Nestled next door to the historical Botanical Garden, Baraza is literally the perfect retreat from the hot, bustling city around it. Southern Sun Dar es Salaam's flagship restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner, and offers a delicious fusion of local Tanzanian and modern continental cuisine. Enjoy a tempting mix of mouth-watering steaks, fresh seafood and traditional Swahili dishes. Or, if you're looking for something unique, try our Chef's weekly specials, accompanied by one of Baraza's recommended wines off the impressive wine list. Add to that, friendly service and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, Baraza is definitely a restaurant you'll visit again and again.
