My wife and I have just returned from Zanzibar and heard much of the night food market. we count oursleves as experienced travellers and have had 'street before' so went there with an open mind. However as a previous review said the sales pitch is retentless, we did succomb to one particular person called FISHERMAN JOHN' , and bought food that and got a price but didnt pay , our first mistake. We were duly served, still hadn't paid , second mistake. So finished the meal, it was luke warm at best, so this is where thefirst problem occured, we went to pay and you got it the price was hiked sky high, so instead of caving in we stood in amonst the locals arguing our point, after ten minutes we decided to walk away, but gave this FISHERMAN JOHN what we thought the meal was worth. As we went he proceeded to follow us with a sidekick. Not wanting them to see where we staying we took retreat an Indian resturarant , explained the situation about being followed, the staff were brilliant, and allowed us to stay until they had gone, then head guy got his doorman to escort back to our hotel
Second problem has since develped since saturday 10th Nov, on the sunday were ill, and have been pretty much since, to the point where my wife has got possible salmonella poisioning, presribed anti-botics and sign off work for 7 days
So, yes we learnt some valuable lessons but wanted to put this up for others to take caution from
SO PLEASE BEWARE OF THE CHARACTER CALLING HIMSELF FISHERMAN JOHN
