Great local experience!

The only challenge of eating at Khan's BBQ is to get over the the first impression of a grill in the middle of a garage. Besides that, Khan's BBQ serve a delicious grilled chicken with salad and fries. The service is also excellent, although they won't provide you a knife - you are expected to eat... read more

Great Indian BBQ right on the street which gives it the most authentic feeling. The staff was super friendly and helpful! Would definitely go again.

Khan's did not disappoint! The variety of salads was a nice surprise and the nhan may have been better than any I had in India! Chicken and beef were great as well. Definitely worth a visit!

When searching for a restaurant in Arusha, you should definitely visit Khans Bbq. Owner knows how to handle "muzungus", really good value for money. When it's your first visit you can ask for a set "beginners menu".

Friendly service and delicious food is just what you get when you come to Khan's. They have a selection of fried food to pick from such as samosas and lentil balls and their BBQ selection which comes with a variety salads and chicken/kebab meat. Definitely worth a visit!

It was great to try the 'bonnet BBQ', Khan's is an auto shop during the day and BBQ provider of a night. Food was hot and spicy, you sit road side and see Arusha of a night. The competing call to prayer from nearby mosques was a bonus.

I am a local in Arusha. This place is great (and I've been going here for almost 11 years, on and off), it's chicken is cooked perfectly for that grilled/indian type food, and the owners are amazing. Throughout the years we have brought groups here it eat (ranging from 10-40 people) and the service is quick and professional, yet comfortable... More

Delicious, locally authentic Swahili-style barbecue served in a street food atmosphere. Not for the squeamish...served on curbside grills at an outdoor sidewalk table. Tasty, plentiful, and cheap.
