Starscape

Reviewed By Carl_S290614 - Crowle, United Kingdom

I reviewed Starscape last year, and called it my second favourite Indian restaurant, and it has improved since then, though is still a close second. The range of food is excellent, and if there is something you want that is not on the menu, ask, and the chances are they'll make it for you. Convenient location, excellent food and service, pleasant surroundings, good value for money (a fraction of the price we'd pay in the UK). Thoroughly recommend it.

Michelangelo's

Reviewed By Jonathan V - Lusaka, Zambia

One of the older and more popular restaurants in Ndola. My waiter was excellent and despite the heavy rains (I was sitting outside) managed to serve me promptly and efficiently. Pricing is mid to upper range but the food was fairly good and thus overall value for money. I suspect evenings and weekends are very busy

Copper Canyon Spur Steak Ranch

Reviewed By lordfinsbury - London, United Kingdom

I have went to a view Spurs outside of South Africa and always leave cross and dissapointed because the standard is far below then the standard in za. It was with a heavy heart I accepted friends invite to go to spur for breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised. The food quality was good. The service was fast. The price was very good too. People can use this spur. Its on par.

Gigibonta' Italian Ice Cream

The best quality of the real Italian home-made ICE CREAM, made only with natural products: - we faithfully follow Italian traditional recipes; - we use selected dairy products; - our home-made ICE CREAM is produced every day in Gigibonta factories according to a balanced nutritional scheme and an healthy and low fat content. Last but not least we are not here for a profit. The shop is in fact part of a project for street kids and the art of making ice - cream was one of the activities taught to the young street boys of Ndola. From there, our four shops were born in order to make CICETEKELO YOUTH PROJECT and the other projects of the Association Pope John XXIII sustainable in the long - term. Come and enjoy, for yourself and for others!

Koi Asian Bistro

Reviewed By ColmV - Johannesburg, South Africa

We needed a place convenient to the industrial sites to stop and eat, took a chance and stopped off here in the Pick n Pay centre. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was super tasty. Done perfectly and in a great Thai style.
Reasonably priced and service fine.
A definite must to return.

Food is average, service deplorable, bar stocked only for the night club that comes on later. Even a morning coffee can take 30 minutes to arrive at your table, and it is lukewarm.

Mint Cafe

Reviewed By Gina K - Seattle

I absolutely loved eating at the Mint Cafe and Lounge during my trip to Lusaka. The patio Seating was very nice, especially in the warm sun and cool breeze. I'd recommend any of the sandwiches or salads, but especially the steak wrap. The juices and smoothies are out of this world. Wish I could live there if only to eat at Mint every day!

Reviewed By normanseton - Ndola

Basic bare bones Chinese food shop, Run by man and wife team, Fairly basic setting and simple but functional furniture. On the left side of the restaurant there are milk bar type booths that are comfortable you get a good breeze there.
Food is well prepared and served without any frills. Takeaways are available and the bar has a selection of drinks on offer.
