This place servers amazing BBQ food with a smile. Not only is the BBQ food amazing but the naan bread too. To top it off the table condiments include riata, garlic, chili and some other tasty sauces. This place is a must visit if in dar, and you would like to spend less for a great authentic meal!

Very good tandoori food in City Center. Also too many choices for barbecue food. My favorite is Chicken Gajjar with chips.

A famous, BBQ restaurant on a street corner in downtown Dar. Sit outside at plastic tables and soak up the atmosphere. Although it looks scruffy, the BBQ chefs are skilled in both the spicing and cooking of their meat and fish. All the dishes we tried were delicious. The Indian lady who ran it told us the spice mix used... More

Excellent Changu Fish Grill. Delicious. Taste was beyond expectation. Recommendation was justified with the tasty food. Can improve on service and bit of hygiene.

If you get a chance and you're staying in central Dar es Salaam, you should definitely spend a lazy dinner at Mamboz! All of the chicken dishes are great, as well as the naan, but I always order the Veg Sizzler and I've never been disappointed! Of course, meals aren't served rapidly, but it's very enjoyable and has a great... More

A unique setting for dinning out where you sit outside on plastic chairs, eat with your hands (cutleries not necessary and can watch the smokey BBQ fish or chicken on fire. Service is fast and some of the staff are quite friendly. A trial will convince you.
