Mamboz is a BBQ restaurant with absolutely delicious food and excellent service. The owners are very friendly and take time to chat with customers. Definitely value for money.

“The number 1 in Dar es salaam!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Here you have it, the highest rated restaurant in Dar es salaam, is hardly even a restaurant. This road side eatery is well known for the best authentic dishes popular with the Asian community that has lived in Dar es salaam and Tanzania for much over half a century.
They also prepare many traditional dishes which makes this one place you can rely on if you're willing to explore and tantalize your tastebuds with a bit of real Tanzania, for this you will always find a couple of groups of Tourists dining by the road side in Downtown at night.
Despite the hygiene concerns and other factors that would definitely write off Mamboz from the top restaurant list, the fact that the food has for years been the residents overwhelming favourite and remained consistent.. means, you will just have to drop by, adapt and enjoy the great meals.
Quick staff, BBQ and other gourmet dishes. Dont fret if the place is not much to look at, the flavours will do the blinding. :)

“Excellent street style food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

After coming over with the ferry from Zanzibar we checked in at the hotel and wanted a quick bite before going to bed, the hotel reception recommended Mamboz just around the corner. We were a bit sceptic about the hygiene when we saw the place. However we decided to try it and sat down and received excellent service. After the food arrived on the table we were sold, it tasted delicious. Personally I recommend a hot Mamboz Combo in order to taste a bit of everything they offer but every dish where liked by our group of nine. Excellent value for money and nice atmosphere, go try it out!

“Get a taste of the local cusine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The place is on a great corner, and serve food on the street. great view of the night life. A bit of a downer as the main road to the place is still under construction.

“Special Prawns and Fish Fingers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

@ Mamboz, Order Special Prawns and Fish Finger... One of Mamboz signature dishes.
Have been going almost twice a week to have either one of them and have never gone wrong.
