Kim’s restaurant is a very nice family-owned restaurant. Everything is made from scratch, so be patient. The chairs and tables are set in sand and it is very cosy. The best part is that it is so shaded that even on a hot day it is very cool inside. You can get good views of the villagers drying seaweed next door. I was even treated to fresh coconut milk when they climbed the nearest tree and cut one down for me! I ordered the pasta and was served with a great tasting dish and good sized portions. The family are very nice and you become a ‘Rafiki’ – friend, after eating there. A real oasis of peace on hot days.
Favorite Dish: Pasta - served with small potatos. Really fills you up.

There are 2 Dalla Dallas that serve Jambiani. One is the 309 which is decorated with its support of Arsenal football club. The other, whose number I cannot remember, supports Liverpool. If you want to go to Stone Town the Dalla Dalla leaves before 6am and only goes once a day. Costs are pennies. 100-200 shillings for local areas.
I don not know if this information will help you because they are always overloaded, even with people sitting on the roof! The one time I found one with room, it was stopping for the day!
I think Dalla must be the word for dangerous as they always say it twice. They are interesting to watch, but I wouldn’t want to travel in one farther than the village.

During my stay in the village I met exactly 0 people trying to sell me something. This is a family oriented, conservative Muslim village with fantastic natural beauty. The children play and go to school and the younger adults go to work. Older people talk about life and everyone is happy to see a visitor.
So what is the trap? Every hotel. I was the only tourist that ever got out of a vehicle and/or hotel and actually walked around. I was treated with respect, amazement, gratitude and friendship.
Lay in the sun if you must, but what are you doing in the afternoon? Go for a walk. If you don’t have 20-50 new friends (Rafiki) in an hour, you have not walked enough!
There is no crime, no street sellers, and no beach boys. Just dress respectfully for your walk.
Do not get caught in the hotel trap.
Unique Suggestions: Wear good boots/shoes during the rainy season.
