CTFM must be of the best places for sundowners in Dar es Salaam. The poke bowl and sushi are delicious and go very well with a glass of Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc.

Just had lunch today. Very disappointing in general. Way over priced for what you get. The fish was good. The steak, chips, and side salad poorly prepared. The food quantities were fine for weight watchers. This was at 3pm on Saturday. We won't be returning.
