Great place to order pizza for delivery. The price is affordable, and they also deliver to the opposite side of the town.

We did the walking tour with Freddy this morning. Its really a recommendation. He knows all ins and outs of the city, as well as many people on the streets and markets. We had local coffee on the go in a very local place. We...visitid 3a4 markets, all very fascinating and vibrant place. Mister Freddy was a professional, he took very good care of our safety and explained a lot of things! He explained in detail all the different public transport and how the system worked. A great idea if you want to learn some things about Arusha, and want to get among the locals!More

We took cooking class with Gladis, a nice Maasai girl who was the cook and our teacher for the class! We first walked to the market with Gladis and watch her buy the ingredients to prepare the different meals. On the way back, we bought...some sugar cane to chew while walking! Back to the cafe, we dressed up as chef and started to prepare the food! We prepared five different plates : chapati, ugali, pilau, fish (I forgot the name) and baby spinach swahili style! After everything was cooked, we started eating all these delicious plates! Amazing! Maybe one suggestion, it would be appreciated to have a little booklet with the name and recipe of each plate!More

Really enjoyed our meal here - we are both vegetarian and ate well - service excellent - the setting in the trees - a little oasis within the town most welcome. Enjoyed watching the dancers rehearse for tomorrow night.

Me and my partner went there for NYE party. We had dinner there around 8pm. Both of the staff and food were very nice. In my opinion, the highly recommended chicken with coconut sauce was not as good as the grilled lemon chicken though, it...was a bit watery. We stayed til 11pm after ordering two cocktails, they were quite strong. A group of young tourists came and started dancing, and we saw a few local guys with cool outfit. We didn’t think anything’s gonna happen so we went back to the hotel to watch the firework. Hopefully I missed the fun part so I can go again next time.More

We were so happy to find this place as there not unlimited choices in Arusha. Via via is so much fun, we went on a Thursday night which is when they have live music. The bar is a bit poor in choices, mostly beer but...good enough to enjoy the music and the dancing, they have African music but also international pop. A great evening, we did not eat there but the bar was great. We went back another day on a Wednesday but it was empty so I recommend to go on Thursday.More
