Reviews for Karibu Restaurant

Delicious, hearty, and savory food in a relaxed family-friendly and student-friendly atmosphere. Very kind and helpful staff. Really enjoyed the fish stew, vegetable dishes (both mixed and mashed), chapati, and samosas. Excellent flavor and great combinations of textures. Great tea. Definitely try the mandazi (donut) if they haven’t run out!

Doesn't make good impression from the outside. Very informal inside. However, once you get seated it's all good. The owner is friendly and accommodating. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. We were of the lighter complexion; everyone else, not as much.Not an issue. Very enjoyable experience.

Put simply, incredible Ugandan food that will make you feel like you are right in Kampala. True Ugandan hospitality included. Matooke? Check. Chapati? Check. Beef stew? Check. You can even order the coveted luwombo dish - forewarning, you have to order a day ahead of time. There are also flares of cooking that hints at fusion dishes, like a chicken coconut curry that would be rare to find in Uganda, but you’ll be happy to get in Waltham.Their hot bar is a great lunch option....read full review
