“Simple good food”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Got to know BBQ Village after indication of a local. It's not very easy to find it. Staff is nice and helpful. Restaurant is full of indian-tanzanian families. Restaurant has a playground which is good if you go with kids.
I ordered the seafood platter but I asked to replace the white fish to tuna and I was attended without a problem. Food was not bad, prawns and lobster were really good but the tuna was very well-done and the calamaris were impossible to eat (hard-rubber).

“Great simple food!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Had a seafood platter here. Was excellent! The seafood was fresh and not too much was done to it, which really brought out the true flavors of it. A little pricey though, but worth it!

“Not what it seems”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

There are some BBQ food cooked outside but the menu is made up of Chinese and Indian dishes. The food is just OK. Average Indian food and average Chinese food. It is a bit of a basic cafe environment. Service is quick and pleasant.
Can't say i will be rushing back. There are plenty of good Indian and Chinese restaurants in Dar rather than go to one that tries to to do a bit of both
