Simba Staff

We don’t rest until our guests say “Hakuna Matata.” Our staff is knowledgeable, professional,and passionate. We genuinely care about the time you spend here; when we say personalized, we really mean it.


Every plate is freshly made, abundant and delicious. No dry toast and margarine here: You’ll feast on Rwandan coffee, garden salad, healthy bread, pancakes and fruits. We can also make vegetarian meals.
