I can say The Station Tanzania is a small food hub to eat. You can have good lunch. Food is average.

We did not book for lunch and when we arrived it was closed but Serena and her mum told us that they would nonetheless prepare something. And what a something it was!! We ate amazing food and drank good wine and their company was so enjoyable! We definitely recommend it and will come back!

We got take out food from here several times, and never disappointed. The vegetable curries are always fabulous, and can order in advance for breads to be ready when collecting. They also go to the farmers markets in Usa River and Arusha, and had some great salsa (with a nice kick to it!) and tortilla chips at these along with... More

After reading the reviews we took the taxi to the station out of the city center. What a memorable evening and experience. We got great Goan style food (a lot), a superb evening and above all, wonderful hosts. Kind people with the real feel how hospitallity should be like. Unfortunately we left Arusha, otherwise we would be back deffinitely!

My wife and I recently went out for a date for lunch and happened to see The Station's sign in Njiro, we followed the road back a bit and found it without much trouble (although if it had been night, we would have not seen it.). The atmosphere was quaint and peaceful. We... More

The station isn't a restaurant... It's an experience. It has moved recently, and is now in a house on a dirt road and is pretty tough to find. Our cab driver "knew where it was" and he still had to ask locals how to get there... But WOW was it worth it once we got there. We were served by... More
