A red carpet will be rolled out to guests tonight at the reopening of Garwe Restaurant located in Eastlea headlined by South African reality TV star and musician Kelly Khumalo of the Empini fame.

The restaurant had closed doors in 2018 to pave way for massive renovations following USD2 million capital injection as Zimbabwe prepares for post-Covid 19 era.

Previously, Garwe Restaurant was popular among diners for its signature traditional dishes.
The relaunch has not only brought back the traditional dishes but also an addition of western styles on the menu, a real treat for gastronomic adventure. The revamped Garwe Restaurant can sit 200 diners at any given time enjoying the environment while observing the Covid-19 protocols.

Added to this, Garwe Restaurant now boasts a well stocked bar for those who love to sample different cuisines and drink alcoholic beverages.
