I ordered the mamboz combo meal plus masala chips, it was a very disappointing experience. The meal came cold, meat was so tough, it wasn't chewable at all neither tasty. Just full of flavor to hide the food quality. Not recommended.

The food served in that restaurant is Indian, mostly barbecue. It is not a casual restaurant as most seating is outside, very rustic. Service is good and fast. The food however is really good, tasty with intense flavors. If you like Indian barbecue food, you will love that place. They do not serve alcohol and do not allow you to... More

This is mainly Indian and Pakistani type food. Indian type Chinese also available. Big variety and most dishes are tasty and some very spicy too. Prices are reasonable too and service is good. Highly recommended.

Good BBQ, basic amenities, quick service, very reasonable prices. Recommend the Chicken, beef BBQ dishes & naan. Some dishes maybe a little too spicy for some ... Overall worth a visit, be prepared for street dining!

Quite a simple set up with Heavy weight Meals. Sizzling Barbecue and an array of options in Grills and Indian Cuisine. Well prepared and palatable meals of different options. Service good and friendly. Definitely worth a try while in Town.

This place servers amazing BBQ food with a smile. Not only is the BBQ food amazing but the naan bread too. To top it off the table condiments include riata, garlic, chili and some other tasty sauces. This place is a must visit if in dar, and you would like to spend less for a great authentic meal!

Very good tandoori food in City Center. Also too many choices for barbecue food. My favorite is Chicken Gajjar with chips.

A famous, BBQ restaurant on a street corner in downtown Dar. Sit outside at plastic tables and soak up the atmosphere. Although it looks scruffy, the BBQ chefs are skilled in both the spicing and cooking of their meat and fish. All the dishes we tried were delicious. The Indian lady who ran it told us the spice mix used... More
