Thank You

There's Java House Coffee at one end of the terminal and there's a small snack bar at the other end. There are a few shops and internet cafes and that's about it. It's not a great airport to pass time in and it can be difficult to find a place to sit. To leave the airport, you'll need to buy a transit visa.

Or grab an opportunity for a few hours sleep and use one of the sleep rooms.

Welcome to East Africa. You are right that you cannot be allowed out of airport and is not worthy $50 visa because 3 hours not enough to do much in Nairobi city.

However, you will find restaurants like Java for best coffee, duty free shops & u can buy postcards among other items.

Enjoy your stay in Tanzania.
