“Very friendly and amazing food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2011

Spent a few relaxing days at Mohammed's where you really feel like part of the family. Extremely friendly and great service from the small staff. The food is amazing, especially the prawns coconut. It is basic but a great little place run by a local family so as someone else said the money stays local. You can also just drop in off the beach for food which is all freshly bought and cooked. Would definitely go back.

The simple bungalows comes with cold showers and fan and the restaurant/bar have few options but the best food on Zanzibar outside Stone Town as have tried!

Mohammed is a great guy and helped us with transport, arranging snorkling, laudry. Great value for the $30!

Mohammed's Bungalows in Matemwe is a bit off the beaten track, but if you are someone who stays away from the Club Med type resorts, this place is for you. Its small and very cheap ($15- 30 / night) but the service is 5-Star. Great food, personal attention. Mo is a local guy so your money will stay in the area, as opposed to some of the fancier places being owned by foreigners. He can arrange snorkeling and fishing trips for you if you wish. Plus, he is knowledgeable about the island. Great beach as well.
Go there, have fun.
