Exactly what I was looking for.

Absolutely loved this place. We walked in and the proprietor basically said 'grab what salads you want and I'll bring your mixed grill to your table'. It was a no frills, but high quality bbq with great food. It was so nice to sit outside and just watch a quiet street. And yes - it is a mechanics... read more

When we asked our staff at CMF what they wanted to do to celebrate Christmas, they said they wanted that good chicken again! Khan's had catered our staff dinner two years ago and our guys and ladies never forgot! We were so pleased that they enjoyed the food so much. We were finally able to have our party yesterday.

I went there with two friends from Arusha. It is like a buffet, you pick the meat or the meal you want and they prepare it in front of you. It's the best barbecue in Arusha where locals and tourists mixed.

When I traveled to Arusha this past month I heard many great things about Khan's BBQ, from the family values to the spices! If you have a chance go!

We had a mixed barbecue with chicken and beef, we decided not to try the lamb as it's not among our favourite meat. Chicken and beef were cooked to perfection and the salad selection was also very good. It's a typical African "open" restaurant, don't expect posh tables or cutlery, all tables are on both side of the street. Only... More

Great grilled meats and cold sauces and salads. I really enjoy that combination. The owners are very friendly and good to talk with. I can't say enough good things. But it would be even better with beer, gotta respect others beliefs tho. Careful walking the area at night, bring a local with you if you can. Just great food (especially... More

A great place to go after your safari or kili trek and need a good meal. Was charged 12000 shillings for a plater of lamb kebabs, tandoori chicken, and beef. Should probably clarify the exactly what you are getting before committing.
