“A long wait for great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Reasons for going:
- if you like grilled chicken you should try the "chicken sekala". Grilled to perfection on an outside charcoal bbq. Chefs secret spices makes it memorable.
- the atmosphere is really good. You sit outside and can eat your meal while people watching the streets.
- the prices are cheap. 6.500 for a meal and 1.500 for beverages. Remember that no alcohol is served here, due to islamic rules.

BUT:
- as it is a popular restaurant be prepared to wait for tables. The waiter also sometimes use alot of time getting your order.
- if you don't fancy eating with your hands, ask for cuttlery. But when in Dar, do as the Dars right? Use your hands.
- be aware of pickpockets in the area. Keep your valuables under a close watch!

But all in all they serve a mean chicken platter!

“best bites in Tanzania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This resteraunt is the best place for food in all of Tanzania... and I have eaten at many all over the country. The outside seating is nice, and watching the bbq out on the street is fun. The juices are good, the meets are great and they even have vegetarian options.

“Fun Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Thought this was a fun time. It's streetside BBQ. The chicken was roasted over a large pit and the smoke was a thick fog around us that clung to my hair even after I showered. I tried the chili chicken which was chicken rubbed in chili and the lemon chicken. Both were delicious.

“Indeed great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Found this one here on tripadvisor and gave it a try during my stay in Dar Es Salaam. This is a street food restaurant and they have more waiters running around than the upscale hotel I am staying at have waiters in the restaurant. The food has a wonderful flavour and is awesome! Will be back and can recommend!
