We went here last night with some friends for a special occasion.
Firstly I thought it was still closed.
The wait staff are excellent at making you wait. There was 1 person in the venue and the entertainer was singing to himself.
The drinks - what can I say? The gents beers were warm - I ordered mango juice and was presented a 1L box of warm juice. The wine was hot. When asked what vegetables would accompany one of the a la carte dishes we were told tomatoes , or go to the veggie bar which was very off putting.

Such a pity - so much potential - so little knowledge, training or interest.

Went to the Mzinga Way Rodizio. Yes, we expected to eat lots of meat and the meat we ate A flat fee is charged for the meat and a cash bar. The cuts were great and the turkey for us was our favorite. The staff were friendly, went during the week with family for dinner. There was a one man band, lovely. The sides were reasonable on salad and less on veggies. I would love more varieties on veggies. Though the food is great, the pricing is a bit on the high side.

This is very similar to a rodízio in Brazil, but it has one serious drawback to my way of thinking: they don't serve pork. You'll get various cuts of beef, even tongue, shrimp, fish, chicken, sausage, but no pork or game. The meat is expertly grilled, and the salad and sides are good, but for the prices they charge (way too high), I would expect both pork and game. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing, and the grilled meat is magnificent. Be sure to get the grilled pineapple for dessert -- out of this world!

A friend and i decide to visit Rodizio for dinner. He warned me that it will be alot of meat...i was excited. I have never had so much meat in my life the food is great. The meat was very succulent. For the most part and the staff was great, sometimes they seemed confused about what they already served you but it really didn't bother us.

However the prices are the highest in Dar for meat. So come prepared to spend. They do take credit cards which was awesome for us, because we didn't want to carry around so much cash anyway.

The atmosphere was good and cozy, they have a breezy outside seating area which we really enjoyed that night.

The meat was plentiful, although it got a bit dull after a while because not only were there not many varieties, there was basically one taste note for all the different cuts barring the chicken. In some cases, the best cuts were so seriously overseasoned that it made enjoying them very difficult. There is little on offer for those who don't eat meat, so if there are fussy eaters amongst your party, this is not the place to bring them.

The staff are attentive, although probably need a few more tips on how to wait a table properly.
