“Mamboz chicken is supreme”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

I read the reviews then wondered when I arrived. I was also skeptical about the busy streetside corner. Service as everywhere in Tanzania wasn't fast but I'm becoming accustomed to slowing down for the time taken to freshly cook everything. I was travelling with 3 other friends. 3 of us had the Mamboz special - a mix of beef mishkaki, kebab and chicken sekela and azam (a bread like naan). All the photos you see online exactly capture the atmosphere and food. All the foodmwas delicious but I agree with everyone about the best chicken in Tanzania, even after eating chicken every other day! Tasty, succulent and morish. Highly recommended for good value and down to earth local atmosphere.

“BBQ”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Some of the best street chicken stands in Tanzania. It is located near the budget hotels downtown. There is another BBQ set up across the street but it is not nearly as good! Make sure you look for Mamboz.

“So so place BUT amazing bbq!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

The idea sitting on a street cars passing you by while eating I find that risky and not very hygienic but the sizzling noise and the irresistible aroma calling I could no longer win so I gave in. They have the meanest Zanzibar Mix (urojo) I have ever tasted and the chicken sekela, I just had to order seconds even though I was full. If this is your thing, try it out :)

“Best chicken in Dar!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Initially, I was skeptical, thinking Mamboz was probably another one of those overhyped places tourists/mzungus talk about. But, no. I'm now in Mwanza for the summer, and it turns out that even local folks in Mwanza dream about Mamboz chicken. Mamboz easily serves up one of the best pili-pili chicken in any Tanzanian city. Service is a little slow, but that's to be expected. The prices are reasonable: appx 20,000 TSH for 2 people including juice and soda and naan/extra chips. Highly recommend.
