    Had a lovely time here. Nice drinks and nice food. The masala chai was very good. Had to wait a little long for the food but it was tasty . Also enjoyed the walk and great gift shop.

    Perfect to relax after a walk through Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. Very cozy athmosphere and super comfortable seating. Surrounded by green and nature and with playing space for children. The service was very good, we could order quick and the staff was friendly. The food was really nice, we had the philly cheese steak sandwich (that came with fries) and the chicken waffles. Both good portion sizes, we didn't have space for desert anymore.

    Beautiful garden setting with very relaxing vibes. The cocktails were heavy on the alcohol, but there were great mocktail options on the menu. The service was exceptional, just be prepared to wait for your food. We had pizzas and some dessert, all which were lovely as well.

    Really lovely cafe. Beautiful atmosphere. Food was delicious. I had the chicken and waffles dish which was crispy and tasty. Good coffee. WiFi. Great place to work. We went back 2 days in a row. There is also a hiking trail with wildlife.

    Great place to meet people for tea/coffee, or work from (they provide extension cords for charging at some tables). Also good food and some lovely birds among the trees.

    A green paradise for food and drinks at the Lilongwe Wildlife Center. Watch out for the monkeys, they will grab your food. But still they are cute.

    Beautiful setting, interesting menu, but it took an hour to get one plate of fish tacos on a week day. I wish I'd read the reviews before coming here.

    Ordered 2 simple things. A soup and a Keto Wrap. First the Keto wrap is not a wrap at all. Just a few veggies with salmon scattered on a plate. The Pho soup had zero flavors. Just hot water, and some vegetables thrown in it. Both meals would take about 5 mins to make and bring. We waited for over 2hrs, on a Sunday afternoon for our very disappointing food to arrive. The folks at the office laughed at me for not checking with them before i went to this place. So check with your people before going here. Very disappointed. Very good ambience, but terrible service, and horrible food. Don't waste your time here. Their reviews are bloated. The atmosphere is the only good thing there.

    My son and I visited Kuawala Gardens today. We had tea and ice cream. Tea was 10 10 The ice cream was so good we had 6 scoops. Decent price too. Very charming and ambient. You forget that your in a busy city. Everybody needs to experience this for themselves. I can't fully express myself with words.

    Great place, loved the atmosphere, the waiters seemed to be too occupied and we waited over 30 minutes to have our order taken. Had to even go to the counter to pay as we were forgotten again.

    Today we went to Kuwala for lunch. Of course the setting is nice, but the food was also delicious, fresh, and so many healthy and unique options. I highly recommend you try the new cafe, Kuwala, and enjoy the monkeys running around!

    The service is amazing! The management team really knows how to look after their customers by constantly making sure their customers are satisfied with their orders. The beauty and garden atmosphere goes perfectly well with their coffee! Not only that with their most amazing cigars this place has really elevated Lilongwe.
