The Karafuu Restaurant is setting Ukunda´s Food Standart
The Karafuu Restaurant is situated in the center of Ukunda Beach Road junction. Opposite Equity Bank or also known locally as Rongai Corner. Easy Identifiable by its original royal writing in bold & Red Karafuu.
The Karafuu Restaurant was established in 2019 by Said Swaleh also known as Karafuu. The Restaurant is a medium-sized venue that allows customers to eat both outside on sunshine days & inside at any given time. The smell of freshly grilled chicken Tikka or Mushkaki is usually the first thing one gets greeted by as you enter,
Karafuu being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Ukunda means the overall environment automatically adapts, a relatively fast past yet transit spot, perfect for a full quick meal before either heading towards Diani Beach or even Mombasa/Tanzania.
The place is generally always clean and well taken care of, with a vibrant selection of staff that is there for you throughout your stay. We will say though there are a few aspects that need to be put into consideration like noise and constant movement which are to be expected in a town center restaurant. Tuk Tuks/Bikes and pedestrians are defiantly something that one cannot avoid or blend out. Karafuu does a great job making sure each customer find his own personal space however town centers remain to be town center. Toilets are available for all customers which are to each liking but definitely get the job done
Karafuu is all about the blend of the traditional Swahili food and Arab decent combinations which are both usually ready-to-eat meals from the get-go, whether breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
More or less everything at Karafuu is freshly prepared and ready to be served in a canteen-style presentation. Which makes Karafuu unique compared to all the countless restaurants within the vicinity. Unlike others, the food is literally always ready at your fingertips. It’s as simple as walking to the counter and choosing your own food as you wish, from starting with options like rice, Ugali, Chapati maybe potatoes to ultimately reaching the choice of your meats and vegetables. We would almost say it resembles a buffet vibe whether its breakfast, lunch, or dinner
Items like Biriyani or Pilau are always available at all times including beef stew, fish, or even chicken stew.
Drinks-wise Karafuu does not sell any alcoholic beverages however they have a large variety of freshly pressed juices, ice-cold sodas, or even tea and coffees.
The Service Team of Karafuu is always on the spot. It’s a young team – very friendly and dynamic.
The place is clean and hygienic and well organized.
Karafuu’s price value is on the upper side of the cost compared to other local places in the neighborhood however the quality of food and amount of each serving has makes it a justifiable price.
The Kafaruu Restaurant is the perfect location for high tasty Swahili food that is presented in a grab and sit or grab and go system making it ideal for fast-paste meals that are on a friendly budget and a little bit more expensive than its competitors however the quality is clearly visible by both Quantity and Taste.
If you’re seeking an authentic Swahili & Arab experience within the heart of Ukunda we can only recommend Karafuu
