In my opinion, one of the best places to eat in Arusha. Garage by day, side street restaurant by night. Friendly staff, quick service and fantastic food. A must when in Arusha. Food is full of flavour and is reasonably priced.

Dinner at Khan's barbeque on the street is in my top 5 foods in Tanzania! Delicious tandoori chicken with chapati and an excellent salad, everything full of taste. Just a small place in a quiet sidestreet, with friendly people to help you and good atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Great local eating in Arusha . The place was buzzing with atmosphere and the food was great. A little hard to find at night but worth the effort.

Recommended by a local. The chicken is DELICIOUS!!! And, it's fun to sit outside on the street edge and sorta feel like a local. The owner is also very nice and helpful with ordering.

Khans barbecue is a great place to meet up and socialise with all sorts of people. The food is good and very many people come in ir drive by to get their meals. So with that you know everything is super fresh.
