Himble and very good

Humble place that serves a good meal, I prefer it to the more busy and impersonal vibe of the competition

Everything is there as if we are in Ethiopia. I have found a variety of Ethiopian foods with quality. The place is not as such from strategic places. I think, the price is also fair.

Rohobot is my favorite restaurant in Dar. All of the food is very fresh and delicious and the staff is really friendly. This place is great for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Easy paring and easy location to find--right off of Ali Hassan Mwinyi.

We were the only customers there, maybe that's why the food came so fast. The food is just as good as at Addis in Dar, but Rohobot is cheaper. The venue is not very cosy, which is too bad given the potential of the place. It doesn't really invite you to linger after you've finished youreal.

In my view Rohobot is superior to the other Ethiopian, Addis in Dar. It is cheaper, more conveniently located for most people and feels a little more gritty and less fancy. There are various options for vegetarians which in Dar es Salaam is a rare treat as most restaurants only serve fish or meat and many times all that vegetarians... More

Rohobot was our first foray into Ethiopian food and we were not disappointed. We shared the "Meat Lover's Special" and really enjoyed it. I would recommend that dish in particular again. The ambiance was nice. We sat outside, with a nice breeze. We went on a weekday night and we were the only couple there for awhile, making it a... More

It's not really a restaurant you would expect to find in ex. Europe. It's located next to the owners house and consists of some green small chairs and tables, located outside under a small roof. I think we expected to find a 'real' western-like restaurant. But the food and the service was great here. It's not fancy, but it's a... More

I didn't even really think Ethiopian food was that great until I ate here. Now I'm in the love. The staff is friendly and the place in clean and it's on a cute little porch. I went on an Ethiopian food binge after eating here, trying other restaurants in Dar, but none compare to this place. Sure there are prettier,... More
