“Amazing middle eastern food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

It took a bit of time to find (the restaurant has moved from Simeon rd to another location - check their website) but so worth it.

Fantastic middle eastern food - beautiful dips, pita bread and North African dishes. Very highly recommended.

The setting is somewhat strange - it is in a backyard in a residential area in Arusha with no sign on the front gate - but worth the effort.

Thank Asubterranean

Hey There Asubterranean,

Thank you for coming to visit Damascus, and it is very refreshing to know that you enjoyed your meal with us... Yes we have moved from Simeon Road and now in the AICC Quarters.

Damascus has also added a new section of Operations being "Bed ou Inn" Bed & Breakfast in with which both Bed ou Inn and Damascus are now on the same property. We will have signage up soon as we were awaiting the relevant permissions to be able to put them up.

Anyone looking to come and dine with us, please look at our website and also we have positioned ourselves on google maps as well..

Went here for dinner and some sheesha with a few friends and we loved it. Comfy sofa's, good food and it was nice and quiet. Staff were fine and the sheesha was good even though they were out of a lot of flavours. Will definitely be heading there again soon.
