“Great pre-Kili fuelling stop”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Hard to believe we went for Chinese in Arusha but this was a great find. Mapo tofu with Szechuan peppercorns, yellow bean sauce with shredded beef and steamed rice was served in very generous portions and very tasty. I'd come again though service was halting.

“It's quite good”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

But not amazing. The Chinese food that we had was pretty good in parts. Standard large round tables that the Chinese seem to like, and pleasant open setting surrounded by green foliage.

“Cheap and delicious authentic Chinese food”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Flame Tree was a godsend for a Chinese person travelling in a country where it's impossible to find tofu or vermicelli in any stores. The food is cheap, the servings are generous (I recommend sharing one of their delicious soups with friends) and the service is exceptionally fast. Hotpot night at Flame Tree was my favourite meal during my two months in Arusha!

“Very sweet restaurant for romantic dinner”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We had a dinner after sunset in FlameTree. I hardly can remember any so relaxing and peaceful dinner in my life. Atmosphere there is awesome, food is very good, staff is polite and tries not to disturb you much. For romantic dinner would be just perfect.
