Hotel Africana - Located on plot 2-4 Wampewo Avenue there are two wedding reception packages of which one is indoors and the other at the pool side. The price for indoor package is slightly higher than out door as we will later see.

If less than 300 then venue hire will be 1,500,000/- and then 35,000/- per person invited. Minimum deposit for this package is 2,000,000/-. The venue will be set up, chairs, tables and cutlery.

Nile Hall (Hotel Africana)
Like in the package of swimming pool above but this will include Music and Public Address system going for 40,000/- per person for numbers above 500 guests. 400-500 guests the charge will be 45,000/- per person and between 300-400 is 50,000/- per person.

Seascallop Restaurant and Bar
Located on Kiira road next to Mariandina opposite the Museum around Mulago Hospital. The charge for this place is 20,000/- per person and if the numbers are above 350pax then you can easily get a discount. Otherwise Venue, Music, food with a soft drink, tables and chairs, wedding canopy lights plus a deluxe bridal suite for one night is all you get at that price. Local dishes are also served. Contact JB on (256)-772-305256. Meanwhile this runs until 5:00am implying that you are free to party till dawn.

Nanjing Hotel

This is located in Kololo and wedding receptions are held in the hotel gardens. You however must have you chairs and tables as the hotel will only provide food and drinks. A soft drink goes for 1,500/- and a beer 2,500/-. Otherwise the venue is free as long as you have paid 13,000/- per person. You should also provide your own music which plays up to 10:00pm as the neighbourhood does not entertain noise. You can carry on with the party till 11:00pm without music though. The garden looks beautiful once all is set.

Arirang Korean Restaurant
Located on Nakasero road next to the Indian High Commission. Arirang Restaurant will provide African buffet and not Korean. 22,000/- for guests over 300. Soft drinks are 1,200/- where as a beer goes for 2,500/-. Ample parking plus security is available.Closes by midnight and the neighbourhood is mindful of the noise levels. You need to provide your music and decoration. Our research workers have also discovered that there is every need to monitor the flow of drinks from the serving point to the guests because some of the drinks might never get to the guests at all.

Kembabazi Catering, Arapapa and Maria's Palace in Naguru are other places that can be given a try. We will keep on updating this section with any venues that become available to our team. In the meantime you are free to review these places if at all you have held or attended a function there.

FOOD – Having Lunch in Kampala is a must for every one who leaves home to go to work. However where you have lunch will vary from price, location, distance or how busy you are during lunch time and so on and so forth.
 There are some really cheap places with all the food going for 2,000 Ugx with a glass of juice at an extra 1,000 shillings or less. Now this is the cheapest and because it is cheap then the surroundings are likely to be not that good now that the price is friendly to your wallet. These places are very easy to come by and so we will not dwell on them so much.
  • Uhuru – Nice Pilau, Chapati and Juice. Should you mess to have such a meal from Uhuru, you can be sure you will be full for the rest of the day and no need for supper. A nice way to save for most folks. There is a Standard Chartered Bank down town, while there you should be able to see UHURU’s flags inviting you for Pilau. Price is about 3,500/-.Given the price it is not easy to get where to sit.
  • St Anthony on Lumumba Avenue and Kyaggwe Road are your home for local food. These guys normally give you an assortment of foods ranging from Matooke, Rice, Pumpkins, Meat in Ground nut stew, Boiled Beef/Chicken etc depending on your preference plus Juice. Price is 10,000/-(Drink Inclusive)
  • Diners Choice at Hotel Equatoria – Now these are good and there food is really tasty. Walk into Hotel Equatoria through Bombo Road and make your way to the first floor. You will serve yourself. The price includes a soft drink and at the end of the meal fruits will be at your disposal. The price is around 7,000 or 8,000/-
  • Antonios Grill – “English Breakfast at 3,000” is there grabber statement but that aside you can also find some food on the go. The food at Antonio’s is relatively cheap.
  • If you are on the side of Jinja road, you could as well go behind Club Rouge on Nkrumah road, you will be amazed of how many food clusters you will find there going for at least 5,000/-with a drink. Otherwise food of 1,000/- can still be got somewhere along Uganda Railway area. This lane has parking but not even multiplex operates in that area. At 1,000/- shs you have lunch and 500 for a drink but again do not question the sanitation because it is 1 pound technology.
  • Buganda Road Opposite Kampala Central Police Station-Try them lunch time and you will be surprised of how many people have lunch here.
  • Joys Joint Wandegeya – With Yakobo’s having closed in Ntinda, I think Joy’s Joint in Wandegeya is one of those places left for that animal for those who fancy it. Zanzi on your way to Kiwatule can still do the trick.
I think we have tried to address the food points but with the credit crunch biting you might get to some of these places when they have long closed shop but for now they are still operational.
