“Worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Actually this place should be called the No1 ""Streetfood"" restaurant in Dar. I have based my points accordingly as this is a simple street food place.

There are a few such places in Dar that are worth trying: Mamboz in Town, BBQ House in Upanga and BBQ Village in Msasani.

All of them use the same idea. Marinate and Barbecued meats in typical swahili indian mix.

Mamboz is an excellent version of this. The street setting just adds to the aroma. There is also good service as the family that run the place are always present personally watching the show.

Grab a seat - it gets busy so be ready and then try a bit of everything. The Sheekh Kebabs were excellent, the grilled chicken is good especially the hot one, and the nundu (cattle hump) was great but avoid the masala nundu as it overpowers the nundu meat flavor. We also tried the grilled fish which was awesome. Everything comes with chips, bread, salad and chutneys.

At these prices you cant complain anyhow. Well done Mamboz!

“Best BBQ chicken ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Great place for cheap tasty food. BBQ chicken is amazing - the best chicken I have had. Went there for dinner three times in a week.
Nearby you can get fresh sugar cane juice - waiters will even go there and get it for you.
With regards to the waiters, make sure you get their attention or you will wait a while.

“Great BBQ food but awkward seating space, especially when it rains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Fusion BBQ with Indian, African and middle eastern influences. Fresh seafood from the Indian ocean, Asian spices and African varieties. My favorite is the Nile perch basted in tamarind sauce and masala chips!
