“Excellent pub in an unexpected location”
Review of TJ's Bar

TJ's Bar
Ranked #28 of 50 Restaurants in Blantyre
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: PORTUGUESE/MOZAMBIQUE STYLE FOOD Lovely for lunch as there is no crowd for the bar, would avoid it for dinner. Husband & wife team run this place together and the wife runs the kitchen. Food is authentic and always fresh. Barbequed chicken is always a favorite as well as the fish & chips. Would avoid eating there in the evenings as the crowds get a little busier and noisier. Price is reasonable and portions are filling.

“Excellent pub in an unexpected location”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Just arrived at my lodge in Blantyre last week and have found myself at TJ's three times whenever I'm in need of a few beers and some proper bar food. Service is awesome, each time I've gone there's been a great mix of locals and ex-pats. All are friendly and plenty of regulars.

“Beep Beep - TJ's most famous words!!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I go here every week for TJ's most famous meal - Road runner otherwise known as Beep Beep. It is a must for all who visit Blantyre. It is absolutely tasty. Another one of TJ's famous dishes is the Linunda strips. Mouthwatering. If you are into chili then the sauces will not disappoint.

This is the main sports bar in Blantyre and the atmosphere is electric when a game is on. Everyone of any team will be sitting here and the when the banter gets going you would think you were in the stadium and not the pub, never mind a pub in Malawi.
