Eating at The Dhow Restaurant is a unique experience thanks to our magnificent centrepiece an original Dhow! This once sea worthy Dhow sailed up to the beach outside The Zanzibari and was carried into the restaurant to take up its new role as our bar.
All the furniture in the restaurant is made from reclaimed Dhow wood and each piece is unique. You won’t find a dining experience like this anywhere else in Tanzania!
Maintaining the trend of originality, we make full use of the wide variety of spices that are available on the island to produce delicious and unique dishes. You’ll enjoy tender beef fillet steak, organic fruits and fresh fish caught the same day, all prepared by our high calibre chefs – the tastes will dazzle your senses.
In addition to the dining area we have three open plan lounges which are the perfect place to relax before dinner or to indulge in a couple of cocktails during our daily cocktail hours. All the lounges are decked out with Dhow furniture and one has a widescreen cable TV; perfect for catching up on the latest news and sports.
We serve fresh fruit, melon boat with yoghurt and honey, eggs cooked to order, omelettes, toast made with homemade bread, pancakes, banana pancakes, orange
and cinnamon pancakes, beans, cheesy beans, sausages, fresh fruit juice, coffee and tea...you will not be disappointed!
For lunch or a light dinner, we offer a great selection of freshly prepared dishes - Healthy salads, super sandwiches, tasty pasta and rice dishes and our homemade pizzas.
For your starter or a simple snack, we offer our signature coconut king prawns, tasty samosas and fishcakes and the best fries around. You can finish your meal with homemade ice-cream or dessert of the day.
