being in your face. There is a buffet for lunch, although it is not self service, which basically means you’re put under the spotlight a bit. The guy looks at you and you pretty much have to know exactly what you want, no time for messing about and asking questions here. You’re almost spoiled for choice with few different types of fish, meat, chicken, followed by different types of rice and pasta and vegetables and salad… I played it safe and chose the tasty looking fish and wasn’t disappointed. One friend however, cracked under the pressure and pointed to a random suspicious looking object in a corner. Fortunately for him it turned out to be chicken and all ended well. But if you don’t know what you’re doing your plate could turn out looking very bizzare indeed, combining things that were never meant to go together…

At the end they weigh your plate and you pay accordingly. The price is quite reasonable: on average between 1200 and 1500 kwanzas including a drink. The food is actually very good and portions not too big. They also have a good range of deserts too, but again you need to plan ahead! Everyone at my table was happy with the food. In fact the only complain was that it was too noisy, so a bit tricky to even hear the person in front of you. Also you might have to wait a bit in the queue (10-15 mins.) as it can get very busy around mid-day. Come early to avoid the rush. There is also a seating area upstairs.

Overall, nice food and very good value for money. Recommended for lunch during the week, especially if you work nearby. They do take away too…

Note: they do not accept Dollars – Kwanzas Only
