New MENU in The Lihawu Restaurant
The trade routes throughout Africa brought fresh taste and nuance to the continent opening the doors to a host of culinary explorations.
We, at The Lihawu Restaurant, have revisited this concept and created a NEW menu blending fresh, exciting spice with the great classic dishes of Africa.

We invite you to come and savour this refreshingly exotic cuisine!

We look forward to serving you!
