If you are looking for a decently priced cosy place Sagando Hostel in Michamvi can be it.
And the menu is interesting as you can get decent thai food here. We like!
Sagandos menu is quite varied and you can get Swahili food, pizza, burgers and….most interesting for us living here- Thai food. And the Thai food is good! The fish ball noodle soup was Zanzibarified with star anise which made it different and interesting. And the vegetables where crispy and just perfect.
My friend reveled in the chicken green curry while crying out loud several times ”this was the best I had during my 2 weeks on Zanzibar”. My other friend had a classic Chicken Pad Thai- no complaints there and a proper portion too. As it was many people asking for food it took some time. Take my advice and bring some peanuts and order a cold drink while waiting.
Michamvi is worth a visit for two main reasons- the sunset over Chwaka bay and the beach by the mangrove. So if you are up for an excursions- a beach walk with sunset drink followed by dinner at the fire at Sagando makes up a perfect afternoon. Sagando Hostel have accommodation for 40 usd /bungalow. Good value for money if you are up for some peace and quiet.
