The Ebony Experience

Saturday, 26 October 2013

I just had my first interactive restaurant at Ebony. 

This restaurant is a mix of traditional Sudanese cuisine and international cuisine and it offers the first interactive restaurant , where you can actually order your food from a touch screen.

It was opened recently in September 2013 , just after ramadan.

From what me and mother experienced in the restaurant, the service and the food were both great and delicious.

The Interactive Screens 

             They also offer a proper menu for those who aren't used to the interactive screens.
