The menu

Zenji opens at 8.00 in the morning, welcoming guests for a freshly prepared breakfast with our homemade bread and jams and other mouth watering goodies. Overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean, it is the best place to start your day.

The cooling breeze from the Indian Ocean and the relaxing spacious gardens makes it a perfect place to sit down and unwind during the (warm tropical) day. Escape from the crowds and enjoy our homemade sandwiches and freshly prepared salads in the memorable gardens.

Night Time
Every night, as the sun goes down; the food stalls in the Forodhani Gardens start to fire up their grills to cook the day's catch. Octopus tentacles, skewered pieces of swordfish and flounder, and long kebabs of succulent prawns are displayed on the tables next to vast piles of chips (French fries), waiting for passing customers to point out their selection for grilling. 

At this time of the day Zenji Garden Cafe is the perfect place to watch the interactions and meetings of locals and tourists. The many oil lamps and small fires of the food vendors give the gardens a special and friendly atmosphere. Why not end another day in Zanzibar with a sweet dessert, an espresso/cappuccino, (herbal) tea or freshly made milkshakes & fruit juice or taste one of our delicious smoothies?
