Found this one here on tripadvisor and gave it a try during my stay in Dar Es Salaam. This is a street food restaurant and they have more waiters running around than the upscale hotel I am staying at have waiters in the restaurant. The food has a wonderful flavour and is awesome! Will be back and can recommend!

a trip to dar-es-salaam is not complete without having dinner at mamboz. i'm a fan of the mixed-plate that has a little taste of all the meats served. the prices are affordable. the food is excellent. service is african standard, don't expect an american waiter. the management staff are directive, and try to accommodate most requests.

i took my uncle who lives in dar...his first reaction was "why are we sitting on the street to eat our dinner when we have a nice house?".....well, we might have a nice house but we don't have all the tasty food that mamboz bbqs. you will enjoy it.

Any trip to Dar es Salaam wouldn't be complete without a visit to Mamboz. To say it is an experience is an understatement! Although it's renowned for its chicken and chips, I recommend the fish - just delicious and nothing like you would experience in UK. There is no sign of the restaurant during the day, but come the evening the place is transformed with large charcoal barbecues, and tables and chairs set up in the roadway. (No traffic of course!) Be prepared for street traders, which make life interesting. People from all over the world seem to gather at Mamboz. Great atmosphere!

I love this place and will head across town whenever I am in Dar. The food is tasty, fresh and delicious and the value is good. I always pick the hottest sauce (apparently some complain it is too hot but it does warn you on the menu!). The manager is very friendly and keeps a good eye on everything and the waiters generally good. It is basic set up, plastic chairs and tables on the pavement (and spreading out across the square when there are roadworks which stop traffic) and barbecue in oil drums, water to wash from a plastic barrel and the toilets are not recommended. It is also in a part of Dar where alcohol is not served. The prices are great and add to the enjoyment. Keep it up.

Authentic Braai in the centre of the CBD with attentive staff and delicious tasting chicken. The set up is tables and chairs on the pavement and half a dozen oil drums being used to cook. The manager ensures his staff and looking after the guests whilst you are free to feast and people watch. The lack of basic infrastructure can be disconcerting for those with more delicate dispositions but the food is really great.
