Kampala has a wide range of restaurants catering to most tastes. You can find good Italian, Indian, Chinese, Korean, West African and other international restaurants.

There are a number of good restaurants in Kololo, in and around Acacia Avenue. Another popular area is Kisementi. Here you can find different restaurants offering a wide range of international cuisines.

There are also two supermarkets that sell both local and imported food. Fresh food can be bought in the supermarkets as well as from the hawkers who offer more favourable prices but have limited varieties. Most restaurants are halal and vegetarians are more likely to find a wide variety of food options in the Indian Restaurants
