“Too many flies.”
Review of Fish Monger

Fish Monger
Ranked #220 of 321 Restaurants in Dar es Salaam
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 April 2013

I would have rated this higher but there were just too many flies buzzing all around me to enjoy the food. I had the shrimp and kingclip type fish and the taste was good. But, when you are battling flies, it was just uncomfortable. You sit outside and it was quite hot. I think if they would turn on some fans, it would have helped a lot.

The setting of the roof top restaurant is ok but the food is below par. I had a fried fish which was more than fried and dry. None of our party of four was satisfied but possibly the chef had a bad day.

I would have eaten at the hotel instead.
Nice enough place without being special, (its a terrace) nice ambiance. But clearly marketing to tourists.

To be fair i arrived late, having watched the football first, However i had checked in advance and I still arrived 45mins before last orders for the kitchen. Calamari starter was quite nice, main course was fresh fish, very powdery, either overcooked or not fresh (or both). Just after sitting, they started to clear the tables around me, and despite the fact I was not the last to leave, felt pressured into paying and leaving, was reminded that as the waiter was leaving, could i settle the bill before finishing, oh and did i want to leave a tip.

The Karambazi restaurant next door is way better. (but even there the tip was mentioned 3x)

there's actually nothing what distinguishes fish monger from a average fish restaurant apart from the price they dare to ask for their frozen fish dishes.

Service is quite good, the food is excellent. I am a seafood adicted and I know when people treat seafood properly. The fish fillets with prawns and calamary were simply good. Will get back.
