Ooooh boy, this is a hotspot to get your bellies full with best dishes from roasted Chicken 'Kukuwa Kuchoma I say' and tasty salds. You will simply enjoy their simple service. Awesome location in streets of Arusha city next to the Mosque. Pocket friendly, get food here.... You will not regret it.

Always good to get out and check the city! Ok, not so much to check in the city, but khans BBQ is definitely a good address to try during your passage in Arusha. Good food, nice welcome, even though the restaurant is a spare part seller during the day, he pulls out BBQ for our taste! No alcohol as no... More

We ate at Khan's BBQ twice and it was very good. The food is spicy, the chicken and meat are great and well seasoned.

Khan's BBQ was a wonderful introduction to my first day in Arusha! (Mid Oct 2016) The experience was fantastic! Khan was such a character and it was refreshing to meet the man himself working on the scene! A lot of the locals had eaten at Khan's and told me it was a good pick. So THANK YOU TripAdvisor for introducing... More

We've eaten at Khans hundreds of times since moving to Arusha many years ago and I've never felt the need to write a review until now and it's only because of some of the disappointing / whinging reviews I've read. I love the location of Khans. It has a great atmosphere and for those who don't live here it gives... More

Our driver suggested this place, we would never have tried without his recommendation. The food was great,cooked roadside on grills. The owner was at our table within seconds and we were treated like royalty. The prices are very reasonable (low by American standards) and the portions are generous. It has Indian influence as would be expected but not overly flavored... More

not glamorous but definitely very tasty and good value. Great for people watching. Khan is also a great host and will ensure you are looked after.

Eaten at Khan's a number of times and my only complaint is that he serves too much food.....basically barbequed chicken but a dozen salads to go with it....and you take as much as you want. The quality is excellent, the price is most competitive and the overall experience is most interesting. He is set up on a side street, serving... More
