The Awards installment of Kampala Restaurant Week was instated to act as the stimulant and incentive for the Participating Restaurants to go over above what’s expected of them, to profoundly excel in their culinary art and collectively raise the standard of Uganda’s hospitality industry.

In the inaugural 2015 Edition, Yujo Izakaya deservedly emerged as the People’s Choice Top Restaurant for the week as they grabbed the week by the horns and took Kampala on an experimental culinary journey.

For 2016, we’ve slightly broadened the awards scope and attracted the support of Chaine des Rottisseurs, the world’s oldest and most credible gastronomic society, as our Dining Authority and Judges for Kampala Restaurant Week 2016. We’re leveraging the distinctive character, knowledge and experience of this society to enable us establish a more accurate depiction of who the remarkable Restaurant performers are.
