NileGuide Expert tip:
Not sure what to choose? Go for the very reasonably priced tasting platter.
It's not many restaurants that look like a tarted-up junk shop (complete with golden Buddhas, dwarf palm trees and giant peacock feathers), and serve up the likes of crocodile, peacock, wildebeest, gnu, zebra and kangaroo. How about a side of chilli and garlic locusts and crickets? Anyone for chocolate-covered scorpion? But don't worry – they do "normal" as well as bush tucker pretty well here too.
