I have been to Mamboz Sizgrill several times and never faced disappointment! The BBQ chicken, mishkaki and nundu is among the best you can find in Dar es Salaam. So if you're coming down, you cannot leave without having a meal here!

Visited to have my dinner and ordered chicken pousine with masala chips, food served was very delicious, services were good, this restaurant is very reasonably priced, located in the city centre and they have got sitting arrangements outside in an open area where you can have your dinner with a road-view (tourists can enjoy the most).

Nice bbq of Tanzanian specialities, but too long to serve. Poteatos not well cooked. Kind waiters and very typical decor.

As always the culinary choices in East Africa are plenty. Mamboz takes this to the next level with a great atmosphere and super amazing food. I had the steak here and it was superb... Authentic cuisine with great hospitality. A must visit when in Dar es Salaam.

This is a brilliant local BBQ place where you will enjoy a variety of beef, chicken and fish dishes prepared on the massive BBQ's in the street. We had the Mamboz Plater and it was awesome! A bit spicy, but very flavoursome and the meat was nice and tender. You won't spend a lot of money here, but you will... More

I visited the place with my wife and 3-year old kid. The food is awesome. No complaints about the ambience as food in this part of Dar es Salaam is normally served and consumed by the street.

I remember when mamboz started some few years ago, the food quality was great. This time however, I didn't enjoy. The mishkaki was very hard. Fries were not good at all, horrible. Chicken was not bad. Waiter service was quite poor, we had to wait 10 mins before someone came to ask what we wanted. Worst of all, the people... More

I went for a late dinner and decided to try the deliciously smelling food at Mamboz. I had barbequed chicken with a variety and spices. Very tasty.
