This is by far my favorite place to stay/eat in both Arusha and the rest of the world. I work for a travel company and we have days off in between tours throughout the summers. I have stayed at Blues probably 6 or 7 times in the past year (by choice), and each time I stay it just gets better.... More

This is a super place for lunch. Fresh food, deliciously cooked and presented in style with friendly service. Today, I had grilled tilapia with hash browns and salad from the 'specials' menu. Excellent! The setting is quiet and relaxing on the terrace overlooking the garden.

Just returned from a week in Arusha and very much enjoyed Blues & Chutney. Quirky and charming, fun and relaxed, we were always well looked after. Wonderful breakfasts and excellent dinners when we stayed in. The gardens are lovely and we had several meetings with colleagues there, always with coffee and tea supplied by the friendly staff. The bedrooms were... More

I ate a lovely lunch today at Blues & Chutney, a little restaurant tucked away from the busyness of Arusha. The food was delicious, and the decor charming. I am definitely going to go back!!

Not only is the food fresh and creative, the menu varies daily and they have theme nights. So don't be surprised to find celebrity chefs featured, wine tasting menus or live jazz music when you visit. I also love that they have an open kitchen so you can watch them make everything from scratch...the homemade bread is to die for!... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had two breakfasts and dinners. All means were very nice, well presented and service was excellent. the accommodations were good, and comfortable with very helpful and friendly staff. If you want something a little quieter and laid back than the main part of Arusha this is worth looking at. We would recommend for accommodation... More

Was here with friends and hubby for a Great friend's memorial dinner, and boy was this place a HOOT! The food, service, simple African hints to a homely B&B decor made for an unforgettable evening. Will surely be back for an overnight stay!!!

my wife and I joined our friends at the Blues & Chutney recently to celebrate the life of a friend and the setting could not have been more welcoming, the food was great, the dessert was the icing on the cake for sure. Nice and cozy, downside, just the rooms are too few...excellent place all round.

We had dinner at Blues and Chutney and - having been shown the rooms - were very sad we hadn't booked one of them for our stay in Arusha. Food was delicious, the place cosy and quiet. The rooms are individually set up and tastefully furnished. A great place to stay.

My girlfriend and I were referred to Blues and Chutney by a friend and were thrilled with our experience there. The food was great, the staff were very friendly, and the atmosphere of the hotel was amazing. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
