Came here 3 times during my stay in Arusha. Every time the food and service was very good. Great location by the big Nakumatt supermarket, with shops, bars and restaurants around.

The impression I had from my visit at Taste of Mexico was bland, and that refers to the place (just another one of several giving onto a nondescript parking lot), as well as the food. The prices are okay, and the staff - too -...More
