Tilapia in Coconut Curry

The fish at Swahili Village is very popular because it is always fresh.   We serve whole Tilapia (including the head, so be pre-warned) fried or in a delicious coconut curry sauce.

The Friday lunch special includes fish in coconut curry with two sides and a fountain drink for the very affordable price of $8.99.
