It's not quite tandoori chicken because it is grilled on an open bbq, but it's close. Skip the mixed grill and stick to just chicken. Also, watch them take it off the grill and select that piece. They build up a nightly inventory early in the evening and some of the ones that have sat around can be a little... More

Khan's BBQ is where I go when I do not want to cook and when I want a comfort meal. I go there on my way back from the airport, I go there after a hard day of work. At least once a week. The good thing about Khan's BBQ is that it is open until quite late (midnight or... More

The food was really great. I loved it. The service was excellent too. The owner gave us a ride back home because he thought it was late at night and he helped reach he safely. I highly recommend the restaurant.

This past week our CMF team of 15 had 10 visitors from America. We needed to have an introductory meeting and time for dinner on Sunday evening. With everyone's schedule tight, we decided it would be difficult to go into town. So we thought "what to do? what to do?" Someone suggested "call Nadeem at Kahn's. Good call! He and... More

I was in Arusha for a night while on Safari and wanted to try the local cuisine so my driver brought me to Khans. The food was great and I liked the whole setup, very unique.

Mountain of delicious chicken (esp if you order the full plate, which is 17000 Tsh but worth it) and fresh salad things (which are clean and safe-- I've eaten many times). Also, friendly service, they'll call you a good cab after your meal if you like.

Some meals are interesing and good, others like the salads not very special. It's not the best place because of the cars in front of the place.

It's is a roadside Tandori BBQ which converts from a garage during the day to an eatery at night. The environment is on the street, it's smokey, but oh my does it taste good. You don't need to dress up to come here but you will live the taste and quantity of the food. This is a fun way to... More
