You wanna bite... be at Liman today !!

Posted by Liman on Wednesday, 7 June 2017

Placed outside the city center, in Dambwa neighbourhood, Liman is a cool place to hang out, a bit outside the touristic path. It is mostly locals who live in Dambwa who would choose to party here as it’s a bit further from the center and from the very touristic area. They are usually open until midnight. The design of the place is basic, but the atmosphere is very lively, full of friendly people.
