Tanzania 6th still says of Stone Town’s Forodhani Gardens “you would have to be seriously hungry or prawn-obsessed not to come back with change from US$3.” These days that will only get you a skewer or two! I don’t think the Bradt Guide mentions it, but we also ate at the rooftop terrace restaurant at the Zanzibar Serena. The food there was quite mediocre, and the soups were pretty awful. Given the 60,000 shilling cost for the fixed price menu, this was disappointing. In contrast, the food at Mercury’s was good, as mentioned in the guide. This was the first time I had ventured into Mercury’s–I was under the mistaken impression that it would be a cheesy theme restaurant, and was pleasantly surprised by the local feel.
