Good meat

Very particular place in Arusha. Meat is quite good and the owner very friendly. You will find a limited choice of salad/vegetables and different kind of meat. A must see in Arusha.

You can enjoy their great different types of salads while waiting for your order.. I ordered mutton which turned out to be just OK.. It seems that everyone is talking about how good the chicken is. So, I was planning to have that on my next visit.. But I had to travel before that.. Khan BBQ should be your choice... More

I have eaten at this restaurant on numerous occasions and the food never disappoints. The menu includes chicken beef and lamb which is barbqed to perfection. A word of warning about the carrot salad it is really hot. For years we referred to this place as "Chicken in the Ditch" due to the large storm drains which one had to... More

Good food but what made this place stick out for us was the service; Mr Khan is one of the nicest people we met during our entire stay in Tanzania. Ar one point, he ordered a taxi for us when we needed one without us asking. The food also arrived very quickly and all of the staff we encountered were... More

Khans is a true revelation. The best Barbequed chicken served hot. The chicken is chargrilled to a crispy top with succulent pieces. The home made Nans are of excellent Quality. Array of salads and sauces are almost impossible to try out all at one sitting. The quick and friendly service is unimaginable for such a busy joint. The prices are... More

Mr. Khan is a good businessman. During the day, his store is a garage for automobile8 spareparts, but in the evening, he closes that business down and rolls out 3 big barbeques and starts his evening-business. In that way, he gets full bang for his rent. Having read about Mr Kahn's BBQ in Lonely Planet, we ventured there on our... More

The place looks totally crazy, in a cool way of couese. Few tables in front of ex car spares shop, big and friendly indian guy welcoming guests, mix of tourist and locals eating street food literally on the street. And if you go to the toilet you might miss the way and enter somebody's living room. Food was great. Grilled... More
