This is not the first time Uhuru has visited the restaurant which is said to be one of the best restaurants in Mombasa city with a pocket friendly menu.
During one of Kenyatta’s visits that saw the restaurant grow fame, Fayaz Daya of Barka a cashier described the president as a very social and humble person.
“This is the third time the President is visiting our restaurant. He is a very social and humble person, and him visiting our joint is a great honour,” revealed Mr Daya awhile back.
Many prominent people such as Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, Senator James Orengo, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, and former National Assembly Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim, just to mention but a few have eaten at the restaurant.
Uhuru has been holed up in Mombasa for weeks where he has been reportedly summoning top government officials for secret meetings on varied dates.
