Kibanda is a unique way of eating out that is rapidly gaining popularity amongst foodies.

It’s actually a traditional Swahili term that refers to outdoor restaurants, usually located near a beach.

The concept is simple: customers purchase a wooden table and chairs from the Kibanda and then cook their own food on a charcoal grill, often with the help of the Kibanda’s staff.

Kibanda stands are typically located on the beach and offer an array of fresh seafood, vegetables, and other items that can be cooked on the grill.

Customers can also purchase drinks such as soda, beer, and wine.

The atmosphere of a Kibanda is quite social, as customers are encouraged to share their meals with others.
