We enjoyed a quick visit for lunch. There is a nice selection of indian foods for a decent price. The service is quick. Fried chicken was crispy outside, and tender inside. Being belgian, I am allowed to say that the fries were well fried and crispy, as opposed to the warm, greasy and soft potatoe slices you are likely to... More

Very small restaurant in the city centre. Has great zanzibari mix and other snacks. Their juices are good too. Friends have also enjoyed the masala chai. Reasonably priced. Taken tons of friends and newcomers to Dar to the Restaurant and always had good reviews. Often gone to get takeaways too. The service is quick and efficient.

I often eat here when I have little time and want a quick meal. This place has no frills but it is clean, provides a variety of usually fried food (Gujrati dishes like bhajia, etc) and zanzibar mix, fresh juices and some nice tea.

A cute establishment in the city center, with a delicious taste of local flavors, try the Zanzibari Mix and their assortments of fresh juices. Perfect afternoon treat in town.

I love this place. Tons of yummy fried foods. They have excellent chai and the lemon juice is so good, its hard not to drink it all in one long sip. Caution though, ladies must sit upstairs. If this bothers you, you might want to consider somewhere else.

After having the mouthwatering mix and the savory samosas had a taste of their yummylicious cupcakes which were freshly baked... Great place for a quick satisfactory bite.. Not a very good place to eat at, but great for take outs...
