Description: Nestled next door to the historical Botanical Garden, Baraza is literally the perfect retreat from the hot, bustling city around it. Southern Sun Dar es Salaam's flagship restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner, and offers a delicious fusion of local Tanzanian and modern continental cuisine. Enjoy a tempting mix of mouth-watering steaks, fresh seafood and traditional Swahili dishes. Or, if you're looking for something unique, try our Chef's weekly specials, accompanied by one of Baraza's recommended wines off the impressive wine list. Add to that, friendly service and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, Baraza is definitely a restaurant you'll visit again and again.

“great food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Baraza at the Southern Sun offers a good menu selection of seafood, grills, Mediterranean as well as traditional Swahili cuisine.
I have eaten here a few times and am never disappointed, the Swahili seafood curry or coconut prawn curry are always exceptional.
A fair wine selection is available and daily desert specials on offer.

“An oasis for foreigners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Great place! Solid western style cuisine, at least what we ordered. I had grilled calimari that was really good. In the Southern Hotel. Address on TA should be updated since the hotel recently changed hands. Ask for a table outside near the pool. It is lovely out there. Another review said that the place is crawling with hookers, and it is, but that's part of the entertainment, right?

“Great restaurant, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

It was really nice to eat at Baraza restaurant in Southern sun hotel... great menu, great chef, sometimes a little bit slower waiter, but you should wait a little for paying after such a great meal.
