Tucked away in a corner just o Shangani Road, Lazuli is by far the best spot to eat lunch in Stone Town. Cheap and cheerful, this clean, colourful restaurant serves up a delicious array of modern Swahili fusion dishes, from coconut chickpea curry chapati-wraps to cashew nut and chicken salads, and cinnamon-spiced iced coee. Locals on their lunch breaks and hungry tourists queue up for a menu lovingly created by South African Bonita Blom, who has lived in Stone Town for the last few years with her Zanzibari husband and son.
