“excellent bbq on the city road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Dont worry the place is not that nice - plastic chairs and plastic tables with no clothes. This is not trader vics!!. You get tables outside the patio and main road (closed to traffic) at the corner of Libya street and Morogoro road which is under major construction. But the food is absolutely excellent especially BBQ - mishikaki (meat sticks) and kuku (chicken) roast. This is where all the locals come to eat and that is a testimony that the food is great and the price is right.
A lot of tourists now come here and so should you.

“Excellent Grill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

The meat is great with an excellent selection and you never find yourself regretting the wait. The Salad however is none existent and all but one option. Not good as are the chips but the Grill compensates for it.

“delicious food - You got wait for what is good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Absolutely love it!!! Mamboz food's great! tons of people!!! big portions and low prices, extremely reasonable (at least for American/European/Italian standards....) even for locals affordable!!!

We were highly recommended by our friends from Denmark, Switzerland. My friends told me to make atleast one stop @Mamboz, ours became everyday stop whilst in the city. Recommended this place to my 'peeps' because it’s been consistently delicious. The servers & owners are very friendly and the restaurant is energetic in good way. We were warned that it might take long to get our food because of how busy they were & yes, was absolutely packed, the wait was worth it. BBQ was a really nice surprise--Smokey and flavorful. No matter what you decide to choose, there will be no regrets. We were a group of 7 & almost tried everything -- there are a variety of appetizers, side orders and entrees -- variation of flavored chicken & wings.

Mamboz is very popular not only with tourists but with locals and you certainly get value for money, no complains for petty things, if our order is late or mistake in fries, no big deal, it happens even when you pay $75bucks for a plate. Yo Mamboz keep it up, will be back.

“A must visit for Food lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I do have to say first off I'm not from Dar, so I did try eating at several BBQ restaurants here... but MAMBOZ’s food is something out of this world.

I recommend the Gajar Chicken, Chicken Pili Pili and Snapper Pili Pili, they are really good... My friends had BBQ Prawns and they said it was awesome.

The prices are affordable and service was great. I was impressed by the interaction of the owner with customers and this made me feel like coming again and again
