    I love thai food and was very glad that this place opened. The first time I went was massively disappointing – the hand pulled noodles tasted like they came out of a packet. The next time the food was very good, but we found it very expensive by kampala standards.

    So good food if you order well – but if you are going to spend this much you could have an always glorious meal at Yujo so you might as well just do that.

    Service was nice and the space is pleasant.

    For lack of a sixth star rating, wow… The food was perfect, the pork mouth crunchy and melting in the mouth, couldn’t ask for better.
    Pay them a visit today.

    The food was great… But the service.. Amazing.. Keen, patient waiters who seem to know what they are doing… Best service I’ve received in Kampala.. Awesome job guys:-)

  8. Visually stimulating beautiful decor and an extensive menu! I was surprised that they didn’t offer more options on their Kampala Restaurant Week menu. I ordered the duck, and enjoyed the Asian flavors ginger soy and the fried egg on top was a nice touch, my only fault was that it was served lukewarm instead of hot!

    I had the casual menu pork dish. Soup and salad were great and the pork was very good. If they had this dish on the menu at this price all the time I would definitely come more and order!

    I had the springs rolls , stir fried lobster and the Ugandan oriental fusion. (😁) The lobster was scrumptious, melted in my mouth. Definitely coming back for more.
