“Loved It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

I was in Arusha for three months during 2013, and Mango Tree was always where the night began. No matter where we ended up, we started in Mango Tree.

The staff were super friendly, and always made a big deal out of things like customers birthdays and special events- after three months it was kind of hard to leave. There was dancing on the bar when the music was too good not to, jovial arguments were had when sports events were shown on the big screen, random answers were shouted up during the regular quiz nights, profanities were shouted when I was loosing at table football or beer pong, drinks were spilled, sheesha's were smoked; shot's were drank (I even have one named after me...probably a bad sign!), and a whole load of barbeque chicken was eaten (the chinese style is really good).

But it wasn't even just the cracking night life, you could pop over during the day and have a gander at the local lunch menu- now I wasn't a big fan of local food in general, but I lost count of how many times I ate lunch at Mango- it was delicious. Granted, it is Africa so the service was probably a little slower than this westernized girl is used too, (well A lot slower) but you could just chill outside in the sunshine while you waited.

The atmosphere ranges from relaxed to 'party party' and everywhere in between, and Mango even hosts a number of charity events, that bring together not only the wazungu (white people/ tourists) but also the locals aswell.

Oh and if you're nice to the bar staff they might even help you with your kiswahili!

Great place, and I don't think I once had a bad time there (and I was there a lot.)

“Good for sports and drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

I like going to Mango Tree for a few drinks and socializing. They have lots of drink options, plenty of room inside and out, and a gigantic screen for matches. The food is awful - the options are limited and what they do have is usually incredibly greasy and bland. Typical bar food I guess...

“Fun place to hang out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

I visited Mango Tree Bar back in January 2013 for a couple of nights. It's a great place to chill and meet people. The staff was very attentive and swift in serving drinks. I would definitely visit again and recommend this place to my friends and acquaintances. Cheers!!
