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.

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...More
