Incredible BBQ, great food and great service. We all loved Mambos selection of barbeque chicken and crispy chicken. Pick your favourite buddy and go to Mambos. Dinner at mambos combined with a Creme Stone ice cream next is the definition of the best day ever. Many thanks to the wonderful owners. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhsante.

Not quite like the family type but more like a late nite fast food street joint, food so fast yet very tasty and freshly prepared, real value for money.

The taste of barbecue is too good especially if you love chilies but the portion isnt enough like u need to order extra fires or naan but if I had to rate the taste of food I would give 9/10. Service is 7.5/10

We stayed at the Econolodge which is about a 2min walk from this street food place so great for access and ease. The food was excellent - freshly cooked and very very tasty. We had the Mamboz mixed special and also the piri piri chicken wings to start which were excellent. The manager was also very welcoming and very helpful.... More

Mamboz should employ staff who keep an eye on proper takeaway food and dine in.. When you come home and open the parcel...what you see is not your order...not 1st or 2nd time...most of the time ..either chicken is not what you wanted or the chips are dipped in oil for years or cold as hell.. Last time took takeaway... More

I really do not understand how a place like this is rates so high on TA. Probably this should be listed not in the restaurant but in the street food list. Quite ordinary food (bbq) and very very poor setting and enviroment. Price is reasonable.

HI, Thank you for your candid review. We are sorry that our restaurant did not meet your standards as far the ambiance and environment. It is true we are merely a street based BBQ placed on a corner of Libya Street and Morogoro Road. Reviews on Tripadvisor are merely based personal reviews of people based on their experiences and not... More

Excellent barbecued and fried foods. A minutes walk from the Econolodge and Safari Inn. Fried Changu is definitely worth a try.

I read the reviews then wondered when I arrived. I was also skeptical about the busy streetside corner. Service as everywhere in Tanzania wasn't fast but I'm becoming accustomed to slowing down for the time taken to freshly cook everything. I was travelling with 3 other friends. 3 of us had the Mamboz special - a mix of beef mishkaki,... More
