Being in Arusha for a long period, the local food can get trivial. Chinese Whispers offers amazing Chinese food, which for me was a very welcome change. Their Szechuan chicken is impeccable.

Easily one of the best Chinese restaurants I have been to. The food was delicious and great value for money. The service was also amazing. The server went out of her way to help us find a taxi. We really enjoyed our experience here and...will definitely return the next time we are in Arusha.More

Appetizers and entrees were very authentic. Portion sizes were huge, each platter could feed 2-3 people. Our waiter Jasper did a great job bringing all the food out piping hot. We would definitely recommend this place to all our friends and family.

Just finished a wonderful meal here. The restaurant decor is very lovely. Our waiter Japhary was very kind and attentive. The food was delicious and we tried one of the cocktails of the day which was equally as delicious. If we were staying longer we...would definitely be back. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Arusha.More
