Zanzibar Archipelago, Tanzania Food Guide: 5 Asian food Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Zanzibar Island

September 2, 2019 Tambra Mccollister

Find out what Asian restaurants to try in Zanzibar Island. The Zanzibar Archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, is a breathtaking spot to escape from the world. You’ll enjoy clear, turquoise-blue water; shallow sandbars perfect for wading; and many small, nearly deserted islands virtually unvisited by tourists. Explore the World Heritage Site of Stone Town, Zanzibar City’s old quarter. Or just go beach to beach between tiny fishing villages—each one's better than the next.

Kijiji Restaurant

Reviewed By DPG31

Away from the beach, so requires a walk through the village (with the approach being pitch black at night), and oddly, when I went, I was the only guest, but the staff were amazingly welcoming and friendly, and the food was great. The starter I had of vegetable tempura was really well cooked and actually a large enough portion for two.Octopus for a main course was tender and flavoursome.Make sure you ask them for some of their fresh chilli mixed with oil to make a dipping sauce - It blows your head off but is delicious and addictive (and washed down with a cold beer, the perfect thing to have with dinner).

Situated two floors up and with a fantastic view of the harbour and boats - their twinkling lights at nighttime. This (Indian) restaurant mixes traditional recipes with a fusion of Mediterranean and African flavours to produce some exquisite dishes.The lobsters and sauces were perfectly cooked and served together with a delightful fish soup and naan. These washed down with not one, but two, cocktails made a perfect meal to be finished of with homemade pistachio Kulfi and, if not being too greedy, freshly made gulab jamon!!All in all a wonderful meal from the Silk Route.

We stopped there after wandering the streets of Stone Town as we needed a break from the many sellers. The restaurant has tables on a terrace and fans which make the stay more pleasant. We didn't feel like Japanese food and come across this place by chance. Our waiter (Franco Rosso) was really good and navigated us through the menu: we had an amazing tuna carpaccio and fried octopus with a refreshing beer. There is a good variety of food including chicken dishes, salads, sushi.
