Best Rated Restaurants in Khartoum

  • Sudanese Western: Malaysian Western Fusion Experience etc etc yawn y

    by captain_majid Written Apr 11, 2007

    Very nice outdoor area, with a raised patio and grassy area with "mood" lighting. There is a juice bar and a paved area. The only problem with this place is that it always looks a little dead. If there was a buzz about the place it would be great. The service can be a little slow if it IS busy but it is often worthwhile.

    I recommend the MEe mamak, its a noodley dish of gastronomic wonder. I generally stick to this but the spring rolls and chicken dishes are sensational. A big problem though is the restaurant's tendency to not have a lot of things on the menu. Frustrating, particularly when you consider the tastiness of the aforementioned dishes. Reasonably priced too with EXCELLEMT juic.e

    Favorite Dish: Mee Mamak and Lemon Juice.Absolutely wonderful

  • Amwaaj: Nice Food

    by don-mehran Written Sep 30, 2006

    Thanks to my local friends I got the right address to the right places from day one.

    May favorite place in Khartoum was "Amwaaj"
    Try the Steam Lamb with rice!!!!
    The quality and quantity at "Amwaaj" was the best one in all Khartoum

    Other nice places to have food where "Connection Pizza" try the vegetarian pizza there.

    Havana The shuwarma at this place was nice.

    Solitaire is another place where you can have nice food and coffe. Finding a place to sit at "Solitaire" might be dificult some times.

    Layali a local Turkish restaurant. they got nice food with good price but still Amwaaj is the best!

    At Ozon you'll find nice place to sit in the afternoon to relax and have some drink (non alcoholic) and some cookies.

    At hilton they got water-pipes and it is nice but toooooo expensive.

    Chines restaurant "Panda" was OK nothing spacial with this place but acceptable.

    At Afra shopping center you find couple of places the best one there is the Lebannes one.

    The Momen Hamburgers and sandwiches are really good. You should try it at least.

    Don't even enter Grand Cafe near Amwaaj and Momen! Too expensive Bad service and small dishes.

    Favorite Dish: AMWAAJ!!!!

    Most of the dishes at this place were great!

    Solitaire Amwaaj Momen Hilton Aroos Al Nile Mix Juice

    Solitaire: Cosy Western Style Cafe/Restaurant

    by redsaga Updated Oct 18, 2005

    For those who long for western style food and drinks, this is the place to go. What about fajitas, paninis, jalapenos or omelettes? And for drinking, how about mochaccinos, turkish or american coffee or frappuccinos? You can even get mochaccinos with marshmallows!
    The atmosphere is great and the interior cosy and as european as it can get in Khartoum. Main dishes range from 2000 SD and up while light meals and snacks cost between 900-2000 SD.

    Happy Hours 15% off 9-11AM and 5-7PM.

    Favorite Dish: Paninis

    Cedars Restaurant: African style

    by uglyscot Written Sep 10, 2014

    The restaurant is upstairs from the hotel reception. It is quiet , or at least when we were there. The decor was of an African design with bamboo, pictures of round huts, people preparing food etc.
    As soon as we sat down, the waitress brought naan bread and two dips, We had to wait quite a while for the food to be ready.We started with chicken soup, thick with shreds of breast in the bowl.
    We also ordered kofta kabab which had an accompaniment of bread with a green pesto like spread and rice. One bite and my meal was ruined, just too spicy. I took it home and our Ethiopian and Eritrean maid couldn't touch it either. My daughter's dish was steak with mushroom sauce which she and the toddler ate with relish.

    Favorite Dish: After my disappointing main dish I really enjoyed my pineapple juice.

    Soup wa 28 SDP, main dish 58 SDP, juice 20 SDP

    Well cooked and well done.

    Topkapi: Turkish??? Topkapi!!!!

    by Joka&Bucks Updated Dec 19, 2012

    Nice place, you can choose to sit in or outside in a green garden where few tables has mini gazebo... That time we sat inside, where was nice and clean, waitress gave us their own bread, soft and warm that was perfect with starters.... A big plate divide in three section, hummus and egg plant made in two different ways, delicious. After that they served the main course and we ate grilled chicken, mexican steak, grill mix and salad. All disches are served with a tiny bread that if you want you can make a wrap by yourself... Meat was a bit spicy and well done, it was perfect for me. Portions are big. The avarange price for each disch is around 35 SDG, too much expensive for locals OK for expats. I saw on menu you can have also pizza but on pizza I will write something the next time. For sure I will reccomnd this restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Mexican steak
    Chicken grill

    Amwag: Fresh, hot clean and tasty

    by ngorngor Written Nov 13, 2004

    Amwag is located on the airport road. It's shiny clean, with white tiles and spinning fans. The choices are fried or grilled chicken, beef kebab, lamb or burgers. The service is fast and the food is fresh and in generous proprtions. It's a great place to grab a quick lunch. The fresh juices are a pleasure.

    Spectra: Restaurant and Cafe

    by uglyscot Written Jan 4, 2014

    There are so many new restaurants and cafes opening in Khartoum, often run by Egyptians and Lebanese. I know the name Spectra from living in Cairo, so thought it might be worth a visit.
    The restaurant upstairs is pleasant with wooden ceilings and walls hung with posters. There are tables for 4 or banquettes. We chose a banquette and asked for a wooden chair to fix on our car seat for the baby as they do not have high-chairs.
    There is also a garden extension ,
    The service was good and the food was enjoyable. The meat portion was not large by other restaurant standards, but the mashed potato and gravy [ and an individual gravy boat] , and the mountain of vegetables [courgettes, carrots and green beans] more than made up for it. In fact I had to take a large portion home.
    We had soup as well - creamy chicken and mushroom.A bit salty for my taste but good nonetheless.

    Favorite Dish: The grilled chicken with a mountain of mashed potatoes and gravy, and sauteed vegetables.
    We were charged 100SDG for two bowls of soup and two plates of main course, and a bottle of water.

    Rotana Salam Hotel: Al Nuba Restaurant

    by yurxlnc Updated Dec 31, 2010

    I was invited to dinner at The Nubian Restaurant at the Rotana Salam Hotel. It was a Thursday which meant the food was from the Far eastern menu.
    The restaurant itself was spacious and modern. Shortly after we sat down, a bottle of water was brought to the table, and then the waiter offered to chose a beverage from a selection of fruit drinks or cans of soft drinks.
    We went to the buffet bar and filled our plates from the wide selection of salads , and there was a tempura stand too .Items selected:
    Prawn crackers
    Baba ganoug hummous taboulah sweet carrot salad green bean ssalad, chaicken salad prawn salad egg noodles salad broccoli and squid salad. There were also different dressings available : yoghurt and dill Caesar dressing cocktail dressing.

    After satisfying ourselves with a feast of colour and taste, we then moved on to select from the main dishes;
    jasmine rice, steamed rice or vegetable rice
    Chicken cashew , chicken satay, veal piccata, chow mien, fried hammour, Indian-style cauliflower and more.
    I couldn’t fault anything.

    We then retired to a lounge for coffee which cost 10 SDG .
