One of the greatest burgers i had in my life. Shame for the smell of cigarette inside but a good place for a beer with friends.

George and Dragon is an institution in Dar es Salaam, and probably the primary place that expatriates in Masaki and wealthy Tanzanians congregate. The extensive menu includes grilled meat and skewers, traditional British pub fare, pizzas, and bar snacks. There are many vegetarian options, and the vegetable skewers and chips are a simple but relatively salubrious meal. Pizzas are greasy... More

Upon entering George & Dragon you could be in any Irish Pub but going through the back door blows your mind away at this hidden paradise party place! Excellent food, even South African Boerewors Rolls :) Great great great for watching sports and just fabulous overall!

Narnia is really what it alludes to when youre in. A totally serene environment which livens up as the crowd does, though in a more refind way. I always enjoyed my nights there. Friendly staff too

The main bar is 'typical' pub. Then you go inside and there are high tables and a big sports viewing screen. Then out into the massive courtyard/ garden where there is music and revelry, and then beyond that a big barn which largely caters for special sporting events. Rugby is big. Football too. There is draught beer and burgers and... More

Hadn't been for a couple of months, since a reasonable but not outstanding Sunday lunch. Yesterday, had the grilled snapper fillet special, the fish of a good size and was absolutely superb. Juicy and full of flavour but not overspiced, veggies a bit meagre but adequate. Only real downside was the Castle draught, someone needs to manage the kegs and... More

Nice atmosphere but the food was not up to the usual high standards. The steak was all sinew! The veggies were greasy and the chicken bland. Also it was cold! Not the best experience I have had here!
