“Great food, great service, lots of flies...”
Review of Chef's Baking Shop

Reviewed 20 March 2013

We had a lovely lunch here and welcomed getting away from the standard tourist places on the beach. This restaurant is not much to look at, and without the sea breeze there were a lot of flies around us as we ate - we later learned this is partly because of the season. However, the food really was delicious, and tremendous value - I think about $4 for a meal including soft drinks.

This is like eating in someone's home, and the staff / owners are incredibly welcoming. It felt like a local business worth supporting, and a good option for the more adventurous diner.

The food at Chef Baking is definitely the best food you can get in Nungwi. And it is the cheapest! Hard to believe but true. Ask Christopher which fish is fresh that day and go for it grilled. For 6000 Shilling you get a proper meal and a juice or soda. The downside (for some) may be that he does not serve alcohol or that the place is not located on the beach. However, one nice fact to know is that apart from the tasty food the money you spend actually goes straight to Christopher, a Tanzanian, who you will meet for sure if you visit, and who puts his two children through school with it... Open from early morning till late evening, electricity allowing Christopher bakes fresh bread every day, there is a small lunch menu and a bigger dinner menu. As indicated, the place is two shops over from the supermarket and straight up from Cholo's bar (a 1 minute walk from the beach, across the soccer field). Enjoy!
