“Quintessential dining”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

This is one of the best experiences in Arusha - Kahn's Dining is a safe and pleasant way to spend an evening after tramping through the streets hectic and at times chaotic streets of Arusha. Whenever I am in Arusha I make it a priority to come and visit the family and share a meal with friends. the food is delicious (I especially like how the salads are rated in terms of their spiciness) and there is always more than enough to eat. Enjoy the Passion juice and the sound and feel of the Aursha city as it slows down for the night. Thank you to all our friends at Khans, see you next time!

“This is the one place you must try in Arusha, popular with the locals, popular with the visitris”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Whether you are in Arusha for field work, safari touring, or prepping for or recovering from doing Killi, you cannot miss this place. The host, Mr Khan, as well as all his staff, are very friendly and will help explain what you are looking at and how to order. They he listens to you and makes suggestions. Absolutely the best meal I had in Tanzania (Aursha, Moshi, Dar and Zanzibar) was here. Perfectly BBQ'd meats such as chicken, beef and lamb, loads of options to build a salad and dress them, in fact so many you will want to do two distinct salad projects, and several kinds of naan to go with it. You tailor the spiciness to your level of liking. And it looks to be halal to boot as you are on Muslim street, so that's a plus for the preparation.

Good, tasty food for a reasonable price. You will sit on tables and benches around the cooking stand which are clean and simple, and crowded at times. I would not get hung up on whether this is an "authentic" Indian experience but it is the best "Arusha" dining experience without paying major European city prices. And Mr Khan is such a great guy!

Fabulous food, good price, safe for mzungus (white people) stomachs. You eat right on the streets of Arusha here.

“Best Dining in Arusha”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

I lived in Arusha for 2 months and I ate out A LOT. Khan's was by far my favourite dining experience. First of all, it's hilarious that it's an autobody shop by day. Secondly, the food is really really yummy. Like insanely good considering it's being cooked up on the side of the road. I loved the food here and think everyone should try it!
