The place buzzes with activity in the evening. We reached there by 8:00pm and by then the lamb and beef dishes were already out of stock. The outlet opens at 6:00pm. It is visited by locals and tourists alike. We ordered the grilled chicken which was succulent and delicious. The naan was warm and soft. Highly recommended by us.

I've been living outside of Arusha for the past year and Khan's is by far my favorite spot when I have a night in town. The chicken and lamb kebabs are my go-to, and the barbecue in general is the best I've had in my life. The Indian marinade flavors the meat while also keeping it tender and juicy. I... More

For 20 plus years this roadside BBQ has been cooking for locals and tourists alike. Price wise it's pretty much on a par with many other food outlets you will find here in Arusha. Grilled chicken, chilli, pickled veg and sauces to go with, it's really that simple. Beef or lamb is also on offer. it's other name is "chicken... More

I was at Kahn's with friends. We didn't know the place before and were absolutely surprised by our gorgeous dinner. Very tasty food for an absolute fair price! The staff also was very welcoming

I love everything about this place! You cannot go to Arusha and not visit this place. THe food is great. Fast service. I like the atmosphere, with the benches by the road. A nice experience. The customer service offered by Khans BBQ is the best I have seen. OH yes, and you have to try the Nundu's :D

This is a unique place because it sells car parts during the day and becomes a street restaurant at night.We were a group of 65 persons all seated at tables on the street.The side dishes were excellent and the main course delicious, I highly recommend this unique experience

I ate here recently on several recommendations and was excited based on Trip Advisor reviews. But I found the overall experience disappointing, to say the least, especially in light of so many rave reviews. It feels like I am the only guy in the room who is not understanding the joke, or something like that! The place is straddling a... More

Real happy with the food I got at this place! Friendly restaurant owner and great service. The chicken was as tender as you get it. And the meat kebabs was magical. I recommend this place to anyone! Great for families as they don't allow alcohol to be served

A friend and I ate here twice during our stay in Arusha. The mixed grill is very good with Chicken, Lamb and Beef, Chicken Pie and fries with choice of salads(Noodle, Eggplant, Cole slaw) The grills are just on the street and tables are all outside along the road. The food is very good and worth a visit!!
