First Experience: Crisp, professional service, festive atmosphere, dynamite Indian food, very impressed! Second Experience: Curt, surly waiter, dreadfully hot alfresco dining, told gruffly by waiter than Indian food would take too long so I instead had a tasteless cardboard pizza, left quite distressed! Bottom Line:...More

Visited with friends once and got take away once. Fab pizza, good atmosphere, nice staff, prices reasonable for a tourist spot. Definitely recommend!

We took our guides and a couple of porters to Pepe's post Kili climb and the food really hit the spot. Excellent wood fire pizzas and Indian cuisine (unusual combination but good nonetheless). Nice large outdoor and indoor seating areas. Only downside was paying with...More

Pleasant enough atmosphere, with acrobats. Service- our waiter was the manager- was cool at best. Uncrowded. Tough steak, 'prawns' were popcorn shrimp, flavorless tomatoes, etc. Decent naan.

I would recommend this restraunt / hotel after the manager (Peter) is counseled. He takes the tips belonging to the wait staff. They are afraid to approach the owner because the owner thinks this is ok. Please avoid the Pepe until Peter returns the money...More

After 2 weeks in Tanzania, our group was craving American food. We went to Pepe's. The pizzas are sold as individual size for about $7. They are large enough to split. It wasn't the best pizza I have ever had, but very good, and satisfied...More
