Rohobot is a perfect place to have a casual dinner and drinks with friends. The drinks are cheap and the good is tasty with a selection of dishes served in the authentic style.

We are in no way specialists in Ethiopian food, but what we were served was perfectly edible and looked rather exotic. Honey wine was delicious, and if I were to go again, I'd choose more meat dishes over vegetarian ones (but that's pure personal preference). The prices are clearly aimed at tourists, but nevertheless are rather affordable.

It was an adventure finding this place but the food was very good. Traditional Ethiopian. The added plus was they helped call a cab to get home. I would go there again!

... probably the best ethiopian food I had outside Ethiopia, to be hones. They've changed their location, they are now close to Wonder Workshop on the Peninsula.

The new venue is even more attractive and homey than before. The new address is in a part of Dar where tourists will hardly ever go. It's now at 144 Ali Bin Said Street, in Namanga district, next to Wonder Workshop--very famous place locally, so use that as your landmark. Numbers to call: +255 784 235 126 and +255 784... More

Really yummy food and great service. They were quick to light mosquito coils under my chair and even lent me some repellant. A friend and I split a vegetarian meal. The food was fresh and delicious and very reasonably priced.

You have two choices for Ethiopian food in Dar es Salaam: Rohobot and Addis in Dar. If you are looking for atmosphere, presentation, and great honey wine, Addis in Dar is your choice. If, however, you are looking for better and more authentic Ethiopian food for a more affordable price, Rohobot is definitely the clear winner. Rohobot is a simple... More

They have awesome food at a really reasonable price, especially if you pick one of the platters for 2-3 people. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dar. I even celebrated my birthday here :) it's great for large groups.

without doubt the best food quality i've had anywhere in Dar of any cuisine. simple, clean, charming, casual venue, traditional seating and table setting which is very characteristic in the Ethiopian style. The owner took care of our table with clear minded and efficient waitresses in support. All was of very high standard. The different dishes were distinctively seasoned, the... More
