Discovered the place by accident (only operating from around 6.30pm onwards). Tasted once, stuck forever. Tasty Indian style marinated chicken & fries. GREAT PLACE TO EAT at night. Andy, DSM

The opportunity to eat at a car repair shop by day and BBQ by night was too much to pass up. The seating is at tables on the sidewalk, nearly on the street. The scene is interesting...early in the evening only locals stop for a quick bite. Later in the evening it is a main stop for tourists (like us).... More

The owner sells tires and carburetors during the day. Then, at the sunset, he closes the shop and - right there, on the street - puts down a few tables and a BBQ, and starts serving clients in a very funny, friendly, unique setting. Food is reasonably good, no alcool, kind of 'buffet' salad. very pleasant, no frills dinner. and... More

This is a great outdoor tandori grill. The food is delicious and cheap. The place has a special atmosphere and it's easy to meet and chat with other travelers. The staff/owners are very friendly as well. This is hands down the best restaurant in central Arusha.

This open-air, roadside place serves only grilled stuff but they do it very well! You have a choice between chicken, mutton, and beef - all marinated tandoori spice style and very delicious! If you are very hungry, ask the very friendly and attentive owner to prepare a mix plate for you. You also get unlimited servings of salads and can... More

Good mishkaki, good bbq chicken, greasy chips (just as indians and tanzanians like it), and a rather cheeky Khan himself.

This place would have to be the best BBQ I have ever tasted! The salads and condiments are fantastic also. Don't let looks deceive you as this is a top quality food at great prices under $10 AUD for dinner and a drink. I will return for a meal.

A must to visit when you are in Arusha. Located along the street, this 'chicken on the bonnet' BBQ location is far from romantic but lets you dive into the typical scenery of the inner town of Arusha. Service is very quick, the food is tasty and the staff very friendly. Let your taxi driver bring you to this place,... More
