Very good food and service where you least expect it: seating is outside, literally on the street corner. Great grill.

Street food. Very tasty. Culture mix between Indian, Muslim and Tanzania. Very affordable. Only night life! If you want to meet Dar Es Salaam, this is the place. Very casual.

Went to Mamboz at about 8pm, the place was a buzz with street traffic. I had the chicken tikka which was fantastic. Food is great, prices are pocket friendly only suggestion would be to carry some wet wipes for after.
