“great food, great atmosphere, Lots of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Frequent Guest while in Dar. This is a Dar standout in terms of consistency of food and service. Visited the Mlimani City Mall location over 5 times while in Dar.

Food
Very good and simple which is what makes it a success. Whether you like your fish whole or fillet or prefer beef mishkakis (skewers) you cannot go wrong.

Service
This is one of the few places in Dar where the service is generally good. Most of the servers are alert and courteous and follow up to see how you are doing.

Prices
Beer is more expensive than your regular bar in Dar and the food though appropriately priced is not cheap.

Atmosphere
Talk about great utilization of space. Small location but so well designed you would not believe the number of people who are squeezed in. This is the same for the Mbezi location as well. The set up is Sports bar like with TVs and great music in the background. Love the place.
