CATERS FROM EAST TO WEST !
than a snack bar and cafeteria
- - FOR ALL of you out there who thought
that Rozina House Restaurant was a snack bar and cafeteria - well
think again, writes ANJUM ASODIA.
Rozina, is a fully
fledged Restaurant with an extended menu, dishes ranging from the East
to the West.
Rozina, which opens
early for breakfast and does not close till it's last clientele has
had their fill of dinner, is actually two restaurants in one.
The front, which has big
open windows and a very welcoming open door which almost speaks to you
as if to say "please come in", is where you can have an
economy lunch, worth every penny.
From the eggs, sausage,
tea and coffee breakfast you can work your way down the menu through
their snacks (kebabs, samosas, meat pie and cheese pie), delicious
burgers (beef, chicken, fish and vegetable, with even the exotic
Hawain Burger for those who want to try it all), into their rolls,
sandwiches, stews, steaks, pastas and evening barbecue.
The second section of
the restaurant, which you enter through another door, is the air
conditioned portion where a special menu awaits you.
Here you can enjoy an
executive lunch with office staff (they even have an eat as much as
you want buffet table every day during lunch), bring your entire
family to try out the delicacies or even a quiet dinner for two,
surrounded by music from the World Space receiver.
The extensive menu here
starts off with soups, cold starters (prawn cocktail, chicken salad,
macaroni salad) and hot starters (deep fried chicken wings, mushroom
on toast, masala corn, garlic chilly oysters).
You can then choose from
the chicken dishes (Malaysian, spicy poussin - my personal favourite,
Chinese, Black pepper or Kiev) or go on to the Tenderloin fillet made
in seven different styles.
Big eaters can sharpen
their knives on the T-bone (also available in jumbo size) or the mixed
Burgers and different
curries are also served in this section of the restaurant.
specialities are in a class of their own.
A variety of seafood
(fish, prawns, crab, lobster) in different tastes are a sea lovers
delight, while the nyama choma fans can have their mishkaki, kebabs,
khima chapati and chicken tika freshly prepared on the jiko outside.
While Rozina pride
themselves on their excellent burgers, they have been working quietly
specialising in their pastas and pizzas which now have a place of
their own on their menu.
After your wonderful
meal you can enjoy their ice creams, fruit salad, banana fritters or

Everything about Rozina
is very warm and welcoming, right from the entrance where a doorman is
constantly on standby ready to usher you into the Restaurant.
Rozina is run by an
energetic and dynamic team who will personally take your order and
guide you through the menu if you have difficulty in deciding.
They are also very
flexible with their food and can make subtle changes to suit your
palette and needs. Taking every client into consideration, they will
even bake or boil a potato for the weight conscious.
waiters are well trained and will not hover around you but keep their
discreet distance to be at your side the minute you beckon them.
During this holiday
season make a date with Rozina and you will not regret it.
