Spices and Herbs - great value for money and for those of you who have not tried out Ethiopian food then why not?? A very social way to get together with friends, finger food and a chance to try something different for once. Our 8 year old is now hooked on Ethiopian making Arusha dinning a breeze these days. Also has safe, budget clean rooms out the back of the restaurant giving you that central location if spending a little time in and around Arusha.

This is as good as it gets for Ethiopian food in East Africa (outside of Ethiopia, of course). It is a delightful small restaurant with a lovely and relaxed atmosphere, and very good food and service. The Ethiopian colleagues who joined us for dinner were quite enthusiastic. The only major disappointment was the consensus of party that the injera was not made with teff. This is not something I can verify, however. We ate Kitfo (raw ground beef), and everyone was very enthusiastic and no one got sick, which is certainly a good testament to the quality of the food.

Went here for our post Kili trek with our guide. The food was very good and great price. Service was outstanding. Atmosphere was good as well. Would definately reccomend trying it when in Arusha.

I have eaten at Spices and Herbs more than 20 times. I find the Chicken & Egg or Rosemary cooked with Lamb the best dishes. I don't remember the Ethiopian names for the dishes - the Ethiopian Coffee has a unique and great flavour.
