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.

Reviewed By subashnib

My hubby and I went looking for a vegetarian restaurant in Stone Town and was not disappointed when we were steered in the direction of Joshi's! The hospitality of the charismatoc owner...Joshi ...is amazing.we learnt about the ganesha festival that was taking place the next day from joshi.We shared a full gujarati vegetarian thali between us. The portions were generous enough to have left over.Joshi also has a selection of zanzibar fusion dishes among many other Indian favourites.my highlight....the rich mango lassi.give joshi's a try...you wont be disappointed.

We went here at lunch in order to stay on the beach area. Nice staff but food nothing special: hamburger and chip- to much oil and fat taste, plain focaccia, cocktails quite light...

The food never disappoints. My second time from my first visit in 2018.Owner is indian...the team is all sk friendly and great.Cant have high expectations its local style and you need to be flexible and easy! Example...our bread reached much earlier than the food. The bread is made fresh so much more enjoyable warm!We ordered a seafood curry and a shrimp curry dish that came with french friends. We ordered a 2 plain naan and 1 butter naan and paid 32,000tzs The shrimp curry with chips was my favorite neither was spicy but both rich in flavour in their own unique way. Simply amazing and highly recommended!!!! Dont miss this restaurant it's a must try if you're in stonetown!
