Dining at Southern Sun Dar es Salaam

Tanzanian cuisine is an experience in itself. With African and Arabic influences we like our food fresh, spicy and and full of flavour. Southern Sun Dar es Salaam has some of the finest dining in the city as well as some of the best views. See what we’re eating for the day in Dar!

Breakfast for champs

Kivulini Restaurant at Southern Sun Dar es Salaam arguably has the best breakfast spread in the city. We loved digging into the buffet while the chefs prepare our eggs at the live cooking station. They say you should always eat breakfast like a king, and at Kivulini we definitely do.

Lunch with a view


After spending some time exploring the local attractions, lunch at Baraza Grill, Cafe & Bar is the perfect spot to relax and replenish yourself. Sitting outside on the terrace with views of the sparkling pool and neighbouring Botanical Garden is a sanctuary in itself! Today, we’re dining on the fragrant and delicious Coconut and Prawn Curry.

Wine and Dine time

We’re back at our favourite spot Baraza Grill, Cafe & Bar for dinner. This time we’re seated inside for the cosy and intimate atmosphere. It’s a tough choice between the grilled chicken (who can resist the rotisserie chicken rubbed in exotic Zanzibar spices) and the succulent fillet steak. We go with the red meat this time (which just means we’ll have to come back for the chicken!)

After dinner drinks

We end off our day at the Baraza Bar where the barmen are incredibly friendly and can whip up a mean cocktail!

And with that we say cheers to another successful and delicious day in Dar es Salaam!
