Woodberry Cafe

Reviewed By Proudmama35

So we saw them on Insta and thought wow! The cakes looked so good! The presentation! Like you could order an assortment of cake slices... so I insisted we stop by and do this. Well, huge mistake! They seemed to not know what to do or what we actually wanted... the girl at the counter was busy talking to someone about God knows what and counting some money... the guy who finally came to ask what we needed did not understand... but still went to the back to “get a box” for what we needed even though there were only 2 cakes to speak of... I reserved judgement because who knows right? We were standing there for a good 8 minutes (I counted after it felt like he’s gone to actually buy the box somewhere else) and when he finally emerged from the back, he was holding a box that he was planning on reusing for us! I’m not sure what the box originally had but I don’t think it was safe for what we needed... I pointed this out... they seemed perplexed... by this time I was very annoyed and walked out... I will NOT stop by ever nor will I recommend anyone go there to be subjected to this kind of treatment... like what the heck? Almost felt like I was being punked but the cameras never materialized.Do NOT waste your time...1 Star is for the ambiance that I experienced before speaking to anyone there... seriously NOT worth it!Wow! Hi, I'm not sure what happened. I'm very sorry to hear about your experience and also sad that you didn't get to try our cakes. It definitely sounds like there was a misunderstanding. All of our take-away containers and boxes are new but the larger ones must be stapled together. I'll speak to our supervisors to enquire further on this matter. If you can send a PM on Instagram I'd greatly appreciate this so that I can make sure something like this doesn't happen again. Most importantly I'd like to win you over with a proper caking experience. We are a small business and we do make mistakes but we always try to make things right.

Chaiwala Cafe

A very exclusive and comfortable cafe in the heart of town suitable for family, couples and friends. We provide excellent local and international cuisine, varieties of tea, coffee, juices, shakes, snacks and more. Enjoy sitting in an AC environment with F

Conveniently located for a quick snack. One of few cafes to be found in Dar. As the name suggests, this place is famous for its teas. There is a selection of snacks too. Our order took too long which was frustrating considering it was not busy at the time. The Zanzibar mix was too bland and disappointing. The parathas were ok and the coffee was fine.Overall not a pleasant experience which was a shame as we were really looking forward.

Bandari Grill

Reviewed By MSAhmed

Mostly had breakfast here and a few isolated dinners. Staff are nice. Nobody troubles you. The breakfast spread is medium but very different. Not the ones you usually get. If you are a health freak then too this could be it. Even the juice. You got someone blending in veggie juices too,that too the fresh variety. Dinner is great however better to avoid local flavors here. You might get better culinary delights if you go out to the locale. Not that the local grub out here is bad. It's just that it got continentalized. Grills are excellent. Again it's got Bandari signature flavor to it. On the whole its something pleasant with a view of the jetty, the ocean, some busy roads.... And enough private space between tables.

It was a Thursday night and we arrived at around 22h00. The place was packed with an amazing vibe. Despite being full service was good and we ordered drinks by the bottle and it arrived with sparklers. Quite an impression. The Shawarmas ranked with some of the best I have had. A most enjoyable evening.
